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

Last time we visited Lincoln we walked past this restaurant at the base of the hill on a Sunday when it was closed. The menu looked really interesting so we decided that we would eat here next time we visited Lincoln. We pre-booked, this restaurant is very busy especially on a Friday and Saturday night and this evening was no... More

How interesting to eat in old of the oldest building in the country. The room has been nicely restored to restaurant standard, though I thought our tables for two on the first floor were a little close together for this price of establishment. The menu is not huge and doesn't seem to change much, which I think is a good... More

From the moment we walked into this quaint restaurant, we were treated to wonderful attentive service. The food was outstanding with nice little touches like a complimentary appetiser and bread that comes in a nice little bag with clay beads to keep the fresh bread warm. I would class the food as European fine dining with lots of local and... More

Attractive stylish modern dining room of good quality providing a comfortable ambience with nicely laid tables. Cuisine in our experience is very good and is presented attractively and has good flavours with well prepared sauces. Service was very good.

Our second visit to the Jews house took place this Saturday - I was a special occasion as we were entertaining my Mother and Step Father, so standards and expectations were set pretty high. However we didn't need to worry - we were warmly greeted by the staff on arrival and taken immediately to our lovely table upstairs. The menu... More
