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 had arranged with relatives to meet at the Restaurant, lovely place and very relaxing, our party really enjoyed our meal. The only problem we had was that they do not have a disabled toilet which was a problem for my husband, it would be nice if they could install one as I am sure other disabled people would love...

Just shows Trip Advisor isn't always right. The Tollemache is down in the mid-20s out of pubs in the Grantham area, where as the place I went to last month was No.6! The Tollemache, however, stands head and shoulders above it. The welcome was pleasant and felt very genuine. Good real-ales behind the bar, and a nice comfy seat to... More

The staff were so friendly and helpful, the food was the best I have had and the locals in this gorgeous village pub were so welcoming. Thankyou Tollemache Arms for a perfect Sunday lunch and afternoon. If you do get a chance and you are in the... More

A lovely venue to meet up with family, superb food loved the fried halloumi and the rack of lamb was very tender and beautifully pink. We were all too full for dessert but I had a great mocha instead of a coffee amazing flavour and decaf available too a definate plus for me although double espresso (fully leaded!) was my... More

what a great place to eat. Excellent atmosphere and reasonably priced food with a varied menu. Tables nice and clean. Food arrived promptly and was lovely and hot. Would have liked a choice of beans rather than peas but this is nit picking.

The food was good value, tasty and nicely presented. The service was fairly good though perhaps a little slow. So, why not a top grade? The NOISE. The decor is 'hard surface'. So the noise from other diners, the musac ( not music) and the fan buzzing from the kitchen - was a real challenge. Basically, we could hardly hear... More
