Angel Hotel



The Angel Hotel was situated at 1 High Street.
Source: Pete Leach
When I was 13 back in 1964 I used to work at the Angel Hotel Tonbridge at weekends, I got paid 10/0 shillings a week, one weekend the Landlady (I think her name was Mrs Sykes) asked me to stay behind and do some extra work for her, normally I used to clean the bars, restock the shelves and take their Alsatian dog Doogle for a walk, this day she asked me to clean several pairs of shoes after which she gave me a further 10 shillings and said “that’s between you and me, no one will ever know”, that night she committed suicide by gassing herself. To this day I still wonder why and why I was asked to clean those shoes.
