Spooked pub-goers say they have caught on camera the spirit that has been haunting their local for years.
Regulars at the Apsley House in Southsea, Hants, say a generous ghoul, believed to be the ghost of a former barman, keeps topping up their drinks.
And at a recent retirement party for one staff member, regular Paul Morgan says he finally photographed the mysterious phantom.
Mr Morgan, 47, said: "I was taking lots of photos with my iPhone because it was a fancy dress-themed party.
"I took a few of a group of friends and it was once I looked at them a while later I noticed something strange in the background.
"I took two shots in a matter of seconds. You can't see anything strange in the first, then a face appears in the next.
"It is very weird. I showed my kids and they couldn't believe it. There was no one near at the time."
Landlord Paul Wicks added they had nicknamed their ghostly regular Reedy - after actor and legendary drinker Oliver Reed.
"People say they have seen the ghost at the bar and that they feel things - cold spots things like that," he said.
"I am a sceptic but can't see any rhyme or reason for what is in that photo."
