Percy’s is set in the Shropshire market town of Whitchurch. The town has many visitors from around the world and is popular with the canal boat people and walkers.
The Star Hotel is steeped in history. Built around 1760 on the original sandstone walls to the Medieval Watergate. The original sandstone arches can still be found in the cellar. It was an old coaching inn frequented by interesting and some unsavoury characters throughout its history and is mentioned in old Whitchurch journals.
In the 1900s the then landlord was convicted of distilling his own whiskey.
It is also haunted by William and Edward who were gentlemen and who show their displeasure when loud music is played and women dress inappropriately inside the Inn………….they are kept on their toes here then!
The Paranormal Society have visited and have held a night time vigil and conducted an Ouija Board session. We were described as very paranormally active……..but thats hardly suprising since it was conducted on our Mortuary Table.
We are a Cafe, Bar and Antique Gallery in one place, as well as a small but major music venue and pride ourselves in having the best Coffee, Alcoholic Beverages, and Music for miles around.
Bands and Musicians visit us to play and we have a thriving underground music scene.
