Standing on the site of two former inns, the pub has been known as the Mitre since 1881. The last vestiges of its former ale-house look were swept away during a refurbishment in 2011 and the interior now has a smart, contemporary style. The extended down-steps section is primarily for dining and full table service is available. A side door leads onto a narrow alleyway, Blackmoor Head Yard, across which is the neighbouring Baron of Beef pub. The Mitre is now part of the Nicholson's chain and the St Austell beer is their Pale Ale. Guests may be from small breweries.
