Me and my fiancé visited a couple of nights ago, as we were visiting Lincoln for a few days. We were very excited to try the food after reading the website, and were not disappointed! The staff are very friendly and polite. The service was quick. The atmosphere was wonderful, as there are only about 7 tables in the restaurant,... More

Two couples, we had both eaten at the restaurant before and were keen to return. Our taxi arrived just before 7p.m. And had to knock on the door to gain entry as they hadn't opened for the night. Once inside we enjoyed pre-dinner drinks in a very small reception room. Our table was in the upstairs dining room which was... More

The restaurant itself is interesting with a good atmosphere. The staff are also excellent, attentive and well informed about the menu and wines. We were really looking forward to a last night meal in Lincoln and chose this restaurant because of its menu, location and reviews. We both had fish (Turbot and Halibut) which usually form a delicious base for... More

First time we have eaten here despite living in Lincoln for many years. The restaurant is tastefully decorated which creates a warm atmosphere. The food was very nice (especially the crab starter) but I wasn't convinced the food was relative to the prices.The only thing I did not like about this place was the fact they kept a £30 deposit...

Went for the lunch for less menu on Saturday. This was our first visit but it will not be our last. The welcome was very warm. Small restaurant but lovely atmosphere. The food was the best we've eaten in Lincoln and we are spoilt for choice as there is such variety. The starter was great and when I complimented the... More

Me and my wife went out for her birthday and booked a month in advance online for a weekend in August. Unbeknown to us it was actually The Jews House 10th Anniversary celebrations. It was great to sample their best dishes over the past 10 years and sampling various ranges of wines. The staff were fantastic and the chef managed... More

Last night we had a very special private dining experience at this restaurant. The team couldn't have been more helpful. Gavin, the owner and chef, created a fabulous tapas menu which was superb. There was something for everyone and those with allergies were well catered for. It was great value for money. It's highly recommended and we will definitely return... More
