The Smallest Pub in England

The smallets pub in England ©Britainonview / Richard SurmanNot only is Bury St Edmunds a lovely medieval market town but it also has one of the smallest pubs in England.

The Nutshell” is also known from the locals as a “delightful half pub”. At 15ft x 7ft the seating consists of a window sill/bench, a chair and a table at one end!  That’s it!

Room for roughly 10-15 people however apparently the local radio station once got 102 people (and a dog) in there for a stunt, wonder how they managed it? Some of them must have been under the bench seats….we’ll just have to go there and see for ourselves!

Round of drinks on me, see you there, and don’t miss the cool dead cat on the ceiling!

Tudor Arms voted best British Pub in the World!


Just heard the excellent news that my favourite British pub in Stockholm, the Tudor Arms (Grevgatan 31) has been voted the best British pub in the world (outside the UK) in the Telegraph’s Best of British awards.

The news came as no surprise to me. With a warm welcome, friendly staff, and the genuine atmosphere, the Tudor has been my favourite for years! It is the perfect place to soak up a nice bit of British pub atmosphere. Lovely if you are feeling homesick, or pubsick.

Congratulations to Chris and the gang at the Tudor, you deserve it!
