were spooky goings on at the Hope & Anchor on Saturday
night when the pub was visited by witches, ghosts, ghost
busters and even the Devil himself.
Devil, whose name was Dave Walker, was actually on his way
to Hereford but called in at the Hope and Anchor for a pint
on the way and won a meal for two in the Hope & Anchor
restaurant as first prize in the pub's Hallowe'en fancy
above, wicked sisters, Liz and Ave cast a spell on me when
I took their photograph on Saturday. I think it went something
along the lines that I will be supplied with free beer for
life, whenever I visit the Hope & Anchor. Shame really
as I only drink about twice a year and I'm saving myself
for the Potters Bar Reunion which is coming up soon.
four 'Ghost Busters' capture a ghost called Clive in the
parlour restaurant. A collection of very friendly looking
ghouls, ghosts and witches. Staff, Danny, Iain, Tigger,
Tina and Christo relax after closing time.
many other public houses in Ross-on-Wye, the Hope &
Anchor is not without its 'genuine' ghosts. Tina telephoned
me a week or two back because she was there alone, early
in the morning and could hear the sound of a bar stool being
dragged across the floor. Things also get mysteriously moved
in the Boat Bar.
