The Robin Hood Hotel at 126 Clifford Street in Chorley existed under that name by 1875. It closed and its premises were demolished c. 1989.

The Robin Hood Hotel is said to date back to the 1860's when Clifford Street was developed. However, the first notice with a certain date is in a newspaper article from 23 Aug. 1876.[1] At the rear of the hotel was an added attraction in the form a large bowling green. The premises of the pub were among the buildings demolished to make way for the south-bound carriageway of the Chorley By-pass (A6) c. 1989. Topps Tiles (see photo in image gallery below) now occupies the area that was once the pub's bowling green.[2]
