Dine With Us

We are proud of our British seasonal dishes and memorable Sunday Roasts here at The Mitre. Perfectly paired with a nice pint, glass of wine or one of our bespoke cocktails.

Welcome to The Mitre, Shaftesbury

Landlady Victoria and her team welcome you to the Mitre our much-loved traditional high-street pub nestled in the heart of the picturesque Market town of Shaftesbury, Dorset. Locally famous for our covered tiered outdoor terrace with stunning views overlooking Melbury Hill and across the Blackmore Vale. Just a stone’s throw away from the famous Gold hill featured in Ridley Scott’s Hovis advert.

You’ll love our pub. The bar is bustling, our pumps are primed with premium local ales, and cool craft-y beers, and we shake up a cracking cocktail too (if we do say so ourselves)

Head Chef Karol cooks up a storm, with his signature dishes, and perfectly cooked pub classics. We’re always making the most of seasonal ingredients, so you’ll be tucking into the freshest asparagus in Spring, the plumpest blackberries in Summer, gorging on game-y goodness in Autumn, and a riot of root veggies in the Winter.

Christmas is a cosy, super-indulgent time of year and we blooming love it. Make time to feast your eyes on our button-popping Christmas menu (spoiler alert; it’s jam-packed with all your festive favourites) and get your seasonal shindigs booked.

With open fires to huddle round and cosy nooks by the barrel-load, our pub is the perfect place to hunker down for a full-on plate of your favourite comfort foods this Winter.

The Perfect Sunday

A staple of the British diet, the Sunday roast brings warm memories of family time and helps unwind after a long walk in the Dorset countryside.
