About The Jews House Restaurant
Here at The Jews House Restaurant our aim is quite simple: To give you an experience you remember for it's great cooking and attentive service. Award winning Chef Gavin Aitkenhead and Samantha Tomkins have had the restaurant over twelve years. Housed in one of the oldest building in the beautiful and historic city of Lincoln. We are located at the bottom of Steep Hill. A stones throw from the Cathedral and Castle and convenience of the city center.
Gavin's philosophy on food is simple. "My aim as a chef is first and foremost about flavour, then we can get to work on the right balance of textures and cooking techniques. I am passionate about using the best suppliers whether a simple salad or a beautiful saddle of lamb."
The restaurant is over two floors, which is perfect for a romantic dinner for two or a private party with family and friends.
Great place ! happy to recommend
Food was delicious although portions were quite small, I'm not a big eater and could have definitely eaten more. Service was outstanding, and the wine recommendations were fantastic.
Outstanding wine list
The food is great - service less so.
Service and personal touch makes me want to return and the food was really good, thank you x
Exquisite food, a joy to see and taste. Roast Mallard was delicious. And chocolate sorbet was intense yet refreshing - just glorious
Arranged a business lunch for 14 and the Team at Jews House could not have been more helpful in accommodating us. As usual and as expected the food was beautiful and the wine excellent and was very well received by guests and colleagues in a lovely historic setting. Thank you Samantha, Gavin and Team.
Fantastic food as always.Still the best food in Lincoln for us.We will be back!!
Really lovely food and setting Very good value
Fabulous food, amazing service, lovely atmosphere. Overall outstanding service.
I cannot fault the food, but the service was incredibly slow. We waited about 30-40 minutes between courses for the taster menu. It felt very much because we were there on a voucher (a £150 wedding gift from my godmother), that we were less important and worth less consideration than those ordering from the a la carte menu and paying full price. Very disappointed.
Great food, great service, great experience
We really enjoyed the food and the relaxed “special” atmosphere.
Excellent service excellent food, a great all round experience. Thank you
For us still the tastiest food in Lincoln.Service charming as ever.
An excellent meal, service and atmosphere. Will definitely come back again on our next visit to Lincoln. Can't praise the food and staff enough. A fantastic night.
Our food was amazing , beautifully presented. Wine excellent (we took Sams recommendation!) and service top notch. We had a lovely evening thankyou.
Fabulous food and service as always
An enormous thank you to Samantha and her amazing team for a simply perfect evening. The service, food and experience is understated, unpretentious creating a very special unique treasure. A must to anyone looking for that extraordinary special dining venue
Amazing place, delicious food, delightful staff. We had a lovely leisurely lunch, thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Wonderful service, and divine food with incredible flavours, presented and served beautifully. Our favourite restaurant. Always welcoming and always a perfect evening. Thank you.
Excellent as usual thanks for a great night. We will definitely be back just loved the taster menu and the jelly pork was my favourite.
Excellent food and friendly staff, well informed about food and wines. Whilst it is a lovely old building, it just lacked some atmosphere, something like an open fire in keeping with the building (appreciate this is not easy but options are available).
first rate as always
Service & Food were exceptional beautiful surroundings Staff well trained wine selection good We really enjoyed the experience
