I always bring friends to this little pub - friendly service, great choice, funky decor and historic site.. can't beat this. It does get completely crowded - but it's just lovely. Don't miss it - it's just at the beginning of Hatton Garden.

If you go to one pub in London, make Ye Olde Mitre! Built in 1546, they say Queen Elizabeth (THE FIRST!) drank here and danced around the cherry tree out front. The last hold-out of Catholics in this Protestant town, don't be surprised to see...More

Yes it’s small and hidden, but easily feels the most authentic of almost any pub I’ve been in. Very few tourists... soak up the ambiance. Get there fairly early to get in the door, or plan on standing in the alley- which is also fine.

Hi Susan, some pubs allow under 18's in. As we here at Ye Olde Mitre are so small without a kitchen we are over 18's only. Many thanks
