Located at the foot of Lincoln's famous 'Steep Hill' in The Strait is Jew's House and Jew Court. Built in 1150-1160 it is thought to be one of the oldest domestic dwellings remaining today in England. A rather attractive building that oozes history you can not be anything but amazed by the thought of the stories its walls would be able to tell if they could speak. Steep Hill is a great part of a great City and the Jew's House is worth stopping and admiring for 5 to 10 minutes.

Jew’s House is next to the Jew’s Court on Steep Hill in the centre of Lincoln and dates back to the 12th century and is part of England’s early Jewish history. The house was taken from the Jewish owners during the expulsion of Jews from England in the 13th century. , upstairs is still a synagogue used today .We went as part of the Jewish heritage tour which was very interesting and culminated with a visit and idea of how the synagogue works .It really is a fantastic building to just visit/photograph etc and is close to the cathedral etc all well worth a visit too .

We opted for the six course tasting menu (must book in advance) and it was really good. The service is excellent and we really enjoyed it. It is expensive but you get what you pay for and theservice alone justifies the expense every once in a while.

Apparently this place is one of the oldest houses in the British Isles, dating back to the late 1000s. It certainly is very beautiful, and inside you can find lots of old and interesting books for sale.

We had a most enjoyable evening dining at this little gem of a place. We were welcomed with open arms and taken to the cosy lounge upstairs, where we took our time to study the choice of menu and the extensive wine list, during which, the young lady was most helpful in answering our questions etc. The food we were served, was simply delicious and very tasty, and most enjoyable to consume, washed down of course with our choice of wine, a perfect combination. Furthermore, the table service we received was absolutely perfect, we were not rushed in any way at all, so we were left to enjoy what the four of us, considered to be an exceptional dining experience.

Yet another of those buildings that Lincoln seems to be full of, old and full of history, although this one has more than its fair share.

A quiet environment served at a nice pace. Food is divine but tends to be a little small...saying that, the food is cooked to perfection. Would like music playing in the background so we didn’t need to whisper.

OK, so it's one if the oldest residential buildings in England. That's genuinely interesting, but once you've taken a photo, that's about how long you need to visit for.
