We left it late to book but so glad we could get in. The whole experience was fantastic and we will visit again when in town for sure. We also have to say that the waiting staff were extremely good and so much more than that; friendly, helpful and expressed a great deal of pride with regard to the area... More

Very friendly service, food just great, wine by the glass available which allows perfect match with the food. We couldn't have found a better place for our celebration meal.

A former 'best in Lincoln' restaurant in one of Lincoln's oldest Roman dwellings on Lincoln's charming 'Steep Hill'. Now unfortunately overtaken in the food stakes by numerous other restaurants who offer a more modern and cutting edge dining experience. It's not bad its just that its lost its sparkle and is no longer good value , or has an interesting... More

Though an interesting concept the Jews house fails to deliver on food pricing and atmosphere. The menu is utterly self confident and generally trying to be fine dining of which on execution it fails miserably. At 20£ min main the food is heavily overpriced. The small rooms although novel create a waiting room style atmosphere which is unpleasant. The staff... More

If you're looking for somewhere special, this is it. Beautiful, very old surroundings. Attentive, well-trained staff. Superbly prepared and presented food. Outstanding wines. Ask your hostess to recommend based on your food choices. She's never disappointed me yet. In fact writing this review reminds me that it's been too long since my last visit. Off now to book my next.

We've had the very good fortune to dine in some fabulous Michelin starred restaurants and the tasting menu we had on Friday was right up there with them. Sam chose the perfect wines to accompany the courses and we were blown away by Gavin's skill in the kitchen. It was everything you'd want from fine dining. Delighted to discover such... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal to celebrate a wedding anniversary - we particularly liked the ambience and decor. A short menu which is always a good sign and evidence of the chef's perchant for artichokes. I enjoyed the crab cakes and the bouillibaise- my husband chose the game options and we shared a chocolatey pudding. All in all excellent if... More

Visited Jews House for a birthday celebration. The menu didn't inspire me and was slightly disappointed about the selection. However the food we are was wonderful and the evening superb. The service was second to non and I would happy recommend this to my friends and family
