This historic tavern and inn has always been a pet friendly establishment, which explains why the apparition of a large black dog has been seen bounding through the hallways of the public house. The other apparitions reported are a coin collector (who has been seen and heard in various parts of the building), and the apparition of a lady who has been seen standing behind people on the downstairs bathroom.
