If you like beer, beer and more beer, or if you just like orange juice and a great atmosphere, then the Robin Hood pub in Hamilton is your perfect match.
One of the most popular pubs in Bermuda, it is located on the outskirts of the City of Hamilton and is frequented by locals and visitors alike.
Known as the ‘Hood’ to locals, it is a British-style pub and therefore purveys lots of different beers and lagers. It also has a huge variety of spirits or shooters and one curiously named ‘Buffalo Sweat’ which we’re led to believe will ingratiate you to the local bar-stays should you buy and drink one yourself!
It is a favourite for sports fans and televises live sports from around the world including soccer from England and Europe, world rugby, hockey and American football.
There’s plenty of room in the bar – although it can very busy during specific televised sporting events – which means you can easily get a table during the day or in the evening. It’s known as a proper drinking pub, so it’s ideal if you’re out for the night, in large groups, or want to ‘get a couple of drinks’ at a reasonable price.
Most nights have some form of entertainment – although it’s normally sport – and on Tuesdays there’s a popular quiz night. Each week brings a different quiz theme, such as pop music, sport, general knowledge, and all are welcome to join in the fun. On a Friday evening there’s a drinks happy hour which is fills the place with locals looking for a refreshing end to their working week and the pub puts on a complimentary food buffet.
The Robin Hood food offers customers traditional pub fair including, apparently, Bermuda’s favorite pizzas. Other mains are burgers, curries and steaks. It also carries English favorites like Fish and Chips and Bangers and Mash. And they’re all priced very reasonably.
The pub and its locals are very well intertwined. The locals love it so much that they famously have their own soccer (football if you don’t want to get on the wrong side of them) team. All are welcome to join the team on their infamous travels to games at home and away, and, if you are any good with a ball, we’re led to believe that you may actually get a start in the team! (Also, going by what we’re led to believe, the team are rather quite good, so you may have to bribe the team coach with one of the Buffalo Sweat shots to get a match if you met him.)
The pub is large enough and capable enough to serve a lot of people swiftly and en mass, so there’s no need to book or reserve a table to miss out on dining. However, If you have a large group for food, it’s always a good idea to give them a call and they’ll reserve some tables for you so you can all sit together.
Throughout the year, the pub celebrates local and international holidays including Halloween and various patron saint’s days and can cater for birthday parties and other celebrations. Just ask if you are unsure.
