Old Still Inn, Wolverhampton
The Old Still has a fine theatrical tradition as well as its resident ghosts. The famous soprano, Dame Maggie Teyte, spent her formative years here and many stars of showbiz have called in for a drink whilst treading the boards at the nearby Grand Theatre.
Two of the reputed ghosts here met their deaths in the pub. One was a former licensee who hung himself in late Victorian times. He makes his presence felt in the bar through cold spots and by moving things around. The other was a young child who, at quiet times, can be heard sobbing from one of the upstairs rooms. If you are very lucky you may meet Martha. She sits in the corner of the bar as she has done since at least the 1800s.
It is said the pub can take on an almost Dickensian atmosphere at times as if the very fabric of the building itself was haunted in some way.
