3 generations of my family had a wonderful lunch to celebrate the occasion. We eat in delightful cosy warm surroundings. The decor made us feel that we were in the dining room of an old house which of course we were. Food was very good and showed flair and imagination. Portion size just right. There was no shortage of flavours.... More

I originally visited this restaurant last August, I took my mum for her 85th birthday along with my sister and the place was simply fantastic. I meant to do a review then but didn't get around to it but I went again last week and again it was great. This place is as good as any fine dining restaurant I've... More

Located in a wonderful heritage building with fascinating history, The Jews House provides a suitably limited menu with a careful choice of well presented options. A little restraint could be exercised by staff as to resist table hovering, but a nice meal at a reasonable cost. Would certainly return.

Went to celebrate my birthday and enjoyed a 7course taster menu which was fab. Nice selection and enough food without feeling completely stuffed at the end. Your table is yours all night so nice and relaxing.

We were a group of four eating on a Friday night. We had booked in advance, probably essential even in January. We were warmly welcomed and our coats and hats were efficiently taken away. Despite being a bitterly cold night, the restaurant, including the foyer, were warm. We were shown to our table in an upstairs in a room that... More

We have visited this restaurant previously some years ago. It was lovely then so I decided to visit again for a pre birthday lunch with my husband. The lunch menu is very good value £20 for 3 courses. The restaurant, service and food are second to none. The restaurant is elegant and the staff knowledgable about the food. Really really... More

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
