Delightful Spring Tasting Menu at the Jews House

We were staying in Lincoln for the weekend and booked The Jews House for the Friday evening as they were doing a Spring Tasting Menu. I am allergic to shellfish & molluscs but this did not present the chef with a problem and he gave me an alternative to one of the courses. (This flexibility is... read more

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left it was a special experience. The service was truly excellent with Samantha, the owner, going into very fine detail (when requested) about everything ranging from how a dish is cooked, to which dessert wine is the most appropriate for each chosen dessert. The food itself was simply excellent throughout... More

Birthday lunch with the girls. Relaxing atmosphere, beautifully proper but not "stuffy". Delicious food, delicious wine and the service was superb! My first time eating there in a long, long time and was very impressed. Great value lunch menu with lovely little additions from Gavin here and there. will definitely recommend this lovely restaurant to my friends.

The Jews House more than lived up to our expectations; occupying ancient buildings at the top of Steep Hill and with the cathedral looming nearby, this little gem served up a delightful meal. The service is personal - with room for only about 20 covers it could hardly be anything else - considerate and excellent, quiet, confident and careful. My... More

Long weekend in Lincoln and due to Tripadvisor reviews wanted to get a table here, which we just managed to do. Relaxed atmosphere, really pleasant and helpful staff, super wine list and fantastic food. I would strongly recommend a visit to the Jews House restaurant if ever you're in Lincoln.

We visited Lincoln for the weekend and wanted somewhere special to eat to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The restaurant was excellent, the young staff were very attentive and professional without being overly so. Food was superb. Limited menu but that was a positive as it was difficult to choose everything looked exquisite

If you are looking for a special or celebratory meal in Lincoln then Jew's House should be near the top of your list. The food is excellent, the service spot on and a good wine selection on offer. Perhaps on the pricey side but as always you pay for what you get. For an evening meal the tasting menu is... More

I took my Grandma here for her 90th birthday lunch and we had a superb experience. The lunch menu is outstandingly good value. All of our dishes were interesting, well-balanced, beautifully presented and well cooked. Accompanied by two very good wines. Service was friendly, relaxed and attentive. I look forward to going back to sample A La Carte.
