Discover Who Haunts the Kings Head Pub in Chertsey

You’ll find the Kings Head pub along Chertsey’s Guildford Street.
The Grade II listed pub dates back to the early 18th century.
And it has a ghostly tale to tell…
The Phantom Monk
In 1977 an Australian barmaid who was working and living at the pub was rudely awoken one night when her bedclothes were pulled off her bed.
When she looked down at the bottom of her bed she saw a ghostly apparition of an elderly monk standing there looking at her.
Apparently he had a rather rancid odour about him!
Some people have suggested that the ghostly monk may’ve had something to do with the dissolved Benedictine monastery of Chertsey Abbey.
