Bar staff spooked by ghost of landlord

12 posts in this topic

Most pubs are used to seeing scuffles and disturbances on their premises, but they are usually not of the supernatural kind.

However, at the Trocadero in Birmingham, West Midlands, Henry Skinner, a former landlord of the well-known city-centre bar, is making his presence felt 116 years after he was murdered there.

Mr Skinner knocks over glasses, flings beer mats and even throws loose change to the annoyance of staff.

But far from being a gin-soaked regular propping up the bar, Mr Skinner is in fact a ghost.

And in the centenary year of the pub being christened the Trocadero, he has stepped up his anti-social behaviour.

For some reason I like the name Mr Skinner. Not sure where I've heard it before?

Skinner is the principal on the Simpsons. Also the behaviorist. B.F. Skinner

He would be very annoying to have around. At least its not their house, would be hard to sleep with him around.

Funnily enough, I've had a strange experience in my workplace this week!! Trust me to move on to a place that's even older than the pub was :lol:
