Robertsbridge is a village in East Sussex, England within the civil parish of Salehurst and Robertsbridge. It is approximately ten miles (16 km) north of Hastings and thirteen miles (21 km) south east of Tunbridge Wells. The River Rother passes through the village.

The village is thought to date back to 1176 when a Cistercian abbey was founded there by the Abbott, Robert de St Martin. When a market charter was granted in 1198 by Richard I to 'Robertsbridge' (Pons Roberti in Latin) it was the first recorded use of the name. The abbey was dissolved in 1538; however, the town flourished, and many of the oldest existing houses in the village date from the 14th and 15th centuries[1], including The Seven Stars Inn on the historic High Street.

Robertsbridge is well served by transport links — with the Robertsbridge station on the main railway line from Hastings to London and the A21 trunk road, although the latter does have problems with transport delays. The opening of the new Robertsbridge Bypass in 1989, relieved the village of constant traffic through it.

Robertsbridge Community College, a specialist Mathematics and Computer college, is the smallest such in the county of East Sussex.[2]. Among other sports clubs is the Robertsbridge Rugby Football Club[3]
