The Eight Kings

A newspaper article in early 2022 reports that the pub is pestered by "Noises, physical contact and sightings of the human and animal kind", which seems to have been provoked by refurbishment work at the end of the previous year. A lady has been seen in the restaurant, apparently waiting to be served, but no one was there when staff went to check. In addition, a lady playing darts saw the pub's lodger next to him, but when he looked round, he was actually standing behind the bar. The pub dog reacts to something too, described as being "spooked" - which only happens when someone is upstairs; naturally, there was no-one there. There are also mentions of "noises" being heard and this was thought to be the dog who had got out, but this turned out not to be the case.
