Ye Olde Mitre

Down a pint of ale where the Bishop of Ely's servants slept in 1546. 


Housed in a building dating back to 1546, this pub resides in what were once the servant’s quarters for the Bishop of Ely’s palace. Inside the dimly lit interior, patrons can view the remains of a cherry tree that Queen Elizabeth I and Sir Christopher Hatton allegedly danced around when it was used as a Maypole. The pub was expanded in 1782 before being remodeled internally in the 1930s, but still retains its historic charm. The menu sticks to the classic staples of meat pies and toasties, although curiously, refuses to put chips on the menu. Order up a pint and Mr. Barrick’s pickle and Stilton pork pie, which is baked in-house.
