In the 1850’s someone decided to open a pub, and because of its location, they called it The Commercial Hotel. The records don’t go back that far to tell you who that great pioneer was, but I bet he wasn’t expecting to leave a legacy that would last on over 160 years.
She’s changed her name a few times in the last century, from the Commercial (185?-1875) to the Prince Maximilian (1875 -1890) then back to the Commercial (1890-1939). Then of course the great Hotel Max (1939-2010) back to the Prince Maximilian (2010-2014)…. perhaps maybe back to the Commercial again?
The Max, our pub is a local hub, a meeting place, an important part of the community and this pub has withstood the test of time. One can only imagine just how many birthdays, engagements & weddings she has celebrated. So many great times, and a few farewells for those departed. A place of good food, good wine & good friends, of music and merriment.
For me, it’s been a great honour to be the custodian of The Max over the past 4 years, a drop in the ocean of her 6 generations. It is now time to pass on the baton to her new caretakers, the Reymond Family. I wish them every success with the new chapter of our beloved Max.
With that our time as her guardian has come to an end, I’d like to thank our amazing staff & community for all your support.
She will be closed from the 27th April, while having a face lift and rejuvenation for her next 100 years & beyond.
It has been a pleasure serving you.
