Brits can officially drink and dine inside our favourite pubs meaning no more rainy meals in the garden!
It’s been far too long since we’ve enjoyed a pie and a pint in our local.
So if you’re looking to make the most of our traditional pubs and seek out some weird and wonderful venues, listen up.
Britain has tonnes of pubs that are supposedly haunted.
It would be strange if a country with as much history as ours didn’t have a few spirits hanging around for paranormal fanatics to try and contact.
But, where should you go if you want to enjoy a hauntingly good night?
From the oldest pub in Wales to a boozer where spirit children are said to walk the halls, these watering holes would be bound to leave shivers down your spine.
Check out five of the most haunted pubs in the UK below…
1. Skirrid Mountain Inn, Wales
As the oldest pub in Wales, this Monmouthshire venue is pretty ancient and hides plenty of secrets.
Ghost hunters and lovers of the paranormal regularly visit to try and contact the spirits within.
A former landlady is believed to haunt the inhabitants and freaky activities often happen from objects moving by themselves to strange noises.
It’s also thought that prisoners often stayed overnight at the inn before their executions – and the block their bodies were laid on can be seen today.
Around 180 people may have been hung here and visitors claim to have felt the noose tighten around their neck for a moment while staying.

2. The Angel Inn, Lymington, Hampshire
The Angel is a 13th Century pub and it’s thought to contain at least six spirits.
As one of Britain’s spookiest inns, locals say the ghost of a seaman often hangs around the bar.
And, a coachman is seen sitting in the kitchen on occasion.
If you dine or stay at the Angel then you could hear footsteps at night and people have reported the sound of a piano… when there’s no piano at the Inn.

3. The Red Lion Public House, Avebury, Wiltshire
This pub sits inside a prehistoric stone circle.
Avebury dates from between 4000 and 2400BC, and is actually made up of three stone circles – which means it’s a pretty magical place to be.
The pub’s building dates back to the 1600s and is known to have a number of ghosts within and around it.
One such apparition is a phantom carriage which clatters through the yard.
And, inside the pub the ghost of a woman called Florrie appears.
She reportedly took a lover while her husband fought in the English Civil War.

When he returned he discovered her affair, shot her lover and stabbed Florrie throwing her body down the well.
That well is now topped with glass and used as a table in the bar…

4. The Golden Fleece, York
This Yorkshire pub was built in 1503 and has a long history of hauntings.
Geoff Monroe, a Canadian airman stayed at the Golden Fleece in 1945.
He sadly killed himself by jumping out of one of the windows in a terrible tragedy.
Ever since, customers have reported being woken up by the soldier in full uniform and were chilled by his touch.
Footsteps have also been heard pacing up and down the hallways at night.
It’s also thought to be haunted by Lady Alice Peckett and up to fourteen other spectres including One Eyed Jack who wears a 16th Century red coat.
Plus a grumpy old man is often seen in the bottom bar and a boy who was trampled by horses in the Victorian era haunts the top bar.
It’s even said that Roman soldiers have been spotted in the cellar where dead criminals used to be stored.

5. The Drovers Inn, Loch Lomond
This Scottish pub has stood for over 300 years and has provided a bed for thousands of travellers walking the West Highland Way.
The pub is warm and welcoming, but don’t forget about it’s eerie side.
A vast number of ghost sightings has been reported at The Drover’s Inn including that of George, a regular at the pub in life.
His ashes are kept in the bar and he’s been witnessed popping up at times.
There’s also Angus the Drover who was allegedly murdered near the Inn and walks the halls at night… screaming.
A family who were killed in a storm nearby has also been spotted standing at the bottom of the bed in one of the bedrooms with their chilled breath visible in the air.
