Ye Olde Kings Head

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  Ye Olde Kings Head

Children are heard running around; it is said that they were murdered by their father who was caught in the middle of a love affair. Items are thrown at guests and employees, doors open and close by themselves, lights turn off and on by themselves; there’s a reputation that at least one paranormal occurrence happens a week. Mediums say the number of ghosts here could be as high as 16.

    I spent two nights here in 1974 and heard the sound of running and of Children’s laughter in the room next to me.
    When asked by a member of staff as we were leaving if we had enjoyed our stay, I mentioned the noisy guests next door. She promptly said follow me.
    She opened the door of the next door room and it was completely empty, no guests and no furniture.
