Smallest pub in Notts
Let landlord Frank give you a guided tour of the smallest pub in Nottinghamshire.
The Beehive Inn, in Maplebeck near Newark, is reputedly the smallest pub in Nottinghamshire.
The premises, situated in a village with a population of 80, has been a public house for the last 200 years.

The present landlord, Frank Shelton, has been manning the pumps for the last 12.
He says that size has never been a problem.
Somehow they manage to accommodate a darts board, and in the summer drinkers pack out the beer garden.
The locals, some who've been regulars at public house for over 50 years, tell us that it used to lay claim to being the smallest pub in England prior to an extension the 1970s.
Know of a place (or person) in Notts that claims to be the biggest/ smallest/ highest/ loudest/ oldest...?
