Squaremeal Review of Reform Social and Grill ?

“Like a gentlemen’s club, but in a good way”, observed one reader who loved the dark ambience of this cool hotel dining room with its varnished woodwork, chunky red leather banquettes, mirrors and geometric tiled floor. The masculine feel is also reflected in the all-day menu, with hearty, uncomplicated dishes making good use of native ingredients – witness Lyons treacle-cured salmon with horseradish and potato salad, braised ox cheeks with real-ale gravy or roast breast of buttermilk chicken with coronation sauce. Buccleuch steaks, Barnsley chops and lobster burgers are hits from the Josper grill, while sticky toffee pudding with ice cream is a typically traditional dessert. The wine list is well worth a look, Sunday lunch is a big occasion and there are decent fixed-price lunchtime deals during the week. Reform also does a very British afternoon tea.

I went with a friend to Reform Social and Grill for a long overdue catchup over dinner. We were greeted by the friendly bar and restaurant team, and settled down in one of the comfortable booths. We both plumped for the Steak and Lobster burger offer (£16). The 10oz “Buccleuch estate” Hanger steak & chips came with half a bottle of Malbec; and the Lobster Burger & Chips with a half bottle of Chardonnay. The Malbec had great berry notes and the Chardonnay was light and citrusy. The main of steak...

Good value but Oh Dear..

Jul 2013

Very nicely refurbished in club style, but atmosphere ruined by awful, inappropriate music which is too loud. Staff very pleasant, but surprised to be greeted by ‘Have you booked?’ when we were almost the only customers! The special offer steak, chips and wine offer for £12.50 is excellent value; well cooked and presented, but don't bother with the red wine which is barely drinkable. Better to upgrade? So worth going for a good value local lunch, but take your atmosphere with you. For heaven's...

What ho!

by   platinum reviewer (85)

May 2013

Spring! As the first rays of life-giving sun hit your upturned cheeks and the nights recede into long placid evenings with the promise of chilled rose wine. A thousand BBQ's rumble out of garages, the long forgotten, rusty and oil stained armoured vanguard of summer. Spring! A time of salads and green and the lightest of touches. Spring! The perfect time to visit a gentleman's club inspired grill restaurant then… ah. No.. sadly not. I'd had the Reform Social highlighted to me by a number of people...

Does not meet the billing....

by   platinum reviewer (75)

Apr 2013

Four of us took advantage of one of the many offers currently available at this establishment, lured in by the prospect of a “quintessentially British experience”, taking [its] “inspiration from classic British gentlemen’s clubs” as the blurb on their website would have you believe. Oh dear… The bar was, at first glance, not too bad with a clubby welcoming vibe catering for both those lounge lizards who like to perch on stools at the counter and those of us who prefer a more comfy sofa. Service...

Unlimited champagne afternoon tea

by   (1)

Apr 2013

We booked the unlimited champagne afternoon tea for two a couple of weeks back. I had been to one more venue that offered a glass of champagne. This deal was moderately priced at £ 26.50 + service charge at that time. The champagne served was Moutard. I cannot express how happy they made us, I had to change my time once and the staff over the phone were warm and pleasant. They have not misled anyone regarding the “free flowing champagne” offer, the staff ensured that our glasses were filled without...

I visited Reform last month with my girlfriend, right after they opened. We had cocktails at the bar before our meal, I had The Great Green Ruby, my girlfriend had the Boyo, both were wery nice and refreshing. After our drinks we were shown to our table, a nice corner one. The atmosphere was very lively and the food was absolutely good. My favorite was the Reform Triffle. The waiters were very friendly, polite and the service was brilliant. We will definitely be back!

I visited Reform Social and Grill last month and was pleasantly surprised by the revamp. We had drinks in the hotel bar to start with and the drinks menu did not disappoint. We moved into the restaurant afterwards and were shown to a cosy booth although I assume they would normally be reserved for groups of 4, rather than just 2. Reform gives the impression of a gastro pub but it is has all the attributes of a quality restaurant. Reform had only just finished its ‘soft opening’ and although it was...

    Because I seem to be on a bit of a roll here where brunch is concerned, I have another one for you. I'd probably shoehorn it fully into Sunday Lunch territory but who's complaining, I'm good with either!
