The Micro Pig Bar, one of the newest venues in the area could well be a record-breaker too.
They wanted to provide the village with a replacement pub after the previous one closed down some years earlier.
Licensee Geneva Low is pursuing the record for the smallest pub in the world, she said;
“From what we can find, the record is currently held by The Signal Box at 64 sq.ft., and we’re only 9ft x 7ft, so we are definitely smaller.”
“Everyone likes the buzz of a village pub and at only 63 sq.ft., ours is always busy!”, commented Wayne.
“Seriously though, we have managed to provide a genuine local for the people of Tickton and we’re proud of that. We have a steady stream of regulars and lots of passing trade too, so ‘mission accomplished’… a pub back on the main street where it belongs.”
This compact, but perfectly formed hostelry poured its first drink in October 2018 and hasn’t stopped since.
As well as adding a small beer garden, free food offerings and occasional live music, The Micro Pig has certainly made itself at home in this quaint rural location. Let’s now see if it makes it into the Guinness World Records.
As this father-daughter team summed up: “We might only be tiny, but we have a very big welcome and now we might be a record-breaker too. How brilliant is that for Tickton… for everyone!”
