Fluid London has put together a definitive list of both spooky & scary Pubs in London. From the scary pubs that continue to haunt Londoners, to the traditional old pubs of London that have 'real' (honest) ghosts and spirits haunting them, along with pubs that are well, simply just scary. You'll also find some London pubs and bars that are doing something a bit special for Halloween this year.
Whitechapel & Wapping / Bar / Cuisine: Pub
Knightsbridge / Bar /
Belgrave Square. Lesson of the day - never cheat. One unlucky officer was caught cheating at cards and subsequently flogged to death. His ghost now haunts the Grenadier keeping a watchful eye on the pubs patrons.
Garlic & Shots
Soho / Bar / Restaurant / Cuisine: Bar
Soho. This heavily Gothic styled bar doesn't rise from the previous evenings death till after the other pubs in the area have closed. The basement is candle lit and decked out all Goth like, with skulls, spider webs and its very own crypt.
The Old Queens Head
Angel & Islington / Bar / Restaurant / Club / Cuisine: Pan Asian
Islington. Rebuilt in 1829, the Old Queen's Head is still haunted regularly. On the first Sunday of every month the tapping of feet and the rustle of a dress can be heard as the ghost of a small girl runs up the stairs and along the passageway.
Hampstead / Bar / Cuisine: Eclectic
Hampstead Heath. Two Spanish brothers built this pub in the 1500's; unfortunately soon after opening The Spaniard they killed each other in a duel over a woman. Surprisingly they don't haunt the pub leaving that to the more illustrious figure of the notorious highwayman Dick Turpin
The Old Bull & Bush
Hampstead / Bar / Cuisine: Modern British
Golders Green. Part of the Old Bull & Bush dates back to the reign of Charles I and its been haunted by knocks and bumps for years with no one knowing why until the recent discovery of a skeleton and used surgical knives were found in the basement of this pub...
Marylebone / Bar / Cuisine: Pub
Marylebone. The ghost of one Richard Neville is said to haunt the cellars of the Volunteer. He has been seen on many occasions walking through the cellars clearly dressed in surcoat, breeches and lavish stockings.
Angel & Islington / Bar /
Angel. Dating back to the 1800's, the Camden Head is supposed to be haunted, problem is the ghost ducked out of fulfilling its duties back in 1991 - maybe this year it'll return from its holiday and make a reappearance.
Marylebone / Bar / Cuisine: Eclectic
Marble Arch. Giving you Subterranean Hell Noise every Saturday this is a Goth paradise playing the best Death, Black Metal, Gothic, Industrial, 80's and bang-up-to-date metal, in the marvelous Gothic environment of the Marlborough Head.
Crouch End / Bar /
