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.

I was disappointed to be honest having regularly dined at Winteringham Fields expected the food and service to be on par with there. It simply wasn’t, the Lamb dish lacked any flavour and not good value for money. No check backs during service. The cheese soufflé was simply not a soufflé it was very much like a crustless quiche. I have no issue paying £60 per head for 3 courses but thus was uninspiring

The food and service was fabulous. I found the dining room lacked any reflection of the building's history or of any style the owner would want to reflect- it was very nondescript.It was only when I went upstairs that I got any sense of the age of the building/cosy styling.

The missus didn't have a great choice as she's gluten free and doesn't eat pork. However, had a lovely evening here on Saturday. Great food, service and wine. Recommended.

Hello, thank you for your feedback however apart from the souffle we were able to offer you the whole menu gluten free. Sorry you felt this one dish that the misses could not have was the one she wanted. Regards

Friendly welcome with attentive staff. We never felt rushed although we had a late booking and were the last in the restaurant. Food was a joy to eat with beautiful presentation and flavours, a real treat that made our special day even more special.
