About Ghost Pubs

Let us tell you who we are

We launched this website on Halloween 2013. It is an encyclopaedia of haunted hostelries, e.g., public houses, hotels, bars, clubs, etc.

We list such haunted establishments, irrespective of whether these are active or even still exist. has an enormous number of haunted hostelry listings. We have collected our reports from a combination of books on the subject, newspaper articles, information passed to us from social media, breweries, pub chains, and finally staff and ex-staff from haunted hostelries.

We are an Authority on haunted hostelries. We are the largest website outlet dedicated to haunted hostelries. We have over 1800 haunted hostelries on record. We remain in contact with high calibre mediums, psychics, and the like. Also, we receive a high volume of web traffic. We are frequently approached for featured articles in the press. For example, the following articles are about us: The Publican’s Morning Advertiser and the North West Evening Mail. We have regular interviews with BBC Radio too.

Ghost Pubs Services

Add a haunted establishment that is still trading

We can add a haunted establishment on this website. We would consider any establishment with a bar. We would make it searchable on this website as well as SEO friendly to search engines, such as Google and Bing. You would need to write a description of the haunting or a ghost story about the establishment. We do the rest.

Extended listing for a haunted establishment

We could write a story for you about haunted hostelry, irrespective of whether the venues are still trading. The stories often draw upon local knowledge to keep the stories as close to the version of events.

Add a haunted establishment that is no-longer trading

We also list haunted establishments that are closed or even demolished. If you add one then we would make it searchable on this website as well as SEO friendly. You would need to write a description of the haunting or a ghost story about the establishment. We do the rest.

Ghost tours and hunts

We offer ghost hunts and tours. Even if we do not offer the specific paranormal service that you require ourselves, we would still endeavour to put you in contact with those who would fulfil your needs. Nonetheless, we are well stocked; one of our tour guides frighteningly resembles Bruce Campbell (Ash, the star of the classic Evil Dead film).

Psychic nights and mediums

We remain in contact with high calibre mediums, psychics, authors, investigators, tour providers, and other paranormal service providers. We are sure we arrange an event for you.
