Is this the smallest pub in the UK?

While pubs are closing across the country at an alarming rate there's been a dramatic growth of micropubs in the last decade. These small alternatives to pubs hark back to old ale houses, they're often just one room and dedicated to cask ale.

A new guide published this month catalogues how they're often to be found in unusual places like people's garden sheds or, as our reporter Nicola Stanbridge found, in the tiniest former cab office which fits just two customers, on the platform of a train station in Surrey.
