SquareMeal Review of The Mitre

This large modern gastropub gets absolutely packed at weekend lunchtimes, when locals fight for space on the traffic-ridden pavement terrace & in the sizeable dining area beyond. Centred around a busy open kitchen & stainless-steel bar, the interior feels slightly industrial, but its curious mix of recycled church pews & bentwood chairs, worn leather sofas & funky lampshades helps to soften the look. Food is more straightforward – think Sunday roasts, antipasti snack platters or beer-battered cod with chunky chips & tartare sauce. The back bar is as crowded as the rest of the pub, thanks to its stock of bottled & draught lagers, imaginative soft drinks & respectable wines, including Châteauneuf-du-Pape at just £21.45 a bottle.

Alice . 13 October 2014

I will not be recommending this restaurant to anyone. To start, only one of our party received his meal, and I received my side. 25 minutes later, the rest of our mains appeared - lukewarm at best - by which point the first dinner and my side were completely cold. We were promised another main and side; the side never arrived. Perhaps even worse, the staff were utterly unhelpful. Choosing to huddle behind the bar and avoid our eye contact, it took 3 attempts of going up to the bar before the manager came to see us. At £15 per head for cold, average food and awful service this is unacceptable.
