The Mitre was situated on the SE corner of Hatfields and Isabella St (this part of Hatfields used to be the Broadwall - No 90 and later No 117 after another rearrangement).
Built around the mid 1700s. A William Rees was the licensee from about 1824 to 1832. The pub was solely supplied by the Anchor Brewery in Southwark but the only beer they made at the time was a porter. As the Mitre was just south of Blackfriar's Bridge, it was the site of many inquests into the deaths of people jumping off the bridge.
The Mitre was rebuilt about 1880. It featured under its own name in the TV series and movie For The Love of Ada in the early 1970s. Rundown and neglected, it was finally demolished in 2003
