The Mitre is a pub on the High Street section of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.

“In 1615, the site of our tavern was occupied by a fine tenement that was owned by John Spottiswood, then Bishop of St Andrews. The tenement burned down in 1814 and was replaced by The Mitre Bar, a nod to the bishop’s headgear. Legend has it that the bishop’s throne is buried under what is now the bar area. Some say his spirit still walks the pub.”
