The Mitre Inn, Sandford Orcas
The Mitre Inn is situated in the small village of Sandford Orcas, just three and a half miles north of Sherborne, tucked in the rolling hills of the Dorset countryside. The pub was originally built in 1851 as a cider house but now as a freehouse, we sell beer and cider from local breweries such as Apex Brewery and Yeovil Ales.
The present owners have run the pub since 1992 and having purchased the pub in 2014 have completed extensive refurbishment, whilst still keeping the charm of the building. The owners Allen and Cheryl Page have now established two high standard letting rooms, boasting en- suite shower rooms. The rooms have received high reviews on booking.com and trip advisor. Allen and Cheryl have two wonderful dogs, Finlay and his daughter Freya. They will welcome you throughout your stay and whilst the pub is dog friendly, unfortunately we are unable to allow dogs to stay in the letting rooms.
In the Autumn/Winter there are 2 wood burning stoves making the bar and dining room a cosy place to relax.
In the Summer our garden provides an elevated position in which you can unwind taking in the peace and tranquility with views across the valley.
