What's not to like here? A very thoughtful menus each dish having layers of interesting and complimenting elements. Who knew that king scallops and a salty duck confit would match so brilliantly in a wonderful Jerusalem artichoke soup? Luckily the chef here did! 3 of us in our party each trying different dishes were all delighted with our food. There... More

Was disappointed when looking at the menu, but very happy with the food it was very tasty. They could do with more space between the tables as we felt we were joining in with the people on the next table..... Not really somewhere for a romantic evening

The food produced by Gavin and his staff was outstanding. I cannot wait to go back which will be in January 15. I would rate... More

I had been told about this restaurant by a colleague and promised we would try it out, 12 months on and we finally got there, what have we been missing. Went with friends for evening meal while in Lincoln Christmas Shopping. What a lovely old building and so comfy when we walked in from the cold. A nice welcome from... More

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

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
