Welcome to the Mitre

Nestled in the heart of the high street of the picturesque Market town of Shaftesbury in Dorset sits the charming Mitre. Exceptional views from our covered tiered terrace overlooking Melbury Hill and across the Blackmore Vale.

Dine in Shaftesbury

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

Six Nations Rugby

Sport is our thing, and we always go the whole nine yards. Rugby on our TV screens in the bar, great atmosphere and perfectly poured pints of Guinness (of course)

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.

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

Sundays are special. Locally sourced meat, buckets of gravy (well, at least two jugs) endless Yorkshire puddings and those nourishing winter veggies. End your week with an all-guns-blazing Sunday roast.

Watch the Euros in Shaftesbury

We’re ready and raring to host you for a hotly anticipated summer of football. Let us take care of your day and book a table at your favourite local (that’s us) to watch the UEFA EURO 2024™ in Dorset.
