Great setting and ambience , food very good as usual . The only letdown is the staff , lack of care and attention at this level is unforgivable and unfortunately the Castle excels at it , food thrown on the table , not being asked if everything is ok and forgetting the sides that we ordered are not acceptable ....

We ate here whilst staying in the hotel. The ambience of the restaurant is high end and the staff were very atentative. Our wine order and food order was taken and the starter soon followed. Bread was brought in between. We had pigeon and I would highly recommend this perfectly cooked . We then had the steak which was again... More

Four of us ate here. Overall we felt some of the food was good, but some distinctly of an average standard, and a little over priced for what was served. We had a good, inexpensive bottle of wine. The description of the food is complex, lots of ingredients and components - I think our feeling was that a simpler, better... More

Phoned to book lunch table for 6, one has allergies. Promised to phone back with what they could offer, failed to do so so I visited. Promised an email in a few days, this again failed to materialise. Contact then via Hotels website again elicited no response. Did they want us? Eventually we did go but starters and desserts disappointing... More

This is my second visit to Reform and I'm please to say it wasn't a disappointment. Service was excellent from the initial greeting through to our parting, attentive and just the right amount of visits to the table to ensure our evening was going well. I started with the frittata which was good, the main course I chose was the... More

We took 4 friends for a special get together on Saturday night after a few recommendations. The first impression when we arrived and were greeted, left us excited about the evening. The setting and the initial service was excellent and all our starters were very good.The main courses when they arrived all looked amazing, unfortunately after that the evening took... More

Had a nice meal in the Reform, yet I can't help but feel just a little disappointed. The venue has a very high class feel, and although the staff are very attentive, they don't seem to know much about the dishes on the menu. When my wife enquired about a starter, the waiter was unable to tell us anything that... More

Setting was very nice as were the staff. Food presentation was good, however; seasoning! Where was the flavour? Everything tasted the same. Wine is hugely overpriced!!! We usually buy a bottle when dining out, but this was ridiculous. What's with the laminated kids menu...? Yes it's nice that the owners kids designed it, but it looks naff and detracts from... More

Had sunday lunch here whilst visiting relatives in Lincoln. Excellent value at £15.95 for two courses or three courses for £19.95 , with a choice of four in all courses from the set menu. We opted out of the starter but were offered some rather delightful different breads and unusual butters. We all had the roast beef, beautifully cooked, lovely... More

We dropped in here because we had clocked it from the walk around the castle walls. It looked good and we're sure it is but having just one round of drinks make sure you have deep pockets because it aint cheap. Pint of lager and glass of white wine £12. Always say you get what you pay for so would... More
