This historic eatery is housed in an old horse stable, and serves up delicious food and some rather interesting ghost tales. The building is believed to be haunted by a friendly former owner, who has been seen in the main dining room and has been known to move chairs around at banquets. On the upper floor, staff claim to feel someone brushing past them and occasionally hear disembodied footsteps.
