The New Inn

10 High Street, Amesbury, Salisbury, Wiltshire

A lovely, little, white painted pub, it is Second-grade listed and stands opposite its more opulent neighbour, the George Hotel. It is early 19th century with some architectural detail from the early 17th century. The New Inn is on two storeys with six bays and six panelled doors. There are deep chamfered cross ceiling beams. Since it is called the New Inn, it is clear that it is on the site of a previous inn, possibly from the 15th century. It exhibits ghostly manifestations. these include an elderly man dressed in agricultural style clothing with a pull down hat. When he appears, he is typically sitting at a table with a large pot or drinking vessel at his elbow.
