The smallest pub in Britain had to turn away one of its biggest customers simply because he was too big. The man ┬áis 6’7″ and the pub is 15 ft by 7ft. Yeah, that’s a tight squeeze.

According to UPI.com, the Nutshell Pub in Bury St. Edmonds in eastern England is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the smallest pub in Britain. During peak hours of service, there is not enough room to host many customers so owner Jack Burton has to turn away some people. For example, Adam Thurkettle, whose 6’7″ frame was deemed too large for the tiny pub during its busiest time.

“Adam’s a real gentle giant. But on a busy night he takes up such a lot of space that I have to turn away at least four normal-sized drinkers,” Burton said.

Thurkettle understands as he has to duck to get inside the pub.

The tree surgeon says, “My size is a great advantage when moving tree trunks but can be a handicap when I prop up the bar.”
