PINT FOR YOU OR IN THIS CASE SPIRITS

At the Trocadero in Birmingham, West Midlands, Henry Skinner, a former landlord of the city centre bar, is making his presence felt over 100 years after he was murdered there.
He knocks over glasses, flings beer mats and even throws loose change to the annoyance of staff. But far from being a gin soaked regular propping up the bar,
Mr. Skinner is in fact a ghost and in the centenary year of the pub being christened the Trocadero, he has stepped up his anti-social behaviour.
Mr. Skinner served in the military before taking over at the establishment which was then named the Bodega, an upmarket winebar that was a famous haunt of actors and sportsmen. The burly publican was well known in the city and ran a popular boxing academy but on 5th December 1895, he made the mistake of crossing brothers Herbert and Arthur Allen. Arthur Allen worked at the pub but was sacked on the spot and a furious row over wages erupted. In a fit of rage his brother, grabbed a gun and shot the landlord.
The Birmingham Gazette reported: 'The bulldog pattern bullet, quite capable of felling an ox, buried itself in the wainscoting. Skinner turned back towards the noise and the next shot caught him in the side of the chest as he turned.'

Skinner is not the only spirit said to wander the building as two girls who fell to their deaths on a spiral staircase also make an occasional appearance. The wafting smell of burning wood is also believed to be a ghostly reminder of the building's previous use as a fire station. Skinner tends to knock over glasses and leave things out. Some very strange things have been placed on tables, such as clocks. His party piece is making the money in fruit machines rattle which is unnerving if you're the only one in the room.
