Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Mitre Bar

Attractive Nicholson's pub at the top end of the less-busy lower half of the Royal Mile, so quite well placed without being overrun. Elongated, and quite dark, interior with traditional furniture and decor under a high ceiling. General seating around the L-shaped bar at the front, with dining areas further back. Two Stewart Brewing beers - Jack Black and 80/- (£4.85) - and Black Sheep's seasonal Blitzen available from the eight handpumps in addition to the 'house' NPA.

Impressive Nicholsons Pub - but they do need to learn that less is more! Like the Haymarket, a quite overwhelming array of pumps greets on arrival.

Lia Fail was in very good condition - so no complaints.

A slightly more chainy feel than the impressive boozer deserves.

Old Boots left this review about The Mitre Bar

A Nicholson’s house with very high and impressive ceilings, an almost as impressive counter and bar-back and some decent etched glass here and there at the front. Six pulls, one with Nicholson's Pale Ale the others with a selection of Scots beers dominated by Caledonian with Harviestoun a close second and up to Nicholson's middling to good quality. A bit of a mix of designers Victorian furniture and decor-wise it's photos of old Edinburgh here, a bookcase there, embellished with both low leather and tall seating which is a bit high for some of the older customers. On the Royal Mile but not hugely over the top.
