The familiar dark wood look, with stripped floor, chandeliers and use of leather seating has been imported here, and it doesn't work too badly. There's still a good sized beer garden out the back which is great on a summer day, and the food menu looks to be quite good.
The ales on tap on a June 2008 visit were Black Sheep Bitter (£2.85), Bombardier and Spitfire. They've introduced a tasting menu as well for the beers, and will serve in one-third pints for £1.10 (lagers) and £1.30 (specialty beers). A tray of six thirds is available for £7. As you'd expect with this kind of refit, they also have a decent wine list, and all bottles are £10 on Tuesdays.
Food is served noon-10pm Monday to Thursday, to 11pm on Friday and Saturday, and until 9:30pm on Sunday.
There's a pub quiz advertised on Mondays at 8pm.
The Commercial was the South East London CAMRA Pub of the Season in Winter 2008/2009.
