The smallest pub in England

dorset pubIf you happen to be near the tiny Dorset hamlet of Godmanstone, 4 miles north of Dorchester, have a look at the local pub. 20 by 10 feet (6 by 3 meter), it claims to be the smallest in England. It is also quite old, and dates at least from the 15th century. Called “The Smith Arms”, it once was a village blacksmith shop. The local yarn relates that the merry monarch Charles II occurred to pass through Godmanstone. His Majesty not only was an expert on pretty legs, but also could appreciate a good drink. Apparently the king liked the booze he was treated with so much, that he even granted the owner of the shop with the licence for selling the alcohol.
