Bucking Fastard left this review about Ye Olde Mitre

An iconic pub tucked down an alley between Hatton Garden and Ely Place,it's difficult to find but a joy once you do.
There has been a pub on site since 1546 but the current building is Georgian and is full of nationally important CAMRA listings.The bar nearest Ely Place is the smaller,with more a public bar feel despite being named as a lounge.There are a few benches,low tables and bar stools while the fireplace has a coal affect gas fire.Ceilings covered with whisky water jugs in both lounges.Lots of wood panelling and obscured glass in the windows with the enclosed cherry tree trunk being the boundary of the Bishop of Ely's land.
The rear lounge is larger,square with some bench seating,fine carved wooden chairs around the periphery and a central oval table with stools.This carpeted room is more opulent and the lighting more classic.There is a charming side snug with one large table called Ye Closet,while up a very steep stairway is the Bishops Room,which can be hired,but is an overflow drinking area otherwise with high tables and drinking shelves but fewer features.Naturally a lot of punters spill out into the narrow alley ways which help relieve any internal crush when busy.
Owned by Fullers but offering genuine guest ales the line up on my visit was Fullers London Pride,Adnams Broadside,Deuchars IPA,a real cider,Pig & Porter Percy Percy (a Green Hop Dubbel 6%),Tiny Rebel Stay Puft (NBSS 4.5) with a clip for Dark Star APA reversed.Thats a very decent line up and it's rightly in the 2020 GBG.
This is a proper boozer with the only food items being nuts or toasted snacks,and with a choice of superb guests ales,this pub is now a must visit .Beware of the weekend closure.It's one of the great London pubs,a timeless classic.

a very cosy little pub hidden away... well as hidden as it is possible to be in central London. the Fullers corporate touch is all over it though and the Americans within quickly started to grate on me. The waitress got irritated when I had to reorder as my half was brought out as a pint... i’m being economical because of your prices, don’t forget that!

Fullers pub tucked away down a narrow alleyway. A characterful old interior with some guest beers served.
