  • The pub exhibits ghostly manifestations. these include a previous proprietor who hanged himself in the cellars in the early 1800s. One proprietor, here for several years, Eva Mavis, said they had called him Frank. She said that on occasion Frank comes out and taps customers on the shoulder as a merry jest. When a later proprietor’s husband died in the 1980s, he warned her that if he saw she was drinking too much, he would return to haunt her, with tip her glass over. Numerous times, over the years following, her glass would suddenly turn itself upside down and pour away her drink.
