The Mitre Inn at Sandford Orcas

Cheryl and Allen welcome you to the Mitre Inn at Sandford Orcas in North-West Dorset to which they have just purchased the freehold.

The Mitre Inn is now a FREE HOUSE. Watch this space for the changes they intend to make - certainly to the choice of beers and ciders.



Built in 1851 this pub has kept its rustic charm - with flag stone floors throughout, cosy log burners warm this stone built property in the winter and great views from the terraced garden across the valley in the summer.

The Mitre Inn is a modest hostelry with an emphasis on enjoyment, good local food, much from our own local garden, traditionally cooked food, with some unusual twists. We have three real ales on hand pump which come mainly from the West Country, although brews from the east coast Kent and Yorkshire do make appearances. We have comfortable seating aside the bar or more formal seating in our dining room, which can be reserved for private functions, seating approximately 40. Occasional theme nights are arranged throughout the year as are open mic nights - further details in the What's On section. We have a lovely garden to relax in and enjoy the peace and country views.

With Autumn sneeking up we will be lighting the wood burners where you can warm your toes and snuggle up in great company..

This is a Dog Friendly Inn

We have two dogs in-house - Finlay is joined by his daughter, Freya. Yes, she really is his daughter - Finlay has a very friendly relationship with Molly, a black labrador, which resulted in a gorgeous litter of black and gold goldadores! We welcome well behaved visiting dogs if they keep their owners under control too. A watering point can always be found at the front door and in the garden.

Family Friendly Garden

Our popular garden is elevated and sits out front just above the car-park. There are 2 tables down at ground level for people with restricted mobility - but make it to the top of the garden and you are blessed with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. You will also find The Mitre's vegetable patch up here!
