This place is such a gem! Really cosy and love the decor. Toilets are very clean. Has plenty of space too with an upstairs. Yet to try the food!

Quirkiest and friendliest pub I've been to in ages. Any pub that serves real ale, has good cheap pizza and plays Bob Dylan is fine by me. Service was gret as well.

Sat upstairs which was nice and comfy, calmer than down stairs. Got the skinny processco which really wasnt great especially for £30. Ordered the pizza with buffalo mozerella and did not have high expectations. However it was so lovely. Will go back again and try...More

Recently I was walking home and it started POURING with rain. I was absolutely soaked and took refuge in The Commercial Tavern. The bar tender just gave me a cup of tea as he could see I looked like a drowned rat. I just really...More

This may get very busy at night but all my daytime visits have been most civilised with plenty of space, varied clientele and friendly, helpful staff.

This is a stylish bar in shabby chic style with some nice touches. The pizza we had was excellent and great value for London. We ate upstairs with a good window view and some interesting interior design flourishes.

Surprisingly decent and cheap pizza in a chill pub atmosphere. Popped by here this afternoon and was impressed with the relaxed vibe and eclectic interior design. I ordered the courgette pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, rocket and goat's cheese. I was pleasantly surprised at how...More

As other reviewers have said, the bar staff act like you are doing them a favour and it's massively over priced for what they offer. Pizzas are bad and pints are overpriced. DO NOT COME HERE.

Not sure how much they spent on the fit out but a few lampshades from grandmas living room and a few days later you have a pub. A couple of real ales on tap and good prices for Shoreditch. Mixed crowd but give the place...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
