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.

The attention to detail is extraordinary. From the resturant, the lounge and including the bathroom. Individually elegant but together created a fabulous backdrop to the main event which is the food. Daring combinations to challenge the tastebuds. Exquisitely created and a feast for the eyes. The tasting menu was delicious. Unhurried and every minute and morsel enjoyed.

First time dining at the Jews House. The intimacy of the ground floor restaurant is nice and the service including advice on choosing a suitable wine for the food was great. The food itself was amazing and I cannot wait to go and again and try different food next time.

I'm nit-picking..a minor and probably very personal gripe. May I suggest "Enjoy your meal" is preferable to "Enjoy".....

What an excellent meal Asian night was, each dish was extremely tasty, the Black cod just melted in your mouth, the soft shell crab, the prawns all excellent. Then the pork and the duck - wow. Thanks for a great night.

The food at the Asian tasting menu was adequate for an Asian influenced menu. We felt it was overpriced compared to other fine dining restaurants we’ve been to previously and the dessert was a disappointment.

Just back from France where I ate in Michelin starred restaurants- the Jews house was at least their equal. Absolutely fantastic meal.

On every occasion that we have visited the Jews House Restaurant the food, atmosphere and service has been of a very high standard. I would suggest that the quality of the food compares favourably to some Michelin-starred establishments which we have visited but without the pretence sometimes associated with these. If you are looking for a fine dining experience in Lincoln, the Jews House Restaurant is most definitely at the top of our list with creativity complemented by some wonderful flavours.

Another wonderful evening spent at our favourite restaurant. We enjoyed the fish tasting menu and wine flight. The imaginative dishes were interesting and full of flavour. The welcome was warm and friendly and the service was impeccable and all the staff were well informed about each course and the accompanying wine. An excellent venue for a special occasion or treat.
