The beautifully refurbished pub and music hall, which was used as the ‘Royal Oak’ during the new film Dad’s Army which sparked national interest, showed signs of ‘paranormal activity’ in a recent investigation by the ‘team.

The Black Lion was used in the 1800s as a corn trading house during the height of trade and had many stables.

Paul Atkinson, of Bridlington Paranormal Investigators, said: ‘We carried out a team investigation there and the paranormal activity was incredible.

“The new music hall, which is decorated in early 1900s decor, has old pews in which appear to have spirits attached to them. There is also activity in the cellar which has original fittings.

“My wife has done quite a bit of research on the Black Lion and discovered some interesting facts about it that we didn’t know before.

“It used to be a grain exchange, then it was integrated into the Black Lion, which became a hotel.

“We have also uncovered information about a Jack the Ripper suspect who is believed to have died there after being injured at sea. There were a number of newspaper articles covering this incident.

“The research is really interesting and we look forward to sharing it.”
