The Mitre Inn
This humble, traditional treasure lies along the Two Moors Way walking route. It’s a pub that seamlessly blends tradition with country comfort to create a welcoming atmosphere. This is a true local at heart – staff put names to faces; locals imbibe and fill the room with quiet chatter, and walkers rest up after a day spent exploring the moors. Well-behaved dogs are allowed in the bar if you’re stopping for a drink or a bite to eat. The long-standing team clearly cares about the place and it shows in the friendly service both first-timers and familiar faces receive. The inn is filled with interesting artefacts – 180-year-old church pews adorn the bar, and a baby grand piano sits in the snug. Once you’ve had a nose round, cast your eyes over the seasonal, ever-changing menu. Highlights include locally sourced chicken, free-range pork and beef from Exmoor, and vegan and veggie options are available, too. The Mitre Inn is the sort of bolthole you wish was your local.
