Smugglers and murders once used this place as a hide-out. It is also said that the innkeeper at the time used to murder many people and then dump their bodies by a trapdoor into a well beneath it. The most commonly seen ghost here is that of a monk who floats around on the grounds, while other reported ghosts include two women, one of which is usually seen in the lounge while the other is by the fireplace, and a cavalier. In the surrounding area of the property, the ghosts of a highwayman and a man beaten to death by a mob are also reported.
