The Commercial Hotel Story

The Commercial Hotel started life as a “tin hut bottle shop”. It is the second oldest business in Casino and has occupied the Mafeking Lamp corner since it was established in 1869.
Back in the day…
…there were occasions when steers would enter the front bar during Beef Week, they were refused service due to disorderly behaviour – a truly authentic Aussie experience.

Located in the centre of town, the Commercial Hotel is full of heritage charm and strives to maintain its inherent features.

You can enjoy a refreshing drink in the beer garden, try your luck in the sports bar, or warm yourself beside the fire adjacent to the dining area on a cold night.

The Commercial Hotel is proudly “pokie free”, choosing instead to focus on great food, entertainment, and the country charm and atmosphere of our heritage building and friendly staff.
