Lobster Pot, Blackpool, 1960s
For decades The Lobster Pot was one of Blackpool's best restaurants and it even had its own ghost. In the 1960s, waitresses said a mysterious figure appeared at night after the restaurant had closed. In later years, machinery that had been turned off in the kitchen would be found switched on and working when staff arrived in the morning. This phantom was said to grab female members of staff so hard it left red blemishes on the skin. The stories were taken sufficiently seriously to be mentioned on a list of local hauntings. However, The Lobster Pot was famous for its food with a menu that was peculiar to English seaside towns. Dishes like lobster Thermidor or potted shrimps would come with a pot of tea and plate of buttered bread. It was popular with British politicians and journalists when they stayed in Blackpool for party conferences but has now closed.
