The "Prince of Wales" was trading as the "Jolly Sailor" in 1841. The building dates from 1761, a tiny flint building destined to become a popular hotel by 1900.

 

From the Kentish Chronicle, 29 September, 1860.

PETTY SESSIONS.—Tuesday.

(Before the Mayor and Alderman Hunter.)

Caroline Farrier, who stated that her father resided at Sandwich, was charged by police-constable Ridnell with sleeping in an outhouse on the premises of Mr. Twyman, of the "Prince of Wales Inn."

From the constable's evidence it appeared that about three this morning, in going his rounds, he found the prisoner sleeping there with a lad named Pettit, about 16 years of age, and he sent him home and took the prisoner into custody.

The Bench considered the prisoner had been led away by the lad, and dismissed the case.
