Must say the Robin has had a ok make over,but will always have a history of past problems; beer prices are dear compared to other local establishments and we all know where the stretford blues drink.

Stretford and Urmston Blues
The offical Stretford branch of the Manchester City supporters club have moved from the Metro Club to the Robin Hood. We are a family orientated club and would not take our members to a club that was not very well run. The lads that own the pub and the manager have made us very welcome. The food is very good and the place is spotlessly clean. They have changed the lay out of the pub to accommodate us in a separate room and it can be used for functions.
Memberships for the supporters club can be obtained from any of the bar staff. The staff at the Robin Hood are doing a very good job you should give them a try.

Visited the Robin Hood on Friday lunchtime after reading that the pub had been taken over by three local guys who were committed to offering an improved menu. The food was excellent (all home cooked, large portions and very tasty). The decor has been toned down from its previous incarnation, thank goodness. I hope that more people support what these guys are trying to do. As someone else has said here, Stretford is in dire need of a half decent pub. Well worth a visit for the food alone! Pubs with great food give punters a real alternative to staying at home with cheaper off-licence booze (e.g. The Horse & Jockey - Chorlton) Good luck!

Despite offering "Fresh Coffee and Free Wi-Fi" they actually only offer instant coffee and no internet access whatsoever. The décor is tired and the less said about the clientèle the better. They do not offer cask ales; only pasteurised, gas-pumped bitters or the usual selection of lagers.

I realise that they're clearly struggling after having a young lad shot in the car park but honestly; a better kept pub in any area would not attract the kind of gang culture which leads to this sort of thing.

The area is dire for pubs since the Green Windmill closed. Do yourself a favour and get a taxi to one of the fantastic bars in Chorlton or Altrincham.

Not very good publicity in the minute... what a dreadful incident to happy. Just hope the owners don't suffer too much

good pub, maybe a little expensive and always charging different prices each time you go to the bar!

Not bad for Stretford (there's not much else there) but steer clear of the cheap burgers, you'd be better off eating at Wetherspoons!

What's wrong with bringing the kids in,provided they behave and it's not past a certain time in the evening.Some of us wouldn't be able to visit the pub otherwise.
This sort of clientele is the future of pubs as British watering holes become more like our European counterparts, who knows people might actually learn how to drink sensibly
I'd rather a pub full of families having a drink together,than a pub crammed with 20something lads in tracksuits nursing one pint all night,slipping to the toilets every so often for something more chemical and then deciding who or what they are going to vandalise on the way home.

there's absolutely nothing wrong with it other than the prevalence of people bringing children in, although that's one of the more unwelcome aspects of the smoking ban which is affecting almost all pubs. the food is cheap and the beer's fine.

in any case, where else in stretford is there to go?

Pub full of scallies and size 14 plus gold wearing slappers. Lived in Stretford all my life and have seen too many fights in this hole. Bouncers on the door but they're scared of the local 'mafia' scum bag families. Only reason to go would be to buy cheap E's or get your head kicked in.

Good for a few pints after work and you are right about the beer garden. The staff are fine and the food is alright. Worth an early evening stop.

It's a muppets dive. Not much going on really. Just a load of crackerjacks reliving former glories.

recently given a make over the robin hood has changed derastically from a traditional pub to a plastic city centre pub,beer is'nt bad but is pricey,if crowded you could be waiting to be served for quite a while,its probely better to visit this pub on a lazy afternoon in the summer when you can take your beer into the very smart beer garden.
