A ghost nicknamed Corky has been allegedly smashing wine bottles to show displeasure with the selection.
The pub is built on a 17th century hanging ground and the ghost is said to become active and smash bottles every Halloween like clockwork. "It isnít so much things that go bump in the night as things going smash in the night at the Court Oak," said Nuala Gallagher.
The ghost, named Corky by regulars at the Court Oak pub in Harborne, Birmingham, apparently has strong opinions about the wine list. Part of the Sizzling chain, the pub is built on the site of a 17th century hanging ground, sparking speculation that Corky may be the ghost of someone who died there years ago.
