Greencoat Boy, Westminster
The Greencoat Boy public house can be found on Greencoat Place (formerly Coburg Row). The pub is on the site of the old St Margaret’s Hospital and Green Coat School, after which it was probably named. The old prison Tothill Fields Bridewell (Westminster Bridewell) was located beside St Margaret’s Hospital and was on that site between 1618 and 1834.
I have come across a reference that the Greencoat Boy is haunted but as yet have not found any details concerning any experiences there. However, it is one of a number of locations used by the founders of ASSAP (the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena) to hold their meetings during the early 1980s, so it has its place in the history of paranoraml investigation.
