The Allen Arms, as it was before being reconstructed in the following year. It was built in 1847, somewhat in advance of the other buildings in the Lewes Road. the reasons for its name are obscure though there were a few houses known as Allen Terrace, in neighbouring Hollingdean Road, so possibly someone of this name owned the land in this area. Above the bars was a long narrow room, ambitiously known as the Assembly Room, in which I often attended cheap dances in 1924.
