Last pub before getting the train back. Narrow place with bar to the right. Beer garden to rear. Five weak real ales so had to go for cider.

The Treaty of Commerce is a decent looking pub that is handy for the train station,so this is usually our last pub of the day when in Lincoln.
When i first went in this pub is was an Ansells tied house,things have improved since then.

Once inside there is a single long oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the bar is to the left,there is some bench seating to the front,the rear area has normal tables and chairs.
There were about five real ales on the bar plus two real ciders,we had a drink of Ashover Citra which was a decent enough drink but slightly too hoppy for my liking,the other beers i noted were Batemans XB and as beer called Plum Porter.
The pub was very busy on our mid evening visit.
The prices were very high with out pint and a half being well over £5.00.
We were a bit dissapointed with this pub.

This is a narrow terraced Bateman's pub, with a patio area at the back. It is a mock-Tudor look, with the upper storeys in white and black beam, with large sash windows, one projecting, with a small gable perched on top. The ground facade is in black and white with leaded tracery windows.

The interior is a long room, broken into two parts; a bar at the front and dining at the back. A side corridor takes you to the patio and bogs. The decor at the front has cream and wood panel, with olive green, white upper wall and ceiling, with a wood floor. There is perimeter seating and stools. After passing through a tartan wallpapered arch, the back, which is barrel-vaulted, is in cream, white and red, with a red patterend carpet. I didn't eat here, so can't comment on the food. There is a TV, but this wasn't on and the background music was quiet and general. The service was friendly and there were a few locals in, mainly younger.

Beer; usual tap stuff with handpulls containing; Bateman's XB, XXXB, Jewel in the Crown, Sheppy Neame Whitstable Bay, Caudle Bitter (which was off) and Thwaites Nutty Black MILD, which was decent and dispensed from a squaky pump, making the lads at the bar laugh.

A nice little pub with a good selection of Bateman's and other beers. Definitely worth a visit and it is difficult to stay for just one (hence i had two).
