The Haunted George
5 Market Street, Hatherleigh EX20 3JN
You’ll find the George situated on Market Street in the small market town of Hatherleigh.
The former coaching inn dates back to the 15th century.
It’s believed that the building was originally the court house of the Abbots of Tavistock.
The pub was a Grade II listed buildings until it was burnt down in 2008.
After the fire the owners carefully restored the building to its original design but it lost its listed building status.
The pub is said to be haunted by the ghost of a friendly monk whose apparition has been seen wandering around the first floor of the building.
The upstairs of the George is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young woman.
Apparently, she’s beautiful but also stark naked!
Witnesses have reported hearing the sounds of a phantom coach and horses pulling up outside the inn.Click Here to Stay in the George
