Marine Hotel, 4 North Street, Littlehampton

Littlehampton pub history index

This hotel was used by the fledgling commandos unit based in the town in the last war under the command of Ian Fleming the author of the James Bond books & films. These soldiers played key roles pre and post the D Day landings behind enemy lines in France and many lost their lives or were wounded. Many wrote their names on a board in the bar and it is understood that this has been rescued in the remodelling.
Closed mid 2000s, now remodelled for private residences 2013. *
