The murders in this inn was the basis for Sweeney Todd; wealthy travelers were stripped of all useful items, then a level would open up a trapdoor where the victim would fall into a boiling pot of fat where they would die. Most of the activity is upstairs where the victims met their fate; objects move, lights flicker, noises are heard, and ghostly figures are reported here.
