The Mitre offers sumptuous food, fine hand-pulled real ales and luxurious accommodation.

Situated at the top of Water Bag Bank (adjacent to St Johns Church and Knaresborough railway station) The Mitre benefits from superb views, is only 10-minutes drive from the centre of the spa town of Harrogate and is the perfect place to meet, relax and enjoy yourself.


Wining and dining at The Mitre is a relaxing and enjoyable experience, with our full menu and specials available either in the informal atmosphere of our bar area, or in the comfortable and pleasant Dining room. All of our food is freshly sourced and prepared on the premises. For your function or meeting, our Chef can  create bespoke menus or buffets upon request. High quality, home-cooked food is served in our lounge bar and dining room.


The Mitre has a large Lounge Bar with ample seating, air-conditioning and an extensive choice of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including eight cask conditioned ales. It’s the ideal place to meet up with friends and colleagues in traditional surroundings with a modern twist.

Bar food is served in here and consists of a comprehensive menu, specials board and an excellent range of bar meals all freshly made on the premises.

The Mitre also has a large Dining Room which is the ideal place to hold business meetings, organise private celebrations/gatherings and being close to the main bar means that refreshments are always close to hand.

We are situated next to St Johns church in the centre of town (adjacent to the railway station).  This makes The Mitre the perfect venue for hosting your wedding reception, holding a business meeting or just having a celebration.

We have two different function areas which can be set up to suit your specific requirements. The upstairs  dining room is well- suited for small parties or business meetings and being close to the Lounge Bar, refreshments are always on hand.

The Downstairs Function Bar is available for functions. Here we can offer tailor-made buffets, bespoke functions and guarantee privacy for your gathering. For further information on the use of either of our function rooms, please give us a call on 01423 868948 for costings and to discuss availability.

A marble tiled floor and contemporary lighting create an ambience perfect for a variety of uses. It is ideal for your private function, being situated well away from the main bar, but with access to the outdoor terrace and a private bar for your exclusive use.
