“Great pub hidden away but beware, it's not open at weekends”
Review of Ye Olde Mitre

Ye Olde Mitre
Ranked #29 of 1,324 Nightlife in London
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The Mitre Pub was introduced to me by a work colleague and is one that we often go to on a Friday night after work. It’s nice to have it in available as a break from the mainstream Whetherspoons in the area and serves a great selection of ale. They also do pork pies with mustard as pub snacks. It can get a bit rammed within the outside corridor however the bar is often not as full as you might anticipate, so do pop your head in the door if you can’t find standing room outside. One to keep in your back pocket when a friend suggests trying ‘somewhere different’.

"Ye Olde Mitre" is probably the oldest Pub in the City of London. It is a tiny but nice place to have some pints. The toast Sandwiches are tasty!

Dating from 1546 ,this tiny 3 roomed pub is hidden in an alley that traverses Hatton Garden and Ely Place ,the latter a clue to the historical tie -in with what was the site of The Bishop of Ely's Palace ,used for attending the newly constituted court and Parliament. Only the marvellous Church of St.Etheldreda nearby is all that remains .
Award yourself a congratulatory drink just for finding it and marvel at it's uniqueness.
Friendly staff ,a fine selection of ales. Real,not faux history.
