According to local history in the 1700's the landlord was a retired sea captain allowed smugglers to use his inn. After an unsuccessful raid by the tax inspectors one of them was caught and killed by the smugglers. His body was then buried underneath the fireplace with the idea that no one would ever search under a lit fire. The fire was never to go out until the inn closed in 2007. Legend has it that if the fire ever goes out, the ghost of the Excise Man will haunt the Saltersgate Inn and terrorise its inhabitants.

In May 2016 it was sold (yet again) at auction for twice its guide price.
