Review on The Jew's House Restaurant
Located on Steep Hill in the historic city of Lincoln, The Jew's House Restaurant is set within an amazing 12th century building, one of the earliest surviving town houses in England. Maintaining its original stone frontage, ornate entrance arch and many interior features, it has been updated with a pleasing mix of new and old, featuring contemporary designer wallpaper, tapestries, tables laid with crisp white linen and sparkling crystal glassware, it oozes a timeless charm.
Chef proprietor is Gavin Aitkenhead, who has plied his trade in some illustrious kitchen during his career, including the famous Wig and Mitre in Lincoln and the critically acclaimed Winteringham Fields in Scunthorpe. His cooking is cast in the modern European mould and he is committed to using the finest ingredients sourced from trusted suppliers. Dishes hit the button with starters like pork belly, miso glaze, tiger prawns and melon sorbet or crab tart, sweetcorn foam and fennel salad. Main courses usher in roast and sous vide milk fed lamb, confit belly, Berkswell cheese and thyme croquette, white beans and artichokes or Cornish cod, baked with chermoula, chick pea and tomato dressing and crushed new potatoes. Artistically displayed desserts close the show with strawberry 'Artic Roll', buttermilk pannacotta, strawberry and Pimm's salad or Valrhona chocolate and praline tart paired with pistachio ice cream.
Exemplary, focussed service led by Samantha Tomkins and her team together with an excellent wine list adds to the whole package.
