From the Sevenoaks Chronicle and Kentish Advertiser, 11 February, 1949.

Opposition to the granting of a full licence to Alexander Lovett, "Prince Albert," Tonbridge, was registered by Mr. P. Rendall, for Mr. W. J. Balch, licensee of the "Angel Hotel," Tonbridge, and of the owners, but the application was granted.

 

The pub sat empty for a couple of years around 1980 before it was demolished to make way for the new Sainsburys, Bentals and Angel Centre Leisure Centre (local authority owned). Specifically the pub was demolished to make way for the petrol station and some of the parking there today. The new store opened in 1982.
