Abbot's Mitre

The Abbot's Mitre public house (left-hand panel)
Mike Gee
The public house on Village Street was known as the New Inn until 1969, when it was renamed the Abbot’s Mitre. The name may have been chosen as a historical reference to ancient Wherwell Abbey. The lighthearted theory is that a visiting Abbot threw his Mitre on the floor of the inn on the Common because he took exception to the service!
