Watch: Why Meantime Brewing opened Britain's smallest pub

The pop-up pub was the grand finale of the brand's six-month, country-touring, craft-making collaborative campaign, "Make Time For It".

The pub, which measured 6ft by 8ft – smaller than the footprint of a snooker table – had space to accommodate just two people at a time and is furnished with pieces of work by craftsmen from across the country.

"We take six weeks to brew our beer," explained Rich Myers, Meantime’s marketing director. "We wanted to challenge six craftsmen from across the country to take that same six weeks to create an element of our pop-up bar."

After surrendering their phones at the door in a bid to eliminate distractions, guests were offered a free beverage of their choice whilst having the opportunity to take in the specially produced crafts. Visitors could also walk away with a bespoke personalised bottle of Pale Ale.

The "Make Time For It" pub was open in Greenwich’s Peninsula Square on 30th October.
