It is probable that this building was later called the "Sussex Shades" and later still the "Sussex Arms."

Tunbridge Wells Petty sessions. An Extension of Time.

Mr. H. Steede, of the "Royal Sussex Hotel," appeared for an extra hour to be granted him for keeping opened his licensed premises on the night of 14th October, the occasion of the Annual Dinner of the Tradesman's Association.

 

From the Kent and Sussex Courier, Friday 11 November 1927.

The annual dinner of the Tunbridge Wells Tradesmen's Association came off on Tuesday evening at the "Royal Sussex Hotel." Additional importance was added to the gathering by the circumstance that it was fixed for the same day as the laying of the Foundation Stone of the Pump Room and the association had, with capital taste, invited the Marques of Abergavenny, who had that day performed the ceremony of laying the stone, and many of the leading inhabitants of the town.
