It was once used as a brothel where all sorts of horrendous crimes took place including murder.

It’s now said that the pub is haunted by the ghosts of former working girls and a nasty male spirit!

Phantom footsteps running along the pub’s hallways and doors slamming on their own accord are often heard by terrified witnesses within the building.

Ghostly indentations on the beds, as though an invisible person is sitting there, have been seen on many occasions in the guest’s bedrooms.

Members of staff and guests alike have been scared witless after seeing the ghostly apparition of a man sat next to the fireplace watching them.

Some say he’s the ghost of a former owner of the pub!

Spooked members of staff are often reporting that something unknown has pushed or prodded them as they go about their daily work.

And terrified witnesses have seen a ghostly apparition of a lady standing in the ballroom.

Some say she’s the ghost of a lady who sadly committed suicide by hanging herself!

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: Amberley Castle

The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.

The castle started life out as a timber-framed hunting lodge in 1103.

But it upgraded to a fortified manor house in 1377 by the bishop of Chichester.

After the Reformation the castle still belonged to the church but was leased out to the crown.

During the English Civil War part of the castle was destroyed by Parliamentarian forces and it fell into ruin.

The Duke of Norfolk leased Amberley Castle in 1893 and started to renovate it.

Today the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.

The castle is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl called Emily who committed suicide at the castle.

Her ghostly apparition has been seen by terrified witnesses in and around the Herstmonceux room!
