Having established The Chequers at Woolsthorpe by Belvoir as one of the premier dining spots in the area, proprietors Jo and Justin Chad have also taken over this handsome 19th-Century roadside inn. The Gregory has been sympathetically refurbished in order to combine modern flair with due reverence to traditional features. There is an attractive bar stocked with an extensive range of spirits, draught ales and lagers, exposed brick walls and beams, a summer courtyard garden to enjoy in clement weather, and a centrepiece fire crackling in the grate in colder months.

This historical building grabbed our attention immediately, the exterior painted a cool white with elegant signage, the interior invitingly lit. We were greeted warmly and soon settled down to sample a 'Winter Pimms' in front of the fire (a reviving hot mix of Pimms, brandy, ginger beer and squeeze of lemon) and began to read the seasonal menu, which includes many locally sourced ingredients.

For our starters we opted for mussels of the day - with plenty of warm fresh bread to mop up the mariniere sauce - and a tangy goat's cheese and red onion tart. We followed this with succulent honey-roasted pork belly served with p e rfect crackling, Parmentier potatoes, buttered spinach and rich thyme gravy, and beer-battered fish of the day. The haddock was moist and meaty, served with a generous portion of chips and fresh minted peas. To accompany our main courses we sipped a couple of glasses of Black Shiraz from the Breton vineyard (the best house wine I have enjoyed in years). We also relished the sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream, and the apple and cinnamon crumble with custard.

Those who have enjoyed The Chequers over the years can expect the same high standards at The Gregory: excellent service, fantastic offers, memorable fine dining and a wonderfully warm atmosphere.
