Four of us visited on Good Friday and we were all agreed that we all had four GREAT meals. The ladies had the 'Sweet Chilli Mediterranean Lasagne' and us men had steaks. The Chef told us he had sourced a new butcher and we were certainly not disappointed in the least with the quality of the meat. The ladies were... More

Recommended to us by our hosts for an inexpensive dinner. Greeted by the friendliest staff you could hope for, they were just opening up for the evening. Food came out quickly and perfectly cooked, and the same friendly service continued. Some of the best onion rings I've eaten for a long time to accompany a classic burger, and what relief,... More

We visited Stapleford for one night and stopped here on the way for lunch. We had some gorgeous very reasonably priced Paninis (highly recommend the chicken and chorizo!) but the most notable thing about the pub was the lovely member of staff who couldn't do enough for us from the moment we walked in the door! I'm gutted I didn't... More

I'm one of a small group of friends that meet weekly to dine and socialise at The Tollemache, Buckminster. We are always warmly greeted by all, it has a lovely, inviting atmosphere and the staff really make it. The 'specials' on Wednesdays change weekly and we've really enjoyed the variety offered; always gorgeous and incredible value for money. The Sunday... More

We had a family evening meal for my daughters 19th birthday. The chef and staff had gone out of their way to ensure all our needs are met, as in our party we have a vegan and a gluten free. All the food was beautifully cooked and well presented. Vegan desert was chocolate brownie which was delicious , they very... More

A Valentine's Day romantic dinner for two calls for something really special – and that's what this place is. The warm, inviting ambiance, the excellent food (lamb was the best I've had for a long time), the friendly and really efficient service – all faultless. Loved it.

We met up with old friends for lunch. A warm welcome awaited us. We spent a leisurely time over a superb lunch in the company of our friends. Staff were welcoming and attentive. We have already agreed to return when we next meet our friends.

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.
