Just one of Brighton’s many public houses, but with one outstanding claim to fame – it was completely destroyed by a bomb in an air raid on September 20th 1940. As far as can be traced the Inn was built in 1864 when Lewes Road was developing fast towards the Barracks. The date of the photograph is not known. My guess – the early 1920s. After the site had been empty for 17 years, the Inn was rebuilt and opened in September 1957.
