Born in Barnet, London, Robinson began his career as a trainee with Millwall, turning professional in August 2001. Later that month he joined Fisher Athletic on loan to gain some first team experience. He made his Millwall debut on 9 September 2002, coming on as a second-half substitute for Darren Ward in the 2-1 win at home to Preston North End.
In December 2004 he joined Torquay United on loan, playing twelve times before returning to Millwall and establishing himself as a first team regular, eventually gaining club captaincy under Lions' boss Kenny Jackett and establishing himself as a firm fan favourite.
Robinson scored the only goal of the 2010 Football League One play-off Final against Swindon Town in the 39th minute on 29 May 2010 to guide Milwall to the Coca Cola Championship. Paul Robinson was then awarded the Powerade Man of the Match award. On 28 January 2010, Robinson prolonged his contract with Millwall until 2013.
