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 ten 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.

My wife and I dined at The Jews House on Saturday night, and had a fabulous experience. The food was outstanding: beautifully cooked classic dishes, prepared with a twist, and elegantly presented. Samantha's unbounded knowledge and enthusiasm guided us in our choices, especially with the accompanying wines and ports where she hit bulls-eye every time. As good a dining experience as we've had in a long time, and that's including a Michelin * or 2 here and there. I cannot recommend this place strongly enough.

The menu and wine list are expert and imaginative. The food was beautifully cooked and attractively presented. The range and quality of wine by the glass is impressive and exciting. I can't wait to go back.

The food was absolutely stunning. Service was ok - the waitress either didn't know enough about the dishes to answer questions - she seemed to be either shy/nervous or new. Samantha was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and gave first class recommendations

Really impressed with our visit here, The greeting on arrival was lovely, and although the tables felt closer than I would have liked, I didn't feel boxed in. I didn't realise there is a nice area to take a drink before eating, it might have persuaded us to come 15 mins earlier! The meals were beautifully tasty (portions could have been bigger), atmosphere was good. Only 1 small gripe.... The service was a little too discreet - we asked for the bill and seemed to be waiting another 15 minutes to get it paid. It wasn't that busy (or certainly didn't feel it) so it surprised us. But when we return I'm sure it will have proved to be a one-off. Thank you, we will 100% return, and have already given recommendations!

An amazing evening, creative tasting menu with some very interesting flavour combinations that shouldn't have worked but certainly did. Taking our taste buds to a new level. A definite must for foodies.

I let you know in advance that I was gluten free and was extremely impressed that you had anticipated that I might order the blue cheese starter with walnut toast and had made g free walnut bread. Five stars just for that although the whole experience was a five star one for everybody. Many thanks. I will be recommending you to friends.
