Amazing food, gorgeous decor and friendly efficient service. My husband and I both feel that this is an outstanding restaurant.

we were looking forward to a works Christmas party here. We paid the usual price for a Christmas party and so was expecting a nice evening celebrating with colleagues. The food although nice was cold and portioned too small. I think they are trying to be a upmarket restaurant but unfortunately if the portions are that small the food needs... More

Dear Guest, Following a very successful December where we doubled the amount of Christmas parties that we took from last year, I am glad that this is only the second negative review that we have received after serving hundreds of Diners. You cant please everyone. We made all parties aware at time of booking that there was no entertainment offered... More

Had a birthday meal here at the weekend with a small group of girlfriends. Disappointed that when our group asked if anything special was offered to the birthday girl/boy the response was "there are of course lots of other eating establishments you could go to". Perhaps not the best way to handle customer service. Now, as a group we didn't... More

Dear Diner, Our first email from you did in fact enquire after a free meal for the Birthday to which you seemed most surprised when we said we did not in fact do this. I am unsure of how many restaurants do in fact offer this on peoples birthday but from this point on we were clearly never going to... More

I booked a table at The Reform restaurant for my mothers' 90th birthday, and I am so glad I did. The staff were friendly and attentive from the minute we arrived. Service was slick and nicely spaced out and the food was absolutely delicious. I can honestly say the chocolate fondant was one of the best I have tasted. All... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. It is very heartening to read as we have been left a One Star review by another Diner who was also celebrating a Birthday as we did not give away a free meal. I am so glad that you enjoyed your meal and the service we gave and... More

Two friends and I dined here for a pre-Christmas lunch-time treat. Whilst enjoying a drink in the impressive bar area (comfy seating, large windows, beautiful lighting), we considered the menu before moving through to a pleasant dining room. Although several other tables were busy, I was conscious that the three of us were louder than anyone else, and I would... More

The food looked fantastic but unfortunately the taste didn't match, the service was really good, the staff were polite and friendly, I do however feel there is better quality food in lincoln for this premium price

We recently had a meal at the Reform restaurant in the Castle Hotel Lincoln UK, the food and the service was excellent. The menu is almost fine dining with outstanding attention to detail in both presentation and taste. The menu although small had choices to suit most tastes including fish, meat and vegetarian. The wide list was adequate however a... More

We booked a New Year's Eve meal for £60 (plus bought drinks). We felt that it was perhaps a little experimental for such an important occasion, but it was interesting. The wine list was extensive and we had an excellent Chilean red. For starters my partner had a spicy chicken broth which he was disappointed by as it lacked any... More

Went here with 14 other family members for a Christmas lunch. The room was lovely but unfortunately we couldn't all sit around one table. I had the pate which was excellent. My wife had the soup which was very thick which she enjoyed but another member of the group found it a little claggy. For the main I had the... More

Came here for Christmas dinner. The food was excellent but two sprouts does not a Christmas meal make! My starter of broccoli and stilton soup was great but the little island of toasted walnut bread and cranberry butter in the soup was not what i expected and i was disappointed as i had been looking forward to the bread separately....
