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.

We had a fantastic dinner here during the Christmas Market in a lovely peaceful environment whilst the mad throng outside went on their way. The staff were very knowledgable about the local produce and courteous and this added to the experience.

A marvellous evening celebrating a friend’s birthday. We took the opportunity to try different wines with different courses which was a treat. Sam’s cellar is delicious and very flexible. Gavin’s food was as good as ever and we all thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Clean plates all round. Service was excellent. Inconspicuous until needed. Wouldn’t hesitate to return. Thank you Team!

Had the taster menu for 2. All courses were excellently composed & executed. A great meal, with perfectly balanced wine. The service was also of the highest standard; attentive & knowledgeable, but not overbearing. Remains Lincoln’s best.

Good but not quite great. First few courses were exceptional: great flavours and nice presentation. I disagreed with some fine points on the later ones: particularly sorbet with hot belly pork didn't work for me. Similarly the service was friendly and helpful, but it was occasionally slow. Well worth considering for a good meal.

Thank you again for a wonderful meal. We enjoyed every course of the tasting menu, including the additional bonus dish! We will be booking again for our next trip to Lincoln in April 2019. Peter and Monica Bryden.

A lovely restaurant in the heart of LINCOLN. The Jews House is that great restaurant that you have to go to for a special occasion. Gavin & Samantha ensure that you are well looked after from the moment that you enter the Restaurant. Service is excellent with well trained knowledgeable staff. The food is divine and it doesn’t matter if you choose from the a la carte or the tasting menu - you won’t be disappointed. Excellent wine list to and at some very reasonable prices, in my opinion.

Been meaning to go for a number of years but as we live in Essex a bit of a problem. We finally got the chance to book and was not disappointed, the food and service was excellent. Finding out that the young lady serving us was actually the owner was a pleasant surprise. The owner was more than happy to spend as much time as necessary talking to us about the history of the restaurant and the food they serve, she talked with great passion and pride and quite rightly so, one of the best restaurants we have been to. Wish we could visit more often.

Everything was lovely except the Tonka bean tart which was actually disgusting. Not an ingredient I’m familiar with but it tasted as if it had far too much in and was bitter to the point of being inedible. Disappointing end to a lovely meal.
