Gregs Bistro, Southampton

Greg’s Bistro, a lovely little place in this little southern town that is small and perfectly formed. Yes, there is not a lot of activity here in terms of things to do. You have the major boat show, a university, a museum, some historical buildings and some great green spaces, but you can clock that all in a day or two.

During a recent visit to the Southampton Boat show, I took it upon myself to google and check out website reviews to see where the best places were to eat. I have a habit of doing this as I am a total foodie. The  high street chains are great for familiarity, but taking risks is what we should all do.

Greg’s was just opening at 12pm, so we were the only guests seated which was fine. It was a chance to for us to stuff our faces before we got on the train back to London. The menu itself is very structured with steaks, seafood and good wholesome sounding food. The reviews in general were great, so it was a must-do. I shook things up and opted for something very different in their pan-fried seabass with garlicky potatoes. I had a side of sautéed mushrooms which was a selection of wild. Sam Vanilla had the creamy tomato pasta with chicken. It looked delicious. Overall the food was really great and the service was friendly and relaxed. Apparently this is popular with the locals of a weekend and I can see why. A bit off the beaten track and definitely for those who love good food.
