The Robin Hood on 8 Nelson Street in Buckingham was in existence by 1891 and at least as late as 1911.

The excellent UK Pub History site lists six items of publican and resident information for the years 1891-1911. It notes that the pub was listed at 8 Nelson Street in 1891, while in other years its address was listed as 7, 8 and 9 Nelson Street.[1] Following usual practice for built-up areas, the 25" O.S. map of Buckingham published in 1900 (revision 1898-99) labels the pub, on the west side of Nelson Street and opposite St. Rumbold's Lane, simply 'P.H.' This is useful, for it tells us that the house number has not changed. No. 8 Nelson Street is still found there, though there is no trace of a pub and it is uncertain if the present buildings at what would then have been numbers 8-9-10 date back to that period. IRHB has not found any record of this pub in the 1881 census (online at the Genealogist).
