The ghost here is so closely linked with the Theatre Royal next door that it is assumed to one and the same, though mysterious knocks and raps and an occasional poltergeist incident associated with the haunting effect only the pub. Establishing that the apparition who visits the theatre is a woman is the 'scent of beautiful jasmine', though experienced mysteriously in the cellars. A number of artists appearing in a production at the theatre have witnessed the misty grey shape in one of the boxes, and others have noticed that it travels out of the window in a room just above the main bar. Frequently the smell of jasmine accompanies these 'visitations'. The phantom is supposed to that of a young woman who jumped to her death in the 1800's when here lover was killed in a duel with her husband. Another belief, however is that she hanged herself in a bedroom. But why should she frequent this pub, especially it seems the cellar, is an utter mystery. Could it be that the site of the dual was in the pub or perhaps she may be buried beneath the barrels?
