About the Pub

One of the few traditional pubs remaining in the centre of Guildford. After a period of closure, the pub was refurbished and reopened under new enthusiastic management.

Beer quality here is exceptional and a customer voting scheme is in place to decide which beers will be available next.

Can be very lively in the evening and a great place to eat.

Opens at 8.00 a.m. for breakfast but must be pre-booked but alcohol is not sold until 11.00 a.m. The opening hours can vary so best to check before travelling from a distance. May open for groups of 10 or more pre-booked on a Sunday or Monday

Historic Interest

Opened in 1865 on the edge of the new Charlottville Estate. In 1863 Dr. Sells sold the site of the Robin Hood to William Pimm and John Engall. Here the public house was soon built as well as a row of cottages behind it known as Pimm1s Cottages. William Pimm leased the Robin Hood to the Friary Brewery in 1863 and they purchased the freehold in 1896. the first occupant of the Robin Hood was James Balchin. . The pub was left isolated in 1969 when the adjoining terraces of small cottages were demolished for a new road scheme.
