A pub landlord says a ghost is haunting his historic boozer – after stunned guests and staff reported seeing glasses fly across the air and the jukebox turn on by itself.
Jeremy Stirling, 62, who runs the Maiden’s Head in Canterbury, said the spooky events had mostly taken place in its converted attic, leaving visitors “freaked out”.
The experienced barman said along with smashed glassware, keys had vanished from locked rooms and cleaners had suddenly felt cold in the ancient sleeping area.
And chillingly, he said staff had also witnessed the Kent pub’s jukebox come to life and play a song by The Stranglers while it was turned off at the mains.
The pub building dates back to 1446, according to the boozer’s website – although Jeremy says it is even older.
And he said of the apparent paranormal activity: “A woman said she was lying on the bed and the glass flew and hit the wall.
“And one of the staff says that the jukebox has started playing music when it was switched off at the mains – Golden Brown by The Stranglers.
