Escape the city, put your feet up and claim your own cosy corner at Herne Hill’s favourite local – The Commercial, now reopened following a complete refurbishment. Blending the relaxed vibe of nearby Dulwich Village and the party feel of Brixton with a modern British menu, extensive drinks collection and laid-back interiors, there’s plenty to love at The Commercial.
Located just opposite Herne Hill station and just around the corner from Brockwell Park, The Commercial is ideally placed for post-work pints and relaxing weekends. Step off the train and into the intimate pub filled with dark wood tables, cushion-laden banquettes and historic photos of the surrounding area.
Come summertime, grab a table on the courtyard at the back of the pub and kick back amongst the fresh plants and twinkling lights. It’s the perfect spot to share a crisp bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and a few light bites in the sunshine.
FORKS AT THE READY
Nothing starts the day quite like an amazing breakfast, washed down with a rich coffee. Classic eggs benedict; smoked salmon on toast with crushed avocado and feta; or luxurious smoked haddock kedgeree will keep you firing all day.
Door-step sandwiches and refreshing salads make the ideal lunch option. Choose from fillings like flat iron steak and cheddar; salt beef Reuben with sauerkraut and hot cheddar; or grilled aubergine and mozzarella. Alternatively, share small plates such as pan-fried king prawns and chorizo on toasted sourdough; or seared mackerel served with roast beets and horseradish cream.
More substantial mains – ideal for lunch or dinner – change seasonally, ranging from slow-roasted meats to lively salads. Cherry Orchard Farm pork sausages with spring onion mash and red wine jus; homemade chicken pot pie with roasted veggies; and seafood broth with trout, prawns and mussels with toasted bread all promise to satisfy any craving.
Make sure to save room for sweet treats such as Black Forest Eton Mess; warm chocolate brownie with hazelnut ice cream; and Chantilly cream filled profiteroles with caramel sauce.
On Sundays, gather over a roast with a choice of chicken, beef or pork belly, served with all the classic trimmings, while veggies can opt for a delicious butternut squash and nut roast. Add a DIY spiced Bloody Mary and get competitive over board games to make it the perfect end to the week.
CHEERS TO THAT
The Commercial’s eclectic drinks offering has as much personality as the food menu. Beers from across the world and an array of British Cask Marque accredited ales are available on tap including Kozel, and pub favourites. A carefully chosen wine collection will partner with any dish, while those looking for something more experimental can indulge in stylish seasonal cocktails. A dedicated Bulldog Gin menu, paired with Fentiman Tonics, will delight even the most demanding gin connoisseurs.
Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, special event or need a large outdoor space, The Commercial promises to make it extra special. From buffet menus to à la carte and superb drinks pairings, every craving can be catered to.
From post-work pints to satisfying Sunday Roasts, The Commercial is the beating heart of the Herne Hill community.
