Robin was a true gent. Never shy to buy a beer or two after a (not so) hard days work on the various occasions I met him and Matt at the Pear Tree.
My thoughts are with the Butler family at this difficult time.

I will always remember his fun and his incredible generosity. A glass never emptied when Robin was around - I just want to say thanks for all the fun times in the bar. What a great guy and what a big loss.

Thoughts are with you and yours Mat. Robin gave me a job when I most needed one and I will be forever grateful.
