Yes it’s small and hidden, but easily feels the most authentic of almost any pub I’ve been in. Very few tourists... soak up the ambiance. Get there fairly early to get in the door, or plan on standing in the alley- which is also fine.

Hi Susan, some pubs allow under 18's in. As we here at Ye Olde Mitre are so small without a kitchen we are over 18's only. Many thanks
