Jews House Restaurant

Jews House Restaurant is a restaurant in Lincoln that is housed in one of the oldest buildings in the City of Lincoln. The building dates back to around 1150, making it 900 years old. Some historians would consider this building as the oldest dwelling house in Europe. The building has been renovated over the years but the façade, windows and doorway were kept intact. Stories surrounding the building have been going around for centuries but nothing was ever proven.

Chef Gavin Aitkenhead and Samantha Tomkins head the restaurant. This Lincoln restaurant offers delightful food and outstanding service making them an excellent choice for dining. The place itself exudes a pleasant and relaxed ambiance.

The interior of the restaurant is warmly lit with attractive décor. The Main Dining Room is set-up elegantly with seating for intimate dining or group dining. They also have The Library where diners are surrounded with shelves of books. It also has a fireplace for a cozy set-up. Somehow, this area has a more casual feel than the Main Dining Room. There’s another room they called the Tudor Room. This room is ideal for small intimate dinner parties. The Library or Main Dining Room is open for small wedding receptions.
