Harlaxton European, British £££ +100

About The Gregory

The British countryside is filled with attractions, whether they be rolling hills, dense forests or lakes, but for many travellers, a trip into the more rural areas of the country is incomplete without a trip to a proper country pub. The Gregory, just outside Grantham in Harlaxton, is one such establishment, and one that locals in Lincolnshire love. Their food is British in nature but international in outlook, as is their wine list, which features local ales and vino from around the world. Book a table now and head on over to The Drift in Harlaxton, The Gregory, and a proper British feed.

Further Information

When you enter a pub in the British countryside, there are a few things that you’re going to want to see. Rustic buildings are a plus – there’s no recommendation like longevity in a local community – and a warm welcome is also appreciated for those who have made the journey. A great selection of beers and wines, allied to traditional British food is a must, too: so if the country pub you enter is The Gregory in the Lincolnshire village of Harlaxton, you’re in luck. Take a trip to their address on The Drift – just outside Grantham – and make the most of their menu.

The Gregory offers a menu to the Grantham public that is replete with British classics. Fish of the day, braised blade of beef, fillet steak and char-grilled gammon and egg are all there, as are the likes of bangers and mash – locally-sourced, of course – and homemade pies. There are international favourites too, in the form of butternut squash curry and ratatouille tortellini among others, so make a move to The Drift in Harlaxton for a taste of it all. Book a table though, lest ye end up like Mark & Joseph with no room at the inn.

Good lunchtime atmosphere on a Thursday and excellent food. There was a mix up with the order (soup instead of frites with a sandwich) but that was put right with no fuss straight away

This was our second visit to The Gregory. It's reputation drew us there the first time. It is a pleasant environment for a family meal. The food was delicious, the proportions were just right, and the presentation was to a high standard. The staff were welcoming and friendly throughout the duration of our visit.

We like The Gregory but on this occasion my husband had to take his beer back as it didn't taste very good, they replaced it no problem. Then we started eating our food, (sausages & mash) my sausages didn't seem to be cooked enough, they were still pink. The waitress took them back & the chef said they were at the correct temperature but they would cook me some more or cook me something else. I asked for the sausages again but for them to be well done, this time they were much better. We don't normally have a problem at The Gregory, it just must have been an off day they were having.

visited for the first time on Saturday evening and it will not be the last.The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. It all made for a great evening as we met friends who had travelled down from the Lake District and we were not rushed at all although the restaurant was fairly busy.

Beautiful place with a roaring fire, good food but very slow service. Disappointed to find the weekly deals were not being offered for December but were on the website. Big paper menus and candles on the table dont mix, one of ours caught fire, offered a fresh menu but didnt clean up mess from the burnt one and we got burnt fingers putting the fire out as it was flames!! Rethink health and safety there i think.

Brilliant food and atmosphere, good selection of drinks but felt we were a little ignored towards the end of our meal, to the point that one of our party had to leave the table to find a waitress so that we could order desserts. If we hadn't have had to do that I would have given this restaurant a perfect rating

Very good range of options for a lunch time, reasonable priced. Lovely atmosphere and a warm welcome. food was very delicious and obviously cooked to order with fresh ingredients (not left overs form the weekend like you get in some restaurants). overall a very pleasant and delicious lunch

Nice building and room but just a bit shabby - one of the chairs was broken and the others wobbly and had fabric hanging underneath. Friendly service but slightly casual e.g. Having said I wanted a glass of wine I had to ask for a wine list which had to be specially fetched. Limited Sunday lunch menu but the food itself was very good and good value.

It was pie night tonight which means you could order the pie of the night & a drink for £9.95 you could also order off the main menu too. I had the pie, Chicken & ham but they also had Pork sage & onion or a vegetarian option. It was very nice.

Comfortable and very well decorated room. On main road but little noise intrusion and no noise from rest of building despite being above restaurant. Good food. Not impressed with Dualit tea/coffee maker but alternative hot water readily supplied. Also, only one coat hanger provided. Staff friendly and helpful.

Convenient location as the group was staying in Grantham. Warm welcome from the staff and professional service. The stilton panacotta could have been improved with more stilton but the 'pub style meat pie' was superb.

We had a roast chicken dinner which was very nice. The only downside were the roast potatoes, they had obviously been previously cooked & then reheated but not very well. Otherwise everything else was good.

Lovely atmosphere, staff friendly and attentive and most of all food very good. I would have rated them a six but on this occasion only a five because my mashed potatoes were only just warm.
