I had Peri Peri Chicken Skewers, very tasty, others had Burgers and chips, chicken and steak combo, a veggie meal, all enjoyed them. Three had pancakes... More

Went here for a chat up with some friends and a bite to eat. The atmosphere was quiet enough for us to be able to talk with each other but at a good level to keep the mood uplifted. The food was great for the price and the service was excellent and friendly, thanks for the great service Yvette.

Having eaten and drunk at many Weatherspoon's around the country, which at best I would describe as average, it's always a pleasure to return to 'The Commercial' which is managed to a high standard. Took a friend for a beer and a steak Bank Holiday Monday, great quality, service, (thanks Yvette),and value.

Yes its Wetherspoons but it really has been a great addition to Sowerby Bridge. It has great decor relating to the local area and obviously is cheap for drinks. The food is as you would expect from them good, nothing outstanding but tasty for the money you pay as you won't get anything much cheaper than here. Certainly worth a... More

My daughter and myself were staying in the area for a family funeral and on a chilly wet May evening after a long journey we needed to find food fast. We had been recommended to go to a specific restaurant but it was too early for it to be open, so we went to the Weatherspoons Commercial instead and couldn't... More

Friendly atmosphere and clean surroundings. Prompt service and value for money. There were five in our party and each ordered something different. All five meals were tasty and nicely presented and we had no complaints at all. My steak was cooked exactly as requested. I would certainly return.
