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.
The food was good although lacked a little imagination especially regarding the vegetarian dishes. Service was pleasant enough but a little slow and intermittent at times. The Gregory itself has a relaxing atmosphere and staff were friendly.
The meal was reasonable, not poor but did not really make you want to want to say I must go there again. The service was really slow and what should have been a quick meal took almost an hour to arrive and no one came to ask if everything was ok once we started our meal. Could be a really nice place if they placed a bit more focus on customer service.
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
