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.

Best burgers in Leicestershire!

We stopped for lunch whilst cycling around Leicestershire and had what can only be described as the best burgers we have ever tasted! I am looking forward to a further visit and would recommend this pub without reservation.

Firstly, I do not know the owners (unlike dubious reviews of some restaurants) , I am however a complete foodie and amateur chef. This was my first visit to the Tollemache, after reading several reviews on here - surely it couldn't be that good, could it? Wow, this is exactly what a country pub should be, warm, inviting, great ales... More

Well to start with I really didn't know what to choose. I opted for the Wild mushroom Pasta which was amazing!!. Steve had Fish and Chips which was good too. Puddings were wonderful. I had Forest fruit roulade and Steve had Baileys cheesecake, both scrummy:). Service was delightful and plenty of smiles. Lovely atmosphere. Will recommend to all and return... More

Popped in by chance whilst passing on a Saturday afternoon having never visited before or read any review. Looked very inviting from the outside - a typical country pub/restaurant that I expected to be a cut above the chain establishments - we weren't disappointed!! The place looks and feels like it may have been refurbished recently, but anyhow still retains... More

Absolutely fantastic! I visited with my family for an evening meal, we were welcomed in the bar by the manageress and then escorted to a table in the restaurant. The waitress was attentive, polite and friendly! We each had a main and dessert, which were to die for! The mains were filling, and well portioned for a great price too!... More

It's a real shame, that a beautiful building with heritage can be reduced to an Urban bistro, the interior is totally out of keeping with the exterior. The welcome is lack lustre at best. The food was average and overpriced.

Visited this lovely pub restaurant with another couple for dinner on a Friday evening, the restaurant and bar were comfortably busy, promoting a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Upon seating, homemade bread was offered, which was absolutely delicious. As a table we ordered a variety of dishes both from the Al A Carte and Bar menus, all arrived well presented, and... More

We stopped off for a drink on our way through and really enjoyed the welcome. The garden was pretty, dogs, children and family all enjoying the chilled out setting. We didn't eat as it was Sunday lunch only but we will be back.

Our first visit to this establishment after seeing an advert in the local village magazine, it has just been taken over by new owners who have added a very welcoming feel to the venue. The service was tentative (but not in your face) and friendly making the dining experience very enjoyable. The food was fresh local produce and prepared to... More

Popped in for a quick bite at lunchtime. New tenants, since last visit, who we knew personally. Helpful staff. Good polite service. Nice food. Fair price. Sadly, almost deserted on a Saturday lunch-time
