The Haunted Bull
83 High Street, Wargrave, Reading RG10 8DD
You’ll find the Bull situated along Wargrave’s High Street.
The Grade II listed former coaching inn dates back to the 15th century.
The Bull is reputed to be haunted.
The ghostly apparition of a tall man wearing a black hat has been seen sitting next to the open log fire.
For many years the family at the Bull would hear phantom crying coming from Room 2 around the beginning of July.
Apparently, in the 1820s a former landlord discovered his wife was having an affair resulting in him throwing her out and forbidding her to see their young child.
Local legend says she died from a broken heart shortly afterwards.
And now her ghost returns every year on the anniversary of her ejection crying as she packs her bags!
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.
