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.
Sunday Lunch at the Gregory, Harlaxton. The food, wine and service was very good, and really good value. I have eaten at the Gregory on a number of occasions and would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.
Lovely food, good sized helpings. Started with Ham hock tourrine followed by chicken breast and Lyonaise potatoes. Service a little slow but not enough to detract from the lovely food. Prices moderate. Surroundings very pleasant. Good parking.
We went for Sunday lunch. Menu has improved from last time, options other than just Sunday roasts. Bread served before meal is now a mini loaf, far too much. Food average, service okay. Lacked atmosphere today, maybe it was just because it was quieter than normal.
