award winning

I can see why the restaurant has won awards. Some of our group found their food a bit average and the serving staff a little brusque but overall it was well worth it

We Took advantage of our daughter being away and decided to go out for a spur of the moment dinner! There are a few good restaurants in Lincoln, but we hadn't tried the Reform. They were busy for a Monday night but managed to fit us in. Our starters and mains were very nicely prepared and served, we both enjoyed... More

Tuesday lunchtime . . . we are the only people there ! A rather bland room, no pictures, decorated in 'tasteful' greys. No character though. Food was OK, nothing wrong with it, but . . . well , yes, rather bland. Too safe, not imaginative enough. For this sort of price, I expect more these days. 'Folk's, 'guys' 'no problem'... More

This is an aspiring fine-dining restaurant that has a lot going for it, but does not quite make the grade. As it is in an old classroom with suitably high windows to prevent its inmates from being distracted by the outside world, thus saving them from a caning, do not go there for the view. For those who suffered such... More

As a birthday present, I was given a lunch voucher for two to the Reform Restaurant, so my wife and I had lunch there recently. The service from the waiters was very welcoming and helpful when considering menu choices. The food selection on the two-course menu was quite comprehensive, particularly for a lunch time menu. If the menu was extensive,... More

Four of us had a 2 course (starter and main) lunch with Groupon vouchers today. The young male waiters were efficient and the food was good. My only complaint was that YET AGAIN, a good establishment has what passes for music nowadays pouring out of the speakers when there is abolutely no need for it and despite a tactful hint... More

This was a spur of the moment thing and worked perfectly. The place is understated, neat and tidy without being over simple or over flash. The staff were attentive and friendly yet still professional. The food was simply excellent, well presented, attractive and delicious. Braised blade of beef melted in the mouth, reasonably priced wine list and extras. On top... More

Blingless, very nice restaurant. Excellent greeting and service throughout. The set lunch was delicious with plenty of choice, and according to my wife's extensive pudding knowledge the chocolate and pistachio marquise was very good! Back soon.

We were staying in the Castle Hotel and decided to dine in the in-house restaurant. Normally, we avoid hotel restaurants as we often find them a bit stuffy and dull. Not on this occasion! We had pressed butter poached chicken and sweet and sour squid for starters, followed by blackened cajun cod for both our main courses, accompanied by an... More
