The Smallest Pub?
The Nutshell has served customers jostling for a place at the bar since it began offering beer in 1867. Now a major tourist attraction locally and worldwide, The Nutshell serves some of the region’s finest ales. It also has a bar with historical items, photos and much more memorabilia.Other contenders for this coveted name include The Smith’s Arms pub near Dorchester... The story says a former blacksmith was granted a licence by passer-by King Charles II who thirsted for a glass of porter!

 The Nutshell is tied to the Greene King Brewery, also in Bury St Edmunds. A museum, shown above, adjoins the brewery and traces the age-old world history of beer-making.
