Ye Olde Gatehouse

This prominent mock-tudor building, standing proudly in the centre of Highgate Village, takes its name from the Gate House at which tolls were taken from travellers heading out of London on the Great North Road. A public house has stood on this site for hundreds of years, and it is impossible to gauge just how many thousands of people have passed through it over the centuries.

Many live-in publicans have reported feeling unwelcome, and even experienced the resident spectre or spectres directly – one was even hospitalised for shock and another for falling – or perhaps being pushed – violently down the stairs. Visitors to the pub have also encountered an entity in the rooms which encircle the ballroom.
