Description: A quintessential pub set in the rolling hills of the glorious Dorset countryside. No pool tables, no slot machines, no juke box - just a warm welcome, well kept beers, local cider and something on the menu boards for everyone to enjoy.

“We love the Mitre..!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you are looking for a genuine, traditional Country Pub then this is it! You could not find a landlord and landlady more welcoming and friendlier than Allan and Cheryl and it is so lovely to find a real pub that hasn't been messed about with. The ambience here is perfect, in the winter the cosy bar area with comfy armchairs and a roaring fire, in the summer the garden with fabulous views and the peace and quiet. Sheer Heaven! Food is traditional and home cooked, my husband says the ales are always spot on! You will not find a better Country Inn than this one, we love it!!

“a traditional country pub”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

the Mitre is the type of country pub we all so love to visit but so rarely find. The welcome from Cheryll and Allen is warm and genuine; the food is simple quality pub grub at its best. There are no set menus, every day is different with the options chalked up on the board. A fire roars much of the year and the bar area is one to linger in. In the summer the extensive beer garden gives beautiful views. The Mitre is in an exceptionally rustic and beautiful are of rolling countryside on the Dorset/Somerset border. Go to this pub, you will not regret it.
