My husband and I visited The Reform on the first night of our stay in Lincoln. From the moment we walked in we were made extremely welcome by very attentive staff. Although initially it wasn't busy in the restaurant, but as the evening went on it filled up. The breads with flavoured butters were exceptionally fine, with the best being... More

We went to reform on sat night as a treat I orders scallops ( plural) for starter and recieved 1 scallop sliced into 3! Unfortunately we didn't comment until the end of the meal and we're told that scallops were very expensive - you can buy a single live one in a fish market for @ 75pence! We were given... More

We had an evening meal here as guests of the castle hotel.The food is of excellent quality and reasonably priced for what you get. The staff are very polite and helpful. The food we had was beautifully presented and very tasty. They give extra little touches like different flavoured homemade breads and butters. The three courses I had were the... More

The food is far too expensive. The scallop dish consisted of 1 scallop sliced into thirds accompanied by pistachio squares. At £11, simply not good enough. Overall the food is too salty, too rich and the portions are too small.

From the moment we entered the Hotel Restaurant we were made to feel special, the service was second to none the food Michelin star quality,( we've been in a few of them in our time ).I could have eaten everything on the menu. Mark, the Chef, really has talent, his interpretation and flare in producing food you will not see... More

My fiancé and I are visiting Lincoln and decided to come here for dinner and we are so happy that we did! We went to dinner for 7pm and by 8pm they were packed! We made reservations so I would definitely suggest doing so. The food was so good and the staff was very nice and happy! We both had... More

Being a yellow belly myself I admit to being biased but I have found every meal at the Reform to be a special occasion. Set in the beautiful top end of Lincoln my family have never been disappointed after dining here. Little touches like the bread with flavoured butters add to the experience and the presentation of the food is... More

Tonight we celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary at The Castle Hotel's Reform restaurant. From the minute we walked in the service was faultless. We were quickly offered drinks and menus in the bar and taken through to the restaurant. I had the rib eye steak and it was cooked to perfection. My wife had the pork and likewise it was... More

Good choice of wines by the glass. Good atmosphere and service. The food was a bit hit-and-miss. Great starters - lovely goats cheese salad and a tasty salmon mousse dish, both beautifully presented. The mains were disappointing. The guinea fowl was good in parts but not great. The rib-eye was tasteless and served with an over-dominant chilli sauce (the menu... More
