There is another belief that Gregory had lived at the pub until the First World War, with had been killed during that period. According to reports by licensees, his ghost inhabits the older parts of the pub, which have history from the 12th century. A comparatively recent proprietor saw Gregory as a tall dark man, standing at the front door. She explained that they were not yet open, with Gregory vanished. A ghostly handprint has appeared on a small windowpane that would reappear after being cleaned away. Paranormal experts studied this. However, they had no explanation.
