The Robin Hood in Edwinstowe is located adjacent to Robin Hood Farm.
The first record of this place-name I have found is the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1900, based on a survey carried out in 1897 (see Maps section below). The inn is indicated there as Robin Hood Inn. However, already on the 1884 map, the word "Inn" appears next to Robin Hood Farm. The Robin Hood is still in business. The junction where the pub is situated is known as the Robin Hood Crossroads. There is a Robin Hood Avenue in the immediate vicinity.
