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

We went here for dinner with my daughter and son in law when visiting them near Lincoln. It was excellent in every way, superb food and excellent discreet service in a very elegant but small dining room. If you're in Lincoln and want a special treat this is the place to go. Reasonable value at 380 pounds for 4 including... More

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
