We arrived on a week day evening at 7pm to see if by chance there was a table free. At this point there were plenty but as the evening wore on several more tables were then occupied. The pub was recommended to us by a bar steward at the hotel we were staying at nearby and we were very pleased... More

We fortunately stumbled across this venue whilst looking for a place to eat. The hotel we we were staying in left a lot to be desired and hence we ventured out - so pleased we did and found this lovely pub. The food was excellent and the service provided by both Georgie and Sarah was outstanding. The pub is highly... More

Having visited this pub numerous times since the new owners took over in 2014, I can quite easily say that this is by far my favourite pub in the area. I have not once been disappointed by the food or service, and will always recommend the Tolly to anybody who asks. The food is absolutely outstanding for a country pub... More

Four of us visited on Good Friday and we were all agreed that we all had four GREAT meals. The ladies had the 'Sweet Chilli Mediterranean Lasagne' and us men had steaks. The Chef told us he had sourced a new butcher and we were certainly not disappointed in the least with the quality of the meat. The ladies were... More

Recommended to us by our hosts for an inexpensive dinner. Greeted by the friendliest staff you could hope for, they were just opening up for the evening. Food came out quickly and perfectly cooked, and the same friendly service continued. Some of the best onion rings I've eaten for a long time to accompany a classic burger, and what relief,... More

The Tollemache Arms is situated 4 miles off the A1 in the beautiful village of Buckminster, between Colsterworth and Melton Mowbray on the B676.The bar is open to everyone, their muddy feet and their dogs! Tasty bar nibbles such as home roasted mixed nuts, olives, pickled eggs and much more are prepared by the Chef and a selection of draught beers and local ales are changed regularly - all to be enjoyed in front of a cosy fire during the cold winter months! The dining room offers intimacy and the menu offers pub classics or sandwiches at lunchtime as well as bar snacks and other dishes to push your palate. The library is ideal for coffee mornings, meetings and an area for the children, with toys available. It is also popular during the evenings for pre-dinner/party drinks and after dinner coffees. We have a large garden with plenty of space for eating outside and can cater for private parties, weddings, christenings or any other events, either within the pub or in a marquee outside in the garden.The Tollemache Arms offers a relaxed, cosy atmosphere with friendly chat and we look forward to welcoming you on your visit.
