We visited this pub after work one night, it's got a trendy, cool vibe. But if yr in need of a drink id go somewhere else, you'll die of thirst waiting for the bar staff to serve you!

One saving grace is that the manager seems switched ok when she's around. She gave me a free pint after her bar man successfully ignored me for ten mins standing right in front of him!

Used this pub as a meeting place before going down brick lane. Easy to find and nicely located. In the afternoon there is often a large group gather outside. It can get busy on Thursdays.

this quirkily decorated bar is a fantastic place to sit and relax and have a few drinks. the staff here are friendly and make you feel welcome. be sure to go upstairs on a bright afternoon to enjoy the amazing décor and friendly clientele. a great selection of drinks are on offer. definitely worth a visit and the very short walk from spitlafields and brick lane if you are looking for a place to unwind

Been going to the Commercial for a good few years. It has a good range of beers and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. The layout creates a nice intimate feel. The food is really good (burger). Good times.

Only went in to meet up with people, but enjoyed the short time I was in there. Cosy, shabby, stylish. The music playing gave the atmosphere a Boardwalk Empire feel. I would recommend.
