The team at Meantime have opened Britain’s smallest pub in Greenwich, London, in collaboration with six craftspeople from across the UK. The ‘Make Time For It’ measures just 6ft x 8ft – that’s smaller than a snooker table, folks, and this coziest of pubs can seat just three people at a time.
The space has been designed in partnership with six of the country’s finest craftspeople as part of Meantime’s Make Time For It campaign. This tiny space is decked-out with hops-inspired wallpaper designed by Bespoke Atelier, Glasgow, with a neon installation by Neoncraft, Leeds, and bespoke gilded mirror pub sign by Ged Palmer.
Patrons can pull up the bar stool crafted from recycled brewing waste by furniture designers Lazerian, Manchester, and hand their phone over to the landlord (sporting a brewing-inspired waistcoat by Brighton Tailor Gresham Blake) to enjoy a free pint of Meantime from hand-blown pint glasses from Bristol Blue Glass with no digital distractions.
Along with Meantime classics London Lager and London Pale Ale, guests will have the chance to try the six limited edition Make Time For It beers brewed in collaboration with the six craftspeople.
Hop Back (Manchester): A classic mild beer with a spiced berry aroma for a modern twist
Maison Hop (Glasgow): A rich and smoky cognac barrel-aged black ale with hints of smooth vanilla.
Time to Time (Leeds): A Saison de Nuit that will light up your taste buds with vibrant fruit flavours.
Hourglass (Bristol): Crisp, dry pilsner with fresh pressed apple notes inspired by cider. The sugars from the fermentation come from a blend of malt and apple juice, giving a fruity twist to a classic dry pilsner.
The Tweedster (Brighton): Passionfruit wheat beer packed full of punchy, vibrant fruit flavours, well balanced against a beautiful wheat beer backbone.
Luminor (London): a hoppy pale ale with zesty citrus flavours from the wild Sussex Hop.
