Did you know that the smallest pub in Britain is the aptly named Nutshell in Bury St Edmunds? It opened as a pub in 1867, having previously been a fruit shop. The bar measures just 15 feet by 7 feet, a space into which 15 customers would normally constitute a squeeze, but where the record number of people fitted in stands at 102 – though like all good pubs you’d imagine there’s always room for one more.
