The trio are said to have plotted the death of Henry V in 1415 with a view to placing Edmund Mortimer, Fifth Earl of March on the throne in his place. However, the Earl denounced the plot and the men ended up being tried for treason. Having been found guilty they were led from the pub up the road to Bargate to meet their fate. To this day, numerous people have reported seeing a spectral procession of people leaving the pub!The building itself is very interesting given that it is cobbled together from various different time periods! The cellars are able to be traced as far back as 1148, while most of the main building is from the Tudor era, but the interior parts are as recent as the 1950’s. This mix of time periods means that there is plenty of opportunity for various different ghosts to have taken up residence. In fact, aside from the ghostly procession, there have also been reports of a lady in her sixties drifting through the bar area and the sound of heavy boots stomping through the cellars!
