We have just spent our fifth consecutive fringe weekend in Edinburgh & have to say we love the Mitre. Yes, its on the mile & so it is often very busy. Yes the menu is a predictable pub menu - but it is delivered with a smile & in an edible condition - which is more than I can say for some of the rip off food I have recieved elsewhere in the city.

The atmosphere is nice, all the staff friendly and happy to advise on beer choices, even to our friends from over the pond. And the real piece de resistance is the selection of Whisky at extremely reasonable prices allowing a real tour for the tastebuds.

We come back every year.

Excellent food at reasonable prices, friendly bar staff (unlike one particular guy at the Last Drop)and a nice relaxed atmosphere. We went in here quite a lot due to the fact it serves Gallo Rose wine at just over £8 a bottle which is very reasonable for a bar. All my ratings would have been 5 had it not been for the fact that the bitter and cider was soooooo expensive! (slightly puzzling seeing as how everything else was ok) Definitely worth a visit though.

I have eaten twice in this pub over the last month and the food has been super. Ok,the kitchen is not too big so a lot of the food is "pub grub" but do try their char-grilled sirlon steaks. It was cooked to perfection and sooooo tender.For £7.50 including veg. etc. it would put the over-priced places to shame. As I am from Edinburgh I feel that I can honestly make a comparison! The staff were also very friendly. Look forward to going back and shall certainly send all my guests(I own a guest-house in Edinburgh)to this place.

Love this wee bar, and when my folks come for a visit they always want me to take them there cos they were so impressed! Ok, so it's been slightly turned into one of those chain-type pubs & has lost a bit of its character, but the foods always spot on & the staff are nice. It's also really cosy. Seems to attract grumpy looking businessmen midweek though!

I think the Mitre is one of the best pubs I have been to in Edinburgh. It is a really nice building inside and out, the food and drink is great and at a reasonable price. There is usually a good mix of people and in the summer, if you are quick enough, you can get a seat out in the sun and watch life go by!

Wow, so many people here don't mind being ripped off. I guess that is the difference between tourists and residents. Resident become resentful of the constant gouging performed by these pubs. Food was ok, nothing to good, but heh, were in Scotland. Beers were pricey. Go down to cowgate for good beers. However, if you idea of character is some crappy old stuff hanging on the walls, and you don't mind paying through the nose, this place is for you!.

We, a group of 8 German ladies between 47 and 80, were having a real good time at your place (May 5, 2006)! Thanks for the friendly service, the typically Scottish atmospere and the excellent pub food!

A classic edinburgh pub. Nicely priced pints and decent fare from the kitchen. Cozy restaurant in back.
