Scroll through other Bury St Edmunds Real Ale pubs
One of the claimants to the title "England's smallest pub", with an interior measuring only 15 by 7 feet and is listed by the Guinness Book of Records. Main drinking area is crowded if more than 6 people are in bar at any time. The record for the number of people crammed into the pub is said to be 102 (plus a dog called Blob).
Reputedly this was just a small house next to a pawnbroker's, but the pawnbroker noticed that a lot of his customers were alcoholics pawning their property to buy booze, so he saw a business opportunity in opening a pub next door.
Contains various curios including a mummified cat and old halberd. Function room upstairs.
The building dates from the mid-19th century.

In March 1984 101 people plus a dog managed to cram into this tiny bar - it was reported that "the breed of dog was slightly uncertain before the event and a total mystery afterwards".
