Also found as the SUSSEX ARMS.

Located on the corner of Botolph Street and St. Georges.

Address also given as St. Augustine's Street in 1845 and 1854.

There was an objection to licence renewal at the 1905 sessions on the grounds that the back door opened into an enclosed passage.
The matter was held over to the adjourned sessions held 9th February 1905 where the matter was amicably settled.

Bullards records show that the house closed before October 1961.

A note dated 11.08.1961 states that trading had temporarily been discontinued by reason of Compulsory acquisition.
