The one joy of my daughter having gone to University in Lincoln is that it gave us the opportunity to discover the Jew's House. This was my daughter's and my second visit, but the rest of the family (husband, grandparents, junior daughter and boyfriend and honorary godmother) had not been before. Because we were a party of eight, we had... More

I had the taster menu with three friends. I can't speak for them, but I felt the experience was certainly worth it - with excellent service throughout the evening. Indeed, the staff were impeccable; they were happy to answer questions about the various courses, and to make a change for one of my friends who had a food intolerance. The... More

Food was nicely prepared and a gourmet delight. Dinner was enjoyable and felt like I was a guest in their living room.

I visited the Jews house last week with my sister having read some reviews on trip advisor. The service from walking through the door to leaving was very professional and polite. Front of house seemed to have exceptional knowledge of the dishes on the menu and also the wine list. We had the taster menu. The food was nice but... More

We visited the Jews house for our Anniversary meal last night and we can honestly say everything was first class. The meal was outstanding and the service was excellent too. The waitress had great knowledge on the wines and she recommended a lovely bottle. Anybody wanting a great meal and service it's definately worth a visit.

After hearing great reviews about this restaurant, I was very disappointed. The food was average at best, very very small, the service started Ok and then became too familiar for our liking. I went with four work colleagues, and we all felt the same, food was OK but nothing spectacular. The presentation of the food was very good, and the... More

This is located on a tiny street in the centre of Lincoln. The welcome from the staff was warm and the room is beautifully decorated and very cosy. We ate lamb and veal for main course - very tasty and portions just the right size. Lovely desserts and professional but not intrusive service. Reservations recommended as it seemed like it... More

We went to Jews House the other night, had absolutely no problems reserving a table on a Friday night. Genuinely cannot praise the whole experience highly enough; the staff are polite and attentive and the food is out of this world. We booked the taster menu and each course was sublime, extremely fresh and cooked to perfection. Samantha, the manager,... More

Visited with my wife for our 1st wedding anniversary, and had a lovely relaxing evening. I've been meaning to visit for some time, and this seemed like the perfect excuse. I'd highly recommend the miso belly pork, and the lamb for main. Both were exquisite. Service was great and it wasn't overly expensive. My only recommendation would be that it... More

The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Even my husband who is not a fish lover thoroughly enjoyed the first two courses from the tasting menu! The food was extremely well presented and brought to the table by very polite, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Will certainly go again.
