  • At this ancient inn, with a fine 17th century staircase, visitors do ask for particular rooms where ghosts have appeared. One couple, who asked to stay in a specific room, took photographs and when the film was developed, they found one image of the wife standing by the fireplace with a blue misty human size shape beside her. It is unlikely this is the manifestation of their most famous ghost, John Davies. In 1690, he fell down the cellar steps with a knife in his hand and died from either an accidental stab wound or a broken neck. Cleaners have seen Davies sitting in another bedroom where they described him as wearing blue with white shirt. A visiting medium told the then proprietor that two children aged 10 and 13 had died from starvation many years previously and they also haunt the Pied Bull.
