  the Mitre
by BerniShand

across the road from Tron Kirk on the Royal Mile is the Mitre
its a friendly pub, with a nice atmosphere and the food is very good

the pub was designed by P L Henderson in 1901 and is built on the site of the residence built in 1615 for John Spottiswood, Bishop of St Andrew, which was destroyed in 1814

of course it has a ghost, everywhere in Edinburgh has a ghost it seems, but the one here is said to be Bishop John himself

Favorite Dish: the portions were generous and the food was tasty, this isnt haute cuisine, but its good food, just what you need to sustain you through the sightseeing Edinburgh has to offer
