Now a Fuller's pub, the Flask has been around London since 1663, so it should come as no surprise that it’s seen some dark times. During a late night dinner here, pub-goers may stumble upon the ghost of a man in a Cavalier uniform or the figure of an old barmaid who supposedly hanged herself in the pub’s basement. Take heed of a sudden temperature drop and swaying lamp lights, as regulars say those are the sure signs of a spirit has entered the room. Whether or not the rumours are true, the Flask has plenty of stories to tell: highwayman Dick Turpin supposedly evaded capture here by hiding in the pub's stables, while customers have included William Hogarth and Karl Marx.
