South Reston is a village in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A157 road 5 miles (8.0 km) south-east from the town of Louth.

The civil parish of South Reston was enlarged by the abolition of the parish of Castle Carlton in 1936. Today both villages form part of Reston civil parish (where the population is included).[1]

South Reston parish church was dedicated to Saint Edith; it was declared redundant by the Diocese of Lincoln in 1980, and demolished in 1982.[2] The 15th-century octagonal font remains in the churchyard, as a sundial, and is Grade II listed.[3]

The Hall is a Grade II listed brick farmhouse dating from the 17th century.[4]

South Reston school was built in 1858 and survived long enough to celebrate its centenary.[5]

There is also a Methodist church and a public house, the Waggon and Horses.
