We visited last week with our relatives. The food was really tasty, plentiful and well presented. We all cleared our plates. I feel I must give a special mention about the Chocolate Marquise. It was absolutely delicious, and that's from a confirmed chocoholic. All the flavours went well together and as for the sweet mint jelly, beautiful. I just loved... More

This was a lovely setting. Plenty of room to park and a very warm welcome on arrival. We'd booked a table although it was quite quiet when we arrived - it got busier and busier (a good sign!). The food was clearly home-cooked and the majority of us chose the burger option A good decision as it was probably the... More

Attended for Sunday lunch with a group of family and friends with children ranging from 2-10 and quite a large group. Service was fantastic, bringing menus out to eh beer garden so we could mull it over in the sun. When requested, they offered meals that were not usually on the Sunday menu also. The children's mains were brought along... More

We stopped in for lunch, but quite late (about 14.30 on a Friday). We can only agree with the majority of reviews here already. A very clean and welcoming place. My wife ordered the scampi, which was given a ten out of ten for taste and appearance. I ordered the Tollemache burger, which l can only say; you've got to... More

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.
