Welcome to The Nutshell – the smallest pub in Britain!

Welcome to The Nutshell – the smallest pub in Britain! image

Ever wondered where the smallest pub in Britain is? The answer is Suffolk. Bury St Edmunds, to be precise.

With its bar measuring at just 15ft by 7ft, The Nutshell has been proud to serve customers jostling for a place at the bar since it first started serving beer in 1867, according to their website.

Britain's smallest pub is now major tourist attraction

Holding the Guinness Book of Records title of the smallest pub in Britain has naturally turned the tiny boozer into a bit of a tourist hotspot. Visitors from near and far flock to the Nutshell just for a little drink (only a few at a time, of course).

The Nutshell is far from just a novelty. You’re guaranteed some of the finest ales from across the region, plus you can enjoy the interesting historical items, photos and memorabilia on display.

From their website: We invite you to come and sample the cosy experience of drinking in The Nutshell, on a busy night elbow to elbow with our locals and visitors.

So, if you fancy a drink and you love small spaces, head to The Nutshell!
