The Haunted Dolphin Tavern
Quay Street, Penzance TR18 4BD
Along Quay Street in Penzance is the historic Dolphin Tavern.
The granite inn dates back five centuries and with such a long history it’s no wonder some say it’s haunted…
An old sea captain nicknamed George is said to haunt the upstairs bedrooms and corridors.
Witnesses have described his ghostly apparition as wearing a tri-cornered hat and a rather splendid jacket.
Back in his time, poor George was said to have been hung for a petty crime.
Startled guests have witnessed the ghostly apparition of a Victorian lady materialise and walk across the main bar and disappear through the stone wall.
The final ghost to show himself at the Dolphin is of a young fair-haired man.
He’s known to appear in the landlord’s bedroom in the middle of the night either sitting on or standing by the bed.
Nobody knows who exactly he is!
