Next door to the former Conservative Club is the Sun Hotel. Previously known as the Sun Inn, it replaced an earlier inn of the same name. This inn gave Sun Street its name during the 17th century. However, for the preceding two centuries, the thoroughfare had been known as Angel Street, after the Angel Vaults Inn which stood next to the Sun Inn. The Angel had the date 1450 on its façade. It was later rebuilt, but was eventually declared unsafe and demolished in 1956.
