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.
Exceptional dining experience at the Jews House, food is amazing, the wine we had complemented the meal and was one of the best I’ve ever had. We’ve booked again with friends in October cannot wait.
Great selection of wines and beers. The food was very good, but not excellent. Very friendly, professional service but we just felt that the whole evening didn't quite meet our expectations for a restaurant in this price bracket.
We really enjoyed our evening, the food was great & the staff were lovely.
Wonderful venue, stunning food and brilliant staff, made my wife's birthday extra special.
Thank you again for a lovely meal which is always a touch of luxury and class in our busy lives. The Jews House keeps us coming back to Lincoln again and again. Esther and James Short.
Charming restaurant with amazing food.
Food delicious and fresh; staff could be a bit friendlier
My name is Sheridan not Cheradan. Everyone was very kind when we arrived the restaurant is very cosy and we felt very special. Thank you.
Samantha’s knowledge of wine elevates a dining experience to another level. Gavins dishes are truly memorable and certainly demand a return visit to sample again. The only issue is the time required to save up for that return visit, ensuring it’s a proper treat when you do!
Excellent food and delightful service. We will definitely return when we are next in Lincoln.
A delightful evening with friendly staff in a warm, welcoming environment. The knowledge that the team has is incredible, and they never fail to impress us with their efficiency, especially when having to look after a large group of diners.
We had the tasting menu. We weren’t over faced, it was delicious and reasonably priced. A lovely evening and we weren’t rushed.
Five star experience
If you are heading to Lincoln take the time to try and get a booking here. The food was excellent, as was the service in an intimate space.
The food was fantastic, service was excellent, we sat upstairs and I did find it quite a dark room. When we come again I will request a table downstairs.
Beautiful food, atmosphere a bit stuffy.
I’ll excellent meal and service
We enjoyed evening very much. Everything was spot on.
Great atmosphere and wonderful food.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The service was friendly and efficient. Questions were answered expertly. The cooking was very good, provided you are not on a diet! We were on the top floor. The restaurant is located in a rather dilapidated old house and its shows, but this is no serious impediment. I would definitely go again and recommend the restaurant.
Pleasant night brilliant
Excellent wine recommendations to complement food.
A fantastic evening with incredible food, attentive service and an extensive wine list. My only minor point is that some of the decor could be updated, such as signs for the toilet which weren’t in keeping with the rest of the interior.
