The Jews house is unpretentious but interestingly historical, & the Dinner we had was delicious, interesting & beautifully presented. A modest but varied menu managed by Samantha & perfectly cooked by Gavin. Samantha recommended a good wine & not at the top of the price list! I enjoyed my birthday in this personal; & friendly restaurant-Just a shame it is... More

We had a great meal on a Saturday night, well cooked but not overly adventurous. Some nice touches such as the treacle bread (goes well with the cheese course too). I had the pork belly to start and the lamb both of which were well seasoned with reasonable portions. They try hard to stagger bookings so everyone doesn't arrive at... More

My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary here last week and had a lovely evening. We had the tasting menu and the food was fantastic! The service was flawless by all the waitresses and being served wine by the owner was great to learn more about the place too. If you're stuck on what wine to order, don't hesitate... More

Have lived in Lincoln for 7 years but went to Jews House for the first time for my birthday meal. Everything was perfect. The food was wonderful, as was the service. I couldn't fault it. It really made my birthday and I would recommend it to anyone. It's a slightly more expensive restaurant but you get what you pay for... More

The Jews House is undoubtedly the top Lincoln Restaurant. The menu albeit limited is well balanced and offers imaginative cuisine and interesting combinations. The wine list represents good value and the service is professional and well paced. All in all an act that is without its equal in Lincoln.

Charming hostess, lovely building with great character, and super food. Very attentive staff, and truly delicious food. Not mega expensive, and compared with other recent restaurant visits this is certainly great value for money. Sensibly priced wine, I can recommend the Shiraz......

My husband and I visited Jews house for a rare night out and we were both delighted. Service was great, and quick, and the food was absolutely delicious. I loved the fact that the bread was brought out to us warm and in a bag to keep it that way, not that mine lasted longer than a minute!! Couldn't fault... More

Fantastic evening at The Jew's House last night! Having read some reviews on here I wasn't sure what to expect from the service but in my opinion it was faultless. The staff were friendly, welcoming and displayed exactly the right level of attentiveness. We were not rushed at all and time between courses felt exactly right. The food was excellent;... More
