Alan Winfield left this review about The Railway

The Commercial Railway is handily placed just down from Brighouse train station.
Once inside the main room is oblong shaped with the bar on the right side,the seating is comfy bench type and small stools,there is a smaller square shaped room to the front left which also has bench seating and small stools,both rooms are carpeted and have a very comfortable feel to them.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Copper Dragon Golden Pippin which went down well,the other real ales were Tetley Cask and Derby Brewery Hop Till You Drop.
There is a pool table and background music was playing.
I found this to be a very comfortable pub to have a drink in,one i could settle in if not on a pub crawl.

Unusually this pub still has 3 distinct rooms even though it's been opened out a bit. One room has album covers and guitars on the wall along with a piano, another has a pool table and a quiz machine. The main bar area also has a dartboard. 4 ales available during my visit. Tetleys Bitter, Ossett Big Red, Copper Dragon Golden Pippin and an excellent pint of Sharps Rockpool. The pub was pleasantly busy on my Friday, early evening visit and I ended up chatting to the friendly landlord. I really liked this pub and would definitely visit again if in Brighouse.

Old Boots left this review about The Commercial Inn (AKA The Railway)

The nearest pub to the station, it still retains three rooms, two at front, pool in one, a sitting room in other. The main bar has a five pull plus two T-bars of the usual suspects - nothing to see move along. Cask beers from Marstons, Tetley, Copper Dragon, and Grey Hawk - Yorkshire's greatest living brewer, Dave Sanders' joint venture with Copper Dragon. The service and beer quality was excellent but something, God knows what, was just missing for me, however it's still a very decent pub. Beer mats and corporate advertising as decor but some old Tetley's stuff as well which was more interesting. The toilets are behind the servery to each side. Mind the darts on the way to the gents. The pub has two names, The Commercial and The Railway.
