Pub ghost blamed for moving pint of ale


Posted on Wednesday, 9 July, 2014 | Comment icon 33 comments

Who was responsible for knocking the pint off the bar ? Image Credit: sxc.hu
The owners of a 17th century pub were left spooked when a pint mysteriously slid off the bar on its own.
Jenny Heard and Martin McConn hadn't taken much notice of the spooky tales surrounding Cornwall's Crow's Nest Inn when they first took it over, but within the space of only a few days the pair had become convinced that something unusual was going on.

The strangeness began when a pint of beer that had been perched on the bar suddenly slid off the counter and on to the floor seemingly of its own accord.

Rushing over to examine the mess the couple were stunned to discover that the glass had somehow managed to land upright on the floor without spilling a drop.

The Crow's Nest has long been associated with tales of the paranormal including a bell that supposedly rings on its own, a clock that always remains ten minutes fast and the sighting of four different ghosts thought to haunt the property including that of a woman who was murdered in 1844.

"A house doesn't get to be this old without retaining a few of its more peculiar features," said Jenny. "There's room for all of us here and we're looking forward to meeting more of our special guests properly."

Oh. Wow. A drunk specter blamed for moving a pint. If I was a drunk ghost, I'd want a drink, too, and nothing would stop me from having a few sips of a person's drink.

I feel bad if it was a ghost, it would suck watching other people drinking and it couldn't.

nobody was standing near the glass at the time it moved.

I don't want to call anyone at that pub a liar, but my BS alarm went off so loudly that the neighbors complained.

Ha, just stupid, unless it lifted several feet into the air first, this is just stupid and the people at the establishment are just slow... Wasn't even there and I bet I know what happened; most likely a glass with a thick bottom, the "cold beer" leaves what is called CONDENSATION on the glass. Water pools at bottom of glass, water is drawn in underneath the glass with capillary action, a truck or heavy vehicle went by the establishment, made the glass vibrate and hydroplane off of the counter. As for the glass falling and not breaking most likely a carpeted floor with the afore mentioned thic... [More]
