Reviewed January 20, 2013

If you like good ale and a hearty plate of food , this is the place for you. Mon-Fri they do a great deal on food for £8 which includes a pint, The staff are friendly and helpful and you are not far from Waverley Station.

Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Bad pub food -- all frozen reheated tasteless, etc -- overpriced, low qual service -- we had three different servers and none were timely or attentive -- really not worth it.

“Excellent service despite being very busy”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We returned to town late and were looking for food when we were referred to The Mitre by a local gentleman. There was live music playing in the front so we opted for a table in the back. Despite being very busy the waiter was excellent and took the time to explain different whiskeys and beers. Loved it!

“Great food, great staff.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Stumbled in here as we were hungry and nothing was planned. We found ourselves a delightful place to eat and if we were not at the end of our vacation we would most certainly have been back for more. The menu is quite varied and each of our selections was excellent. The staff were most helpful when it came to choosing ales and spirits. They had a power outage towards the end of our visit but still managed to accommodate our needs.
