Very good without being great

A very good meal and service, though just lacking that little extra to take it into the 5 star category. Lovely starters, and main courses too, though the service was a little over eager bringing the mains as the starter plates were cleared - not sure about you but I like a few minutes between... read more

We had a dinner meal here. My wife had the pea soup and I had the Orzo vongole as starters. The pasta was average and the clams did not change that. For entrees I had the polenta souffle and my wife had the roast chicken. She said the chicken was okay. The shuffle was a small pudding which was expensive... More

Just enjoyed an excellent Sunday Lunch at Reform! Had a mix of contemporary and traditional dishes lamb,chicken and beef well cooked ,flavoured and presented! Good value for money at £15:95 for 2 courses. Extensive wine list but we chose to have a few pints of refreshing Rieglar. Service was relaxed and friendly. If you fancy innovative food that offers something... More

We ate here on the Sunday night where we stayed at the hotel over the Bank holiday weekend. My husband had guinea fowl spring rolls, rib eye steak ( he said it was the best steak he had ever had) and ginger parkin with rubarb and ginger ice-cream. I had beetroot three ways, hake and a coffe with fudge. Three... More

We were staying at the Castle Hotel, where the Reform is located, and decided to try it. The décor is a little monochrome for my taste, but pleasant enough. The service was exemplary, performed entirely by a single waiter who was efficient, friendly and helpful. Not sure that everybody likes to be addressed as ‘guys’ though: it doesn’t bother us....

Very impressive service from arrival to departure, all the food was interesting and very enjoyable and just a wonderful evening. Appears pricey, but actually quite reasonable and the setting just made it a great occasion.

Have used Reform for lunch quite a few times in last couple of years. Usually meet with a group of friends but have also used for it family meals. The friendly service and food quality has been consistently good since we have been going there. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and the staff have always been helpful and pleasant.... More

We went to Reform when we couldn't get into a recommendation for our wedding anniversary. We chose it over another restaurant whose menu seemed limited - I'm don't eat meat but I do eat fish. Of the three fish mains at Reform, one being the special, two had meat added to them. The monkfish came with Parma ham and the... More

Have been for lunch here many times and never been disappointed. Last visit was on the 28th March when we took some friends from Staffordshire. They loved it as well. Excellent food and service.
