The Commercial Inn was situated on North Street and previously known as The Freemasons Inn. This pub was closed in 1911 when a licensing review stated that there were seven licensed houses within 20 yards. It was purchased and used by the Liberal Club from 1912, and by the army during WWII. Closed as the Liberal Club in the 1970s, it is now in retail use. In the above photo it is the building on the left hand side with the flagpole outside.
