I had a $14 Marsh Burger and chips which was delicious. I also stumbled upon the Commercial during happy hour. At $3 a middy of any beer, I had a full belly and a pleasant evening.

We needed to eat and picked this pub. I bit of a rabbit warren to get through to dining area. Carpet looks like it has a hard life and overall the place is a bit tired and needs some work. Ordered our meals and drinks. Meal arrived and value for money was great, plenty of food and tasted good. Staff... More

We went here for a family meal and all had the chicken kiev. Big mistake, the garlic in the kiev was just a big clump.Was tempted to leave my meal.I must say they have a great variety of food and it's well priced. Serving sizes are generous.

our first stop is always the Commercial (the Mersh) hotel for Scallops and Chips. Unfortunately due to delayed flights we had to wait 2 days until we got there. Oh boy is the wait worth it. Fresh Tasmanian Scallops. I chose crumbed. So yummy. All the meals seemed reasonably priced, the family also tried the lamb shanks and the parmies... More

Recommended by one of the friendly locals drinking there. We could have shared a pizza they were huge! But i got the seafood pasta and that was... More

We have had other things there though and all have been well cooked with a generous serve. Prices are realistic and they have different daily specials. Service ranges between good and excellent depending who... More

We dined with a large group midweek. I couldn't believe the menu choices in several large boards around the walls. There were daily $15 specials which many of us tried and recommended. I had the Flathead with salad which was superb. My partner had the Hawaiian schnitzel which he really enjoyed. The staff were friendly and for a large group... More
