If you go to BSE you must go for a drink in the Nutshell. I think its the smallest pub in the UK and worth a look in to see its size.
We had a drink in The Nutshell mainly for the novelty value - Britain's smallest pub, which really is tiny. The welcome was warm and friendly. There were a couple of Greene King real ales on draught. No slimline tonic for my gin, though. Worth a visit if you're in Bury St Edmunds.
I always go to the nutshell for the really welcoming staff there, the food is good and the beer is better. Met three amazing people there in half an hours time and talked about a whole lot of things. They have some nice souvenirs, the atmosphere is friendly and warm, a really nice place to be.
when we go to Bury st Edmund's we usually drop in to the nutshell.good range of beers and some interesting souvenirs. ? the chat is always friendly but being the smallest pub its not possible to have a private one. who cares its the welcome and the banter that we enjoy. look forward to our next trip to BSE.
Having walked past for many years I finally popped in during a shopping trip this weekend, and am so glad I did! This pub may be the smallest in the UK but it has a big personality. A good range of Greene King beers and some great souvenirs too. I will definitely be visiting again on my next shopping trip...
Had a couple of pints of Abbot Ale here with my wife but very expensive at almost £4.00 a pint , certainly won.t be back here as only under £3.00 in the Grapes around the corner !!!
We enjoyed our pint at the nutshell. Billing itself as the worlds smallest public house, its a bit cramped for more than about 8 people to have a drink. There's a novelty in that, matched with very funny service, which made for an enjoyable stop as we toured Bury.
While passing by we popped in for a pint at lunchtime as it is renowned for being the smallest pub in Britain. Thankfully it is first and foremost a genuine pub, and has not lost any of its character. The barman was very friendly, and didn’t show any contempt at the endless repetitive tourist questions we were asking. The beer... More
You have to visit The Nutshell at least once for the novelty of the place. It really is so small if there are more than a dozen people in it's full, although a tourist trip it is a decent pub. The barman is friendly and happy to give the history of the pub (140 years old), it's true the decor... More
The Nutshell is somewhere that you have to go at least once for the novelty, but beyond that it is also a fairly decent pub. The barman is friendly, the decor is weird but interesting and the locals tend to be welcoming and friendly. The biggest problem is the size (of course!), as if the other customers are a touch...
