Bit of a weird one this, it's a tearoom at the front with a fairly traditional taproom in the middle then a dining room at the back. There are four pulls on the counter generally serving safe nationally recognised beers although some interesting pump clips are among those on the opposite wall. Apparently there's an upstairs as well but I didn't check it out.

The Wig and Mitre is situated at the top of steep hill,so handy for a drink after walking up it.
We had been in this pub a few years back and thought it was the original Wig and Mitre,but it is not,with the original Wig and Mitre being next door.

Once inside this is quite a comfortable pub,the front area is smallish and square,shaped,there is comfy bench seating and a couple of normal tables and chairs,the bar is in the middle area of the pub,there are a few tall tables and stools in this area,the rear area is up a few steps,there are comfy bench seating and normal tables and chairs in this area.
There were four real ales on the bar,we had a drink of Tom Woods Lincolnshire Gold which went down very well,the other beers were Oakham JHB,Everards Tiger Bitter and Black Sheep.
We quite liked this pub,but it is expensive with our pint and a half costing £5.00.

A pub/restaurant situated between two streets and having an entrance off both. The rear entrance is somewhat plain - being in brick with a projecting upper window. The front entrance is 'posher', being in white, with a large sash window frontage and also having a projecting upper window. The interior is spread over a couple of floors, with a mezzanine level too. Really, it all feels set out for dining - the food being very good (but not cheap), as was the service. The ground floor is divided into two areas and is in white, brick and wood floor. The upper floor has its own bar and is in white and green. A general mix of old prints and pictures adorned the walls. I didnt see a TV, or hear any piped music. The place was really busy, mainly catering to the tourist's food needs, although a few people were in that were just drinking. Beer; Everard's Tiger, Black Sheep Bitter, Bateman's XB and a decent Hopback Cherry Diamond were on handpull. Overall, a happy enough stop-off, but not a place i could stay at all night.
