Bosses at the Tyler’s Kiln, in the historic city of Canterbury in Kent say motion sensors have captured things moving in the dead of night, sparking claims the pub is haunted.
Staff have also reported shadows passing doors, glasses flying off shelves and lights turning on mysteriously.
But there is no proof the apparent episodes are the work of ghosts.
Owner Allister Collins has now put together a collection of creepy clips, he claims were captured on the the pub’s CCTV over a two-month period from August 4, highlighting what he believes are strange incidents.
Here’s the video:
Allister says he has been overwhelmed by the interest in the footage, which he claims is unedited, since he posted it on Facebook.
Mr Collins said: “It has been quite surprising just how much reaction there has been.
“I’d always heard stories about the pub being haunted, and staff are always talking of hearing footsteps when no one else is around.
“There’s also a cold spot immediately in front of the bar, even with full heating on. Customers regularly move from that spot due to the lower temperature.”
Pub cleaner Amanda Gilbert swears by the footage and says that she has experienced plenty of strange occurrences in the building.
“I can hear the saloon swing-gates swing when I am cleaning the front of the pub, and when I go to have a look they are still swinging slightly, but no one else is in,” she said.
“One time I walked past the drinks storage cupboard and it was shut with the lights off, but when I came back the cupboard door had opened and the lights were on.”
“The electricians checked the CCTV because they didn’t believe me, but it just showed weird distortion and the light coming on.”
“Sometimes I hear someone walking around upstairs. There are very heavy footsteps, but there is never anybody up there.”
The ghost of a local mechanic has been suggested as one likely suspect, but Suzanne Sherwood, whose parents used to run the pub when it was the Ivy House, thinks she knows who is to blame.
“That’ll be Gilbert,” she said. “My mum and dad used to live there and run the Ivy House many moons ago and Gilbert made his presence felt, a former landlord.
“Prawn cocktail crisp bags disappeared regularly.”
