In the heart of Chester, The Commercial Hotel has been a fixture of St Peter’s Churchyard since 1817. The old pub was constructed as part of the Commercial Newsrooms by reknowned architect Thomas Harrison who was also responsible for rebuilding of Chester Castle and the Grosvenor Bridge, this being his only pub.
The Commercial has had a colourful history of landlords and patrons throughout the years, with notable tenants including Charles Sandford in 1828 whom managed The Commerical for many successful years.
In 2005 The Commercial fell on hard times, being subject to fire and a failed attempt to remodel the interior by a national tavern chain.
In 2010 The Commericial Hotel has returned, maintaining much of it’s original charm, and is set to become the popular choice of discerning Cestrians for generations to come.
