I was working in Lincolnshire recently and decided to visit Lincoln for a wander one evening. I was in the cathedral quarter and there were plenty of restaurants around, but I used my trusty TripAdvisor app to look for the best-rated places nearby and decided to try the Jews House. I was served by Hattie and she was superb -... More

Wonderful food, superb presentation and taste. Excellent service. Unique menu. . . .check it out on line. Everything cooked to perfection. A bit pricy but well worth it. (About ££40-50 a head for three courses plus bottle of wine). A delicious meal and evening to remember! Ensure you book a table though, to avoid disappointment, as gets booked up. The... More

Service at this establishment is second to none. We were served by two very young staff who were obviously very well trained, knew all about the food, ingredients and wine. Food excellent and well presented. The scallops were cooked to perfection as was the monkfish. Atmosphere quirky but added to the experience. Definitely recommend this place and a big thanks...

The Jews House is a restaurant set in an old quaint building with narrow stairs and doorways, it has a lovely atmosphere with attentive staff . The initial table service when we sat down was a little slow, we were left an uncomfortable period without drinks or bread. The first course we had was the goats cheese curd salad, it... More

This was recommended as being the best restaurant in Lincoln, which probably means it's the most expensive. It's an extremely steep hill to get to it, and so you need to be fit if you're walking which is possibly the only way to get to it, though a cab could probably get you close. We were greeted by a young... More

First visit to Lincoln, went as a couple for our anniversary, booked this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. Disappointed with the actual place inside, put in the corner of a very large room upstairs, next to a cupboard with another table very close, having a private conversation would be impossible. Toilet facilities were very good !! Nice to be... More

We visited from Ireland and were in Lincoln for the first time but visited the Jews House, they facilitated us without reservation and our evening was wonderful, fantastic food, great ambiance and wonderful hospitality. Absolutely to be recommended....but book ahead definitely worth it.

We booked through Tripadvisor yesterday and the booking was confirmed. When we turned up this evening there was no record of our booking. Obviously something had gone wrong with the IT systems but we all felt that the manager handled the situation badly. There was no apparent interest in the fact that our booking had gone wrong and no real... More

Other than a slightly diffident waiter we found the front of house operation pretty impressive. Good and attentive service, a good wine list and a small but intimate dining area. The kitchen isn't so good. The tomato and basil consommé was excellent but adding crab to it didn't help at all.The scallops were not as fresh as they should have... More
