The Smith’s Arms – reputedly England’s smallest pub
The story goes that King Charles II stopped in Godmanstone and asked at the blacksmith's forge for a drink. The blacksmith responded that he had no licence to sell alcohol. "From now on, you have a licence to sell beer and porter," said the King.

As you will see by looking at SY6697 : The former Smiths Arms, at 3 March 2007 it was no more.
