Sean Hutchinson claims his boozer has been visited by former resident “James Richard Stopford” for years.
The dad-of-two says the spook is “pure evil” and hates women and children. Sean, 45, was videoed taunting and swearing at the spirit alongside medium James Higgins who visited the pub to try to spot any paranormal activity.
In the footage Sean, who says the ghoul once threatened to kill him, confronts it before the film is dramatically halted by James.
He says he stopped recording for “safety reasons”. The eerie footage has been viewed more than 21,000 times.
Sean, from the Bate Hall in Macclesfi eld, Cheshire, said it wasn’t a pleasant experience.
He added: “The ghost is demonic. “He is here permanently. I confront him every day to keep him away from my family.

“He is pure evil. He thinks it is his house but it isn’t. It’s my home and I am not going anywhere.
“He is pure evil. He thinks it is his house but it isn’t”
“I have had a paranormal team here twice and even some of them are terrified of this place.”
The pub, which dates back to 1525, once hosted Oliver Cromwell as a guest. It has a Jacobean staircase and priest holes that served as hiding places for Catholic clergy.
The staircase carries marks which legend has it were made during the hanging of a witch. Sean claims the pub has 21 different ghosts because it is where laylines cross and is on the site of an old gallows.
Medium James, 25, from Tytherington, Cheshire, said: “There is something in there. It’s a bad place. I put my hands on the wall and felt like I could see something.
“It was draining my energy and I thought I might faint. We don’t condone engagement with spirits but Sean was arguing with him.
“It became like taunting and created a very negative vibe. It didn’t feel safe – that is why I had to stop the vigil.”
