The Coach and Horses is one of the best-known British pub names. In Real Life London alone there are still over fifty Coach and Horses pubs. In days gone by the innkeeper would advertise this with a sign depicting both a coach and a horse, indicating that not only did the place have everything the tiresome passengers could wish for, but even provided lodgings for the exhausted mounts, allowing them to be fed and watered ready for the long journey ahead. Not content with this rather prosaic explanation of the name, the landlords of Coach and Horses pubs across Britain have been known to regale their customers with a rather different story. The story goes that an eighteenth century coach pulled along by four horses was driven by a ghostly figure. Those who witnessed the ghoulish happenings describe that as the coach came closer, the driver was headless! If this did not whet the appetite of ghost story enthusiasts, it was also described that the passengers of this supernatural coach were staring through the windows with their skull like faces!
So put on your loafers or stiletto heels and visit the Coach and Horses Pub in Mayfair, but beware of the fabled headless driver!
