Greyhound Hotel

2 High Street, Carshalton

Built over 300 years ago, the Greyhound was a noted centre for cockfighting and other similar pursuits. For many years, spare horses were kept here to assist in pulling coaches and carts out of the mud when they were stuck. One morning, a traveller in a long cloak was found dead on the doorstep of the pub having frozen to death during the night. His ghost still haunts the pub and has been observed in the early hours of the morning grey faced and shivering. During recent renovations, a marble mosaic of a greyhound was found and is believed to have been made by Italian artisans some 250 years ago.
