The building was built in 1782 by local quarry man Jack Bates, who was later known as Jack the Blaster Bates after his exploits in first creating this unique idea for a building. The grotto is built into the limestone cliffs of Marsden Bay in the popular seaside town of South Shields. The Marsden Bay area has been the home of many takes of smuggling, deaths, and suicides. In 1782 Jack and his wife moved into the grotto and ran it as a tea room for tourists to the area. However, in 1792 Jack died and the building went into a period of decline until 1826 when a local man named Pater Allan purchased the property and went on to restore and expand it into a 15 room mansion. It is now a successful pub and restaurant.
With the history of this building and the surrounding area it is little wonder that this place is haunted. Some of the reported instances of the paranormal include strange knocking noises emanating from the cellar as if someone is locked inside. Staff have reported hearing the chain at rattling and clanking at the side of the bar, the chain in which customers are kept on the right side of the bar. There have also been reports of whispering when no-one is around. There’s also mysterious bare footprints that have appeared on the bar floor which cannot be washed away.
Staff and guests have also witnessed the ghost of a man that often appears in the lower cave bar area, also many dark shadowy figures have been seen in this area.
Upon paranormal investigations the investigators have reported sudden battery drainage, strange lights recorded on video, and unexplained sounds on digital recorders.
