“Next to the face is what looks like a man in a tuxedo and dickey bow.”
A paranormal expert alleged that the Liverpool pub has been at the centre of paranormal claims for a number of years and is one of 150 haunted pubs in the city.
One story of a haunting dates back to 1897 – five years after the hotel was built.
The then-landlord Robinson Pemberton supposedly heard a scratching noise in the cellar which got louder and louder.
Three days later the pub is said to have shaken dramatically “from top to bottom” and the noise stopped.
The peculiar goings-on did not stop there, though.
One night, a pub customer knocked three times on the wall… and three knocks were allegedly returned.
