Weymouth Navy Veteran Named UKs Best Pub Shed Winner


We have often explored the many purposes that a garden log cabin can be put to, from home offices, gyms, recording studios, to private sanctuaries. But one recurring theme for garden rooms, log cabins, and sheds over the years has been to convert them into your very own pub.

The Dorset Echo reports that Royal Navy veteran Iain Weetman’s homemade bar, in Weymouth, Dorset, has been crowned the UK’s best shed pub in a national competition.

Log Cabin On A Budget

Weety's Bar features brass beer taps, a dartboard, TV and walls packed with memorabilia in the style of traditional British pubs. Iain created the 169 sq ft garden boozer in 2010 and started with the bar pumps used on the ship he served on, HMS Ark Royal before it was scrapped.

The Garden Inn in Rowley, West Midlands, and O'Sullivan's in Bishop Auckland, Durham, finished runners-up.

The UK Pub Shed of the Year, which had been organised by Pub Shed Radio and pub signage company Two Fat Blokes, was decided by a public vote.

Former aircraft engineer Iain said it felt ‘fantastic’ to have won, and said he designed everything himself and received donations from nearby pubs to help him along the way.

“With some basic garden tools and a bit of wood you can knock up a decent little bar,” he added.

Iain, who spends evenings enjoying Weety’s Bar with friends, said that she pub conversions had become a huge hobby for many during recent times, as people looked for ways to enjoy a drink out of the home during the pandemic.
