Nutshell – Brown

Nutshell - Brown



Situated on a corner in the historic town of Bury St Edmonds, Suffolk, The Nutshell is recognised at England’s smallest pub according to the Guinness Book of Records.

It measures just 15ft x 7ft, and as 12 customers make it a squeeze, we’ve painted just seven regulars enjoying a tipple inside!

On display inside are suitable curiosities, such as the smallest ‘Times’ newspaper, and the smallest dart board.

Notice the black cat in the top left window. Inside the pub is suspended a mummified black cat, discovered during building work. Builders used to brick up cats  behind chimney hearths,  thought to bring good luck into the building – not so good for the cat obviously!  If you visit, ask the landlord for a “Baloga Taxi” – he will be very surprised.

First produced by Hazle Ceramics in 2008, The Nutshell measures 19cm (7 &1/2″) tall to top of chimney x 9.5cm (3 & 3/4″) wide at the widest point.
