Lonely Planet review

A delightfully cosy historic pub, tucked away in a backstreet off Hatton Garden (look for a Fullers sign above a low archway on the left), Ye Olde Mitre was built for the servants of Ely Palace. There’s still a memento of Elizabeth I – the stump of a cherry tree around which she once danced.

There’s no music, so the rooms only echo to the sound of amiable chit-chat.
