Down by the river in Hammersmith you’ll find The Dove, a charming 17th century pub tucked away down a tiny alley is supposed to have Britain’s tiniest public bar in at a cosy 4 ft. 2ins wide by 7ft. 10ins long. Its other claim to fame is that former regular Scottish Poet James Thomson who lived upstairs, wrote ‘Rule, Brittania!’ in the bar. If you look around the pub you’ll find the music sheets framed on the wall. This pub also became a drinking hole for Ernest Hemingway, Alec Guinness who apparently only drank Guinness beer, and Dylan Thomas.
