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.

Cheap, and actually quite nice

Went at lunchtime with a friend. It's quite big and plenty of space. Pub grub is very reasonable and a cheap price. Always displayed nice, and doesn't look cheap. Alcohol and non alcoholic drinks very reasonable. I gave it a star less only because the toilet is a long way away, wish it was nearer.

Last night we visited The Tollemache with friends as we live down the road. Food was amazing as always, generous portions and friendly staff. Fish cakes were to die for. Totally recommend to anyone

Food was overcooked, Everything served on wooden boards and slates, NO sauce on prawn cocktail, Duck was Chewy, Caesar salad also missing sauce had croutons which were soggy and spongy, Fish cakes large and dry to eat, Coleslaw looked like it had been left uncovered, Chef tried to dismiss my problems as he said nobody else was complaining? but swiftly...

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your visit with us on Saturday night. I dined here earlier on that evening with family members and thought the food was amazing. Having spoken with the restaurant team I am puzzled though as to why you did not bring this catalogue of serious complaints to the attention of the serving staff... More

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...
