Glasses often fly across the bar by themselves, faces have been seen at the windows, guests feel a ghostly noose slip around their necks, things mysteriously disappear only to turn up weeks later and residents wake to an icy cold room and the feeling they are being watched. It is thought that one of the main spirits at the inn is that of 17th Century barmaid Fanny Price. Numerous mediums have given this name in connection to the paranormal activity, including Most Haunted's Derek Acorah.
However, it is clear that more than one spirit is responsible for the spooky experiences to be had at The Skirrid Inn.
Even the famous judge Jefferies is said to have started his reign of terror from this place and is said to pay visits to the unlucky.
