‘The Smallest Pub on the Planet’ is a small room (or arguably, I suppose, a large cupboard) in the front of the timber light railway station, and also with a pleasant garden to the front which was quite popular during our visit last weekend. It is open 11am-11pm Tuesday to Sunday, though I understand it closes for the winter months. As you enter the pub, the bar is in front of you and there is a padded bench seat onto which four of us managed to squeeze. It serves ales from three handpulls, changing regularly as the many pump clips adorning the walls and ceiling testified. I had a fine pint of Jennings Joggers Tipple. There were also lagers and Stowford Press cider on tap, a limited spirits selection and other ciders and bottles in the fridge. To capture that fully authentic pub feel, there are also a miniature dartboard, pool table and football table affixed to the ceiling.

I thought this was a great place and would certainly come back if in the area – it’s a bit of a wander from the town centre (or a miniature train ride if you fancy) but well worth it.

Wonderful pub, measuring 5.95 metres.
Situated on the Lincolnshire Light Railway on King' Road. A pub in Colorado is disputing the Signal Box's claim to be the smallest as they say the Signal Box has a beer garden and should be included in the dimensions,but the Guinness Book of Records are likely to rule against the Colorado pub.
If you get 4-5 people inside it would be packed out,when I went in i was the only customer ,so had the place to myself.
I Had a great pint of local brewed Tom Wood's " Blooming Lovely " bitter.
Ever changing selection of Real Ales.
Nice little garden area.
Closes during the winter months.

Awaiting confirmation of the smallest pub in the world by Guinness Book of Records.
