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.
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
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.
Food was excellent. Very reasonable prices. Staff attentive and very polite. Enjoyable dining experience in very nice surroundings. Disappointed with the garden. Not well kept and outdoor seating has seen better days. A shame as a lovely courtyard area but neglected. Ladies toilets needs some areas of work. These 2 areas let the place down
Glad to have The Gregory as our 'local', the food this lunchtime was good as always. The service was a little slow today. Definitely worth a visit.
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.
Awful food. Used to love The Gregory but they've obviously changed chefs. I had rare rib eye steak and the rare meat was so pale it looked like pork and even tasted more porky than steak. It definitely wasn't a rib eye as there was no fat/marbling. I complained and was charged for a rump instead of rib eye steak and got a couple of drinks free. After I complained the Chef decided the steaks weren't the usual quality and contacted the suppliers. If the Chef was professional enough he wouldn't have served steak in the first place if they weren't good quality rather than wait for someone to complain. The children had the house burgers and they were very dry and tasteless so we definitely won't go back. Sorry.
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.
Friendly helpful staff, plesant atmosphere, well laid out tables with plenty of room. Our visit was on Fathers Day and had a special menu on, fairly good choice at reasonable prices. Well cooked food. Will return next time we are in the area.
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.
