Here at The Mitre, we pride ourselves on offering the finest ale and food, from sourcing local ingredients to bespoke spirits and our unique blend of coffee perfected by Melitta.

We only use the finest quality of coffee beans to ensure our customers receive a great tasting coffee in every cup. Whether you’re calling in at The Mitre for a pit stop before heading into Harrogate or unwinding after a long day in Knaresborough, make sure you sample a cup of our Melitta coffee, ranging from a flat white to a double espresso and even liqueur coffee.


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, there is the perfect atmosphere for everyone. All of our high quality and home-cooked food is inspired by local and seasonal produce and is freshly prepared on site.
