Situated snugly on leafy Holland Park Avenue, The Mitre provides a warm welcome for locals and visitors to London alike. Our menu is based on seasonal British dishes with global influences and is complimented by a comprehensive list of fine wines, a wide range of cask ales and a small, but perfectly formed, cocktail list. Lying neatly between Holland Park and Notting Hill tube stations we are well positioned for easy access to the West End as well as being ideally placed as a stop off point to or from the world famous Portobello Market

The person who welcomed us was disappointed that we did not want to sit in the way to the toilet, with a view of the bar of dirty glasses ... We got our drinks at the end of our meal!
We are regular customers and we never experienced such a poor service.

Hi Maggie, I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Unfortunately, we were fully booked on Saturday, so it may have been difficult to switch which table you was allocated, and the table you describe is some of our guests' favourite, as it's one of the quieter tables in the pub. However, all I can do is apologise over the wait for drinks. I'll address it with the team and try to find out what went wrong. Kind regards, The Mitre

Booked for 90 min slot was told to drink up after 60.

Decided to leave earlier than we expected, shame nice place but wont be back

The Mitre
Responded on 31 May 2021

Hi, I'm really sorry to hear that. The only time we should be giving less than the standard time slots is if we told you when booking (if we're squeezing you in) or if you are late, so we still need the table back an hour and a half after your original booking time. If neither of these was the case, all I can do is apologise. We'd love to see you again, and hope you'll get in touch at info@themitrew11.co.uk so we can discuss this further.

Overall we had a nice time, food was good, atmosphere was nice as usual. But was disappointed that we haven't been informed before ordered a bottle of wine that we only had about 15 minutes to stay. I know it's hard to keep on truck on time etc especially when it's busy, but would have appreciated to either not let us order a bottle or give us a temporary table outside or somewhere else to finish the wine. The waitress tried to sort this but still I felt like a teenager walking home with a half a bottle of wine.. The pub is nice, recommend it and I hope they will sort out their booking / ordering system to avoid this inconvenience

Hi, Thanks for the lovely review, and thank you so much for your feedback on our booking system. We're looking to put a system in place which should help reduce or avoid this in future! All I can do is offer my sincere apologies that it happened to you. I'm glad to hear it didn't ruin an overwise enjoyable visit though. Kind regards, The Mitre

Lovely front of house staff, who called to tell me prior to my arrival that a mistake had been made and my outdoor reservation had been double booked. A window seat was the alternative and it was not too bad. Very grateful for the ore-warning. The table staff were lovely, pub was clean and felt safe - a lovely pub to visit.

The food (see below) was substandard):
1. Roast Lamb - full of fat and cutlery served was not man-enough to easily cut in to the meat.
2. Avocado on sourdough toast with poached egg - served cold and was insipid
3. Lovely location.

Hi Cliff, Apologies that your visit wasn't up to our normal standard. Our Lamb and avocado toast dishes are two of our most popular dishes, so I'm not sure what went wrong on your visit. I also have to admit I don't fully understand what you mean by cutlery being "not man enough"? Kind regards, The Mitre

I chose the pie as my main course (liver pate starter). It was disappointing - long on thick pastry, which dominated the pie. The vegetables were OK, though I'm not certain the mash had had contact with an actual potato in the kitchen. But as I've commented, the service was good, and we had a pleasant evening

Hi Nigel, Thank you for your review. I'll be sure to pass your feedback on to the chef, but can promise you that our mash is made in house, I'm glad to hear that the fantastic service somewhat made up for the disappointing pie, and hope we'll see you again soon. Kind regards, The Mitre

Excellent service.
Food, given its price, was so-so. If it had been priced a bit more economically it would have been 4*; give the price, I thought 3*.
Coming out of lockdown I found the place a bit noisy but I am out of practice. Younger people prefer a buzzy atmosphere.

We have had lunch at the Mitre at outside tables 3 times recently and found the food and service to be good (4 star). But we took friends for lunch on Friday and found the food to have deteriorated significantly and the service was also poor. The restaurant was less than half filled but it took 40 minutes for our lunch to arrive. I had booked online but when we arrived they could not find my booking. We will not return.

After booking a table at 9pm we were told when we got there that the last orders were at 9:30pm.
For the future I feel that this is something that should be told to the customer when they book a table. If I had known prior I would have booked a table for earlier or at least informed my guests as one had traveled across London for a Saturday evening get together.

Hi Emma, Due to the Covid restrictions limiting us to outside tables, we only had a licence until 10pm when you visited. However our opening hours were clearly listed on Open Table, Google and on our own website, and are on display outside the pub. From tomorrow we're able to welcome guests inside, so next Saturday we'll be able to keep the bar open until midnight. We hope to see you again soon, now this is the case.

We went on a busy day with outdoor seating only and were a bit early, but the staff worked hard to get us seated. A good selection of lagers and beers and our drinks arrived quickly.
It was noisy sitting on the roadside outside but probably noisier than usual as it was a Saturday.
The lunch menu looked good so we both chose something from that but were told it wasn’t available - something to do with the suppliers.
I ordered the soft shell crab and my partner had the vegan burger. The crab turned out to be tempura crab even though it wasn’t called that on the menu otherwise I wouldn’t have ordered it. It was horrible and I didn’t eat it. I just ended up having a couple of spoonfuls of avocado.
To be fair, after we complained when we got the bill it was taken off with no arguments.
My partner’s vegan burger he’d rate as average.

The Mitre
Responded on 16 May 2021

Hi Janet, I'm sorry to hear the experience wasn't of the standard we usually expect. Unfortunately we are based on a very busy street. As of tomorrow, our inside is open to the public again. I hope we get to see you again, in a nicer setting! Our Tempura Soft Shell Crab is labelled as such on the menu. Perhaps there was a misprint, in which case all I can do is apologise. I'm glad to hear that the team promptly refunded it though. Kind regards, The Mitre Management Team
