Bucking Fastard left this review about The Commissary

You get to this bar through a gateway off Shepherdess Walk by the bridge over the Regents Canal and then by walking along the decking where boats are permanently moored.The building is part of Eagle Wharf and was once the frontage to a warehouse.The decking widens out and allows room for a series of bench tables for good weather use.Access from a boat cruising the canal will be tricky and would entail breasting up to a moored craft.
The bar has two rooms,to the right an area which looks more like a restaurant,while the tap room from the front door is really the place to drink.The large windows let in a lot of light and modern furniture gives this a contemporary vibe ,while flatscreens will show both terrestrial TV (on a drop down) and well as Sky Sports.
There is a short pub food menu offering mains,sandwiches and quesadillas ,whatever they are.
The bar just has 4 kegged beers doubled up ,including a Samuel Adams and a Shepherd Neame Whitstable Bay Blonde lager (a total rip off at £2.50 the half).No real ale and no interesting craft beer on keg let this bar down,and despite an interesting location,I cant see any reason to revisit.
