The Robin Hood, Burham

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-10-12. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2021-02-12.

The Robin Hood in Burham is located at the end of a short lane on the north side of Common Road. It has been in existence at least since 1897.

Dobson & Taylor list the pub as "[a]n inn on the edge of Buckmore Park, not far from the Rochester-Maidstone road".[1] "Buckmore Park" is labelled "Buckmore Wood" on the O.S. maps listed below. All the maps, the earliest online published in 1897, include the pub under the name "Robin Hood & Little John", which has now been shortened to The Robin Hood, and the pub, like many of those that have survived the pub death in recent years, has become a gastropub.
