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.
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.
Staff are all very pleasant and welcoming. Food was served in good time & was good value for money. It was pie night which was £9.95 for pie mash & gravy & a choice of a drink included. There was also the main menu & 7th heaven menu to choose from too. 7th heaven is a choice of meals for£7.99 each, also very good value. Thank you
Had a lovely meal at The Gregory & the service was great. The staff were very pleasant and helpful thank you.
The restaurant was busy but the staff were very pleasant & attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Food delicious as always would highly recommend.
Excellent food and service, took advantage of the early bird offer where certain meals are cheaper, check out what night you go as each evening has a different theme!
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.
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.
Disappointing first time at The Gregory with friends. Lots of space. Nicely decorated and well presented environment. But doesn't meet the image projected on their website for fine dining - falls a long way short - more like a good pub. Served by a school lad who was very shy and out of his depth - hardy what to expect from fine dining. Two other gents served drinks and took the order didn't seem all that interested. asked for the gluten free info but never received it. No notes on menu choices about GF options. If its fine dining your looking there are many better options. If the pricing was more in line with normal pubs then this would be an okay place for dinner. Poor value for money. Shame as it looks nice from outside and website is great.
The Gregory is a lovely place to eat with a great menu and very kind and friendly staff. They look after my elderly parents very well and provide good quality vegan food on request for me. Recommend highly.
The Gregory is half way between our friends and ourselves which is why we chose it but we were plesantly surprised by the friendly service and good choice of food. We will book again.
The Gregory has great food and great service in a charming setting. The Sunday lunch offerings were varied to suit all appetites, and the meals were presented with style. Will return!
