Lord Craven craves an author on the last Sunday of each month

We’re delighted to host a new style literary event on the last Sunday of each month at our marvellous local pub The Mitre. Not only do we promise an exciting literary experience, your chance to meet an author close-up, but also a lovely drink, a splendid room, courtesy of Lord Craven, and, if you feel like it, excellent food to round off your Sunday.

The last Sunday of each month brings a treat: an author, sometimes well-known, at other times we’ll present a new find, who will read from his or her work, talks about writing, and is happy to answer all your questions.

Put this in your diary: 24 March, 28 April, 26 May, 30 June, 28 July, 29 September, 27 October, and 24 November.

24 March: Laura Del-Rivo about her novels The Furnished Room & Speedy and Queen Kong and new short stories
28 April: David Ayres about Top of the Sixties & his new novel
More authors will be announced shortly.

Actually, if you have a suggestion for an author to be featured, feel free to contact our publisher at

The Mitre                                                 The Mitre

The Mitre is a Grade II listed building which was built in the 1850’s. In those days the mews adjoining the pub contained stables and staff accommodation to serve the lords and ladies in the area. The Mitre has been used in many films and TV dramas, such as Woody Allen’s Match Point and the BBC drama The Edwardians. Another significant detail is that over the years a few staff members have seen the ghost of a murdered coach driver in the building.
