Visiting Lincoln for 4 days I booked The Jews House after researching the local restaurants & this is something I always do. The restaurant is a traditional establishment in a grade one listed building with a quiet & cosy environment. The staff were welcoming, pleasant & helpful & included the owner on the night we visited. The menu is small... More

This was a special birthday meal, and it certainly lived up to expectations. We had the six-course taster menu, which was excellent value. The wi e list is relatively small, but nevertheless has a good range of not too expensive wines.We would certainly go again.

I came here for lunch with ten others for my 21st birthday celebration. I cannot say a bad word. The combination of flavours were incredible and the chocolate ganache with passion fruit cream and coffee granite was one of the best desserts I have ever tasted! The staff were friendly and helpful. The interesting history of the building was explained... More

Love this wonderful atmospheric restaurant. So much history!! Samantha is so knowledgable, especially when it comes to wine. Always love talking to her about the meals. Tonight we had the tasting menu which was amazing, the last pudding (chocolate, not sure exactly what it was called) was absolutely beautiful!!

Visited as a couple for dinner. Nice location away from the Saturday night carnage of the city centre. Building is interesting but challenging. Reception lounge is on the first floor as there is no room to stand in the entrance which is close to the kitchen serving area. Food was well presented but my main course ( pork belly) although...

The three course menu for £17.50 was amazing value. The food and service was top notch and will definitely return.

The food looks great but it was overly salty which made me want water to then be charged £3.50 for a small bottle and then to be topped up when the bottle ran out and again charged another £3.50 without being asked if we would like more water. BEWARE THE WATER CHARGE. We were extremely disappointed that the rib of... More

Thank you for your review, albeit not very accurate! Firstly, Our Small bottled water 330ml is priced at £1.95 and our large bottled water 750ml is priced at £3 which is the latter that you had. secondly, on our website there is a gallery page which has a photo of a Rib of Beef on it, but not on any...

I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. My wife and I booked the fixed price lunch menu and we were both delighted with the quality and standard of the food served to us. In addition the service was attentive and friendly and we shall be happy to return the next time we are in Lincoln.

Our family were looking for a nice place to take our host for the week say thank you. It was perfect... as we entered from the cold wet Steep Hill we were greeted immediately & our coats, hats & scarves were whisked away & hung for us & we were ushered to a sitting room upstairs.

We went to the Jews house for New years eve hoping for a wonderful experience.. My elderly mother was not able to make the evening which we told the staff on arrival. When we asked for our bill at the end of the evening only half of our deposit was showing. We showed the waiter our £100.00 deposit confirmation. he... More
