The Robin Hood in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, was located at 71 Stafford Street. It was in existence by 1911.

Stafford Street has since been renamed The Strand,[1] but the southern stretch of that street, where the pub was situated, no longer exists. The site is near the modern Trentham Road Interchange, just south of Uttoxeter Road.[2] The Pub Wiki provides information on publicans for the years 1911 to 1940, the establishment being listed as a beerhouse at the former date.[3]
