Our group of 10 friends had a hard time finding a place to eat after 2pm. The Commercial Inn offered food all afternoon. The young woman who served us was nice and efficient but above all the food was really good. I shared a crab salad and the trio of fishes which was perfectly cooked and the sauce was delicious.

My husband and I dined here yesterday (Saturday) and must say the girl who served us was outstanding. She was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. A true asset to your establishment (wish we caught her name). The food was good too and would highly recommend to future customers

Whilst this is not the best value restaurant, it offers a great menu with many locally-caught produce.

Thank you for leaving us such a positive review. It sounds as though the waitresses had the central heating on too high a setting in the Lounge dining room. Please feel free to mention if you ever return to us since the turn of a dial can easily and quickly adjust the heating in this room. We are delighted that... More

Our B&B hostess recommended the Kings Arms but, no surprise, it was booked out so we walked across the road to The Commercial. There are two sizeable dining areas and we enjoyed our first meal, and the service, so much we went back the next night. The food is tasty, nicely cooked, the menu choices are varied and we didn't...

We tried here after the Kings Arms a couple of days before, unfortunate really as it didn't really turn out well. We sat in the conservatory where the wifi didn't work (password was fine, just wouldn't connect) and they had a couple of the chain beers (Doombar and The Atlantic) - starter was good enough, I had the scallops and...

On holiday for a week in St Just and visited The Commercial 3 times. Sunday lunch was fabulous, well cooked and well presented and very tasty. Mid week lunch was equally good and an evening meal one night was great! The food is excellent, service is great and prices are very reasonable. Thoroughly recommended!
