The Robin Hood in Hatfield was located on the south side of the Common, presumably on or near the still existing Robin Hood Lane. The pub existed by 1881 and until c. 1971.

The earliest record of this pub known to IRHB is the 1881 census.[1] At that time the part of Hatfield in which it was situated was named New Town and was located some 700 meters west of Hatfield proper. Tody this neighbourhood is in central Hatfield. The pub closed at about the time when St. Alban's Road was closed,[2] which must have been in 1971 or 1972.[3] Presumably Robin Hood Lane was named after the pub.
