Description: 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.

We found out that one of the chefs from Eden in Grantham has set up out in Buckminster and went out to enjoy his cooking and see how the pub was going. The interior was light and airy, giving a sense of contemporary space to an old building. Arriving at about 4pm we weren't sure if we'd get food, we... More

My husband and i visited the Tollemache Arms this evening for a meal. We were not disappointed. We both decided to try the Venison which was beautifully cooked and well presented. The choice of the menu, which we were informed has just recently changed was excellent so much so that we could not decide on which desert to try. After... More

A lovely country pub, warm and inviting from the road. There is ample parking. The bar and restaurant area are well presented and recently decorated. There was a roaring log fire in the bar area, the bar served local real ales which were well kept. I attended the venue with my wife. We chose from a recently updated a la... More

This location at first looks like just a pub in middle of nowhere but it truly is a hidden jewel. We came here for what turned out to be a beautifully presented meal that was mouth watering too. We had our 2 year old daughter with us and the staff were so helpful and accommodating to her food needs. We... More

Stopped off here with friends on the way back from Melton Mowbray for a bar meal. The place is under new management which was obvious as it has been totally refurbished with new decor and lighting since the last time we visited. Really decent local ales in front of the open fire - It doesn't get much better than this... More

Having driven past this beautiful building so many times & wanted to experience the warmth inside I visited with a good friend for a drink in a cosy pub - We were so disappointed! Having skated to the door across a car park where no effort had been made to clear the ice, we walked past the open cleaning cupboard... More

We are sorry that you have had a negative experience at the Tollemache Arms on your recent visit and wish you would have approached one of the management team at the time who could have offered assistance. First and foremost both the bar and restaurant where actually closed when you arrived and you accessed the building by an unlocked rear... More

Thank for taking the time to post your positive review. Due to the Christmas menus during December, we have had to limit the a la carte menus so not to overburden the kitchen. Look out for our exciting new January 2015 a la carte menu which I'm sure you will find different and extensive. Keep an eye on our website... More

The Tollemache Arms hss recently changed hands, and it was a pleasure to return to the village where I was born, and to a building where I have spent many evenings in the past.

A family run business that certainly delivers...... excellent service, excellent food & setting. The food was fantastic and presented very well at a respectable price. Freshly renovated to a high standard this place certainly shows it's promise. This is located in Buckminster and worth the effort to drive to. Thank you all.
