E TA left this review about The Choughs

A 17th Century hotel, allegedly haunted, currently owned by Star Inns. The car park is at the back, there is a small beer garden and a smoking terrace at the side, adjacent to the car park. As you enter from the High Street you pass through a small open area with a pool table on the left and a small snug on the right. The main bar is further in, past a pair of gaming machines. It’s a comfortable square room formed from two earlier rooms. The larger of the fireplaces – an enormous inglenook – is now the main fireplace, and there is a large TV screen which was showing daytime TV when we visited. A large beam above the inglenook has the date 1644 carved into it. There is also a screen and projector used to screen live sports matches. There is a skittle alley at the back which is used as a function room and is reached via a corridor with a piano in it. The young barman was sociable and friendly and the atmosphere was calm and welcoming. Three handpumps on the bar were dry, although Adnams Ghost Ship was available direct from the barrel and was in good condition. Definitely worth including in a crawl.

hi guys ,just to let you all no that after seeing this pub on most haunted i was very intrigued to visit which i did on sunday the 20th of feb this year.having experianced many paranormal events myself we took my friend shas thereand her partner andy for lunch and a spot of ghost hunting.we were not let down.we took many random photos of all the rooms and when viewed later on the laptop were amazed at all the orbs we caught on film.marie the owner and her partner are a lovely couple who came and sat with us for a chat on the paranormal and we talked about both our experiences that we have had over the years.the pub is old and earie with a unusal atmosphere and my group of friends and my partner rich enjoyed our afternoon at the chough and reccomend you guys to visit.you would not be dissapointed that i can assure you .so grab your camera,s and pay marie and her colleagues a visit.you wont regret it.eddy knight anavid paranormal believer.
