Drink in the "smallest public bar room"

Your author found himself drinking in the room at the front of the Dove public house in Hammersmith on Saturday, an atmospheric and friendly space which a certificate on the wall confirms was designated in January 1989 by the Guinness Book of World Records as the "smallest public bar room".

Though your author is unsure whether any space has subsequently claimed the title, in the world of pub folklore an old certificate is usually more than enough to seize the imagination, and in this interesting little pub, which has been owned by Fullers since 1796, it's just one of many reasons to visit.

  1. Is this for those who like to see how many people can squeeze into a small space and enter the guinness book of records/

  2. No thanks :) I like space and comfort. And windows.

    But isn't it interesting that the Guinness Book of World Records would think of the category: The Smallest Public Bar Room.
