1. Ye Olde Salutation Inn, Nottingham
Ye Olde Salutation Inn is one of the oldest pubs in Nottingham. Not only that, but it is built over a system of caves that date back to the 9th century. The six most famous ghosts are Rosie, a young flower seller, three different landlords, a pirate and a highwayman.
Local legend says that 4 or 5-year old Rosie died when a carriage struck her in the courtyard. She was taken down into the caves to keep cool but died before the doctor could arrive. Soon after her death, customers of the pub began to complain of small mysterious scratches. After this had gone on for about two weeks, the pub’s landlord took a doll down to the caves and left it for her. The attacks stopped and since then, people have continued to leave presents for her. There was one landlord who did not believe in her and took all the toys out. All of his beer went off overnight and no one has questioned her presence since.
In addition to Rosie, there are tales of three landlords, all called John, who died in the pub. It is believed that one of them hung themselves, another accidentally poisoned himself and his family after handling rat poison and the third fell down the cellar stairs and broke his neck. One of them is obsessed with the cleanliness of the cellar. If it is messy, he throws things and slams doors.
Other sightings include a pirate who drowned when he fell down a well after hiding in the caves and a highwayman who has been seen drinking at the ground floor bar.
