Another visit and another excellent lunch. Fish pie this time and very tasty it was too. I can also recommend the fish and chips, one of the best in the area. The landlord is always exceedingly helpful. Good place for a traditional pub lunch.

It was a nice local place with a few of the Beys at the bar. They recommended a few bits on the menu so i went for the pie. It was a good pie followed by some Rattler on tap.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your very positive feedback. We have a great locals' bar and we are glad that you enjoyed their company as well as our food. Homemade steak & Cornish ale pie with a pint of Cornish Rattler sounds just "ansom" to us too; excellent choice. More

I stumbled upon the Commercial almost by accident, as it was the first building on my right as I entered the square at St Just. So I went inside. There is a lovely little restaurant on the right hand side as you go in, with a fire at the bar end and two low comfortable sofas. Everything about the dining... More

This restaurant is outstanding. Excellent meals, spotlessly clean, modern decor dining room and with helpful and friendly staff. The menu is exciting and we had to visit a second time as the food is cooked to perfection. Excellent value too. We look forward to visiting your restaurant again when we visit beautiful Cornwall next year.

Whilst visiting St Just during the festive season we were lucky enough to enjoy two very pleasant meals in the restaurant.

Friday night pie and pint - but a nice twist as you get choice of beef and ale pie or fish pie with mash - also you have choice to have a glass of wine which our ladies all did- very good value and very tasty food.

A very dependable pub for good food and service. Always very happy to provide exactly what the customer wants. Would recommend this to anyone for good food at a sensible price. This visit I had the scallops as a starter and they were cooked perfectly.
