Open seven days a week from breakfast until late, Catlins Traditional Restaurant in Grantham offers a sublime dining experience. The talented kitchen staff work exceptionally hard to crate thoughtfully presented traditional English dishes with a European twist.
Set inside a beautiful Grade II listed building right on Grantham High Street, Catlins bursts with character. Old wooden beams keep the vibe traditional and cosy, whilst decorative table pieces and wine bottles add a rustic feel. In the winter, the log fire is lit, creating a warm glow for guests to enjoy while they dine. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and extremely passionate about the food they serve.
The extensive menu features the finest quality meat and poultry, and the freshest seafood for miles. Catlins’ head chef takes great pride in sourcing all of his beef from a local butcher who rears the cattle himself. Starter dishes range from the beautifully presented antipasti board, to grilled scallops with prosciutto ham, and succulent baked peppers filled with Bramley apple and feta.
Catlins’ main courses are guaranteed to add that extra-special element to every diners’ experience. One of the standout dishes is the Steak Fondue: tender slices of beef fillet, which you can cook yourself in hot oil. Other popular dishes include the Lobster Thermidor, the duck breast in soy and honey sauce, or the unique Portuguese speciality dish, seafood cataplana. If you really can’t decide on which delectable meat to choose, you can also opt for the Parilhada de Carne: a meat platter piled high with steak, chorizo, pork belly, ribs, chicken and lamb chops.
No matter how much you and your dining companions indulge, make sure you all have room left for dessert, since Catlins offers an exquisite selection. To round off the evening, diners can sample fine cheeses accompanied with something from the restaurant’s wine selection, or sip on an expertly-made cappuccino.
