Birmingham, West Midlands

The Court Oak pub in Harborne is said to be the most haunted pub in the city of Birmingham. The pub is said to be built on the site where many criminals were hanged in the 17th century. It's believed that the pub's resident ghost, nicknamed "Corky", is the spirit of one of the executed.

Corky has been described as a "wine snob" and apparently haunts the pub's cellar, where he's blamed for bottles of wine mysteriously smashing, and some customers have seen the ghostly figure of a man behind the bar. Witnesses say the man appears to be in his 60s and has been spooking the staff for years.
