For years there have been stories of happenings at the Inn. Many people who have stayed have reported strange incidents occurring at night. Popular TV programme ‘Most Haunted’ featured Jamaica Inn in what they said was one of the spookiest episodes they had ever recorded! The Ghost Society have made in-depth investigations and compiled a report based on their findings. The areas of substantial interest to the investigation were, The Smugglers’ Bar, The Stable Bar (now the museum), upstairs in the old bedrooms, and the rear restaurant/gift shop area.
During the early 1900s the Inn was used as a temperance house, but there have always been spirits of a different kind at Jamaica Inn. Previous managers of Jamaica Inn have heard conversations uttered in a foreign tongue. Some have suggested this ‘foreign’ language could in fact be old Cornish.
On a moonlit night, when all is still, the sound of horses' hooves and the metal rims of wheels turning on the rough cobbles can be heard in the courtyard. Yet there is nothing to be seen! Who can explain the uneasy footsteps heard pacing the corridors in the dead of night? Who is the strange man in a tricorne hat and cloak who appears and then walks through solid doors?
