People of Shepreth transformed their red telephone box into a pub in the hope of claiming it to be the world’s smallest pub in the Guinness World Records. The hope of the people was dashed away when the record-keepers barred their entry.
The officials at Guinness World Records have notified that the 3x3ft telephone box failed to match the guidelines as it has to obtain a license and should be opened for standard hours. Therefore, the Whisky Bar in Graubunden, Switzerland, maintains the position of the smallest whiskey bar which has a floor area of 91.82 feet.
The Dog and Bone pub, in the three-feet (90-centimetre) square ex-phone box, was set up for just one night. It was established to secure the village pub, The Plough, which has been closed and there is a restaurant now instead of the pub.
The people of Shepreth have been participating in the campaign to keep the village pub’ The Plough’ alive. The beer was given and donations were accepted.
Richard Handford, a helper in Save the Plough campaign, stated that the aim was to enter the phone box alehouse in the Guinness Book of Records. "It's a bitter blow to discover that we won't be record breakers. Pity The Plough's not open - we could drown our sorrows", he said.
