The Smallest Pub Debate
This title is much sought after and hotly contested. Most pubs turn out to be too large. Guinness Records also stipulate that you must have a full licence to serve alcohol and be in a permanent, commercial building to qualify. This rules out many wannabe contenders that have included in the past an 8 x 8 feet old Signal Box at Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire and a 3 x 3 feet pub in an old Telephone Box at Shepreth village, Cambridgeshire that only opened for a single day!

 Greene King’s brewery building has been in the town since the late 1700s. Their museum traces the world history of beer.
