There have been accounts over the years that the inn exhibits ghostly manifestations. these include a previous coffin maker, as there are sounds of tapping on wood in the early hours of the morning. Observing girls have described him as a short man with cropped hair and a look on his face of utter despair. According to old legend, there was, at nearby Berkeley Castle, a ‘devouring dragon’.
