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

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.

We found the Tollemache Arms by searching for dog friendly places nearby. We were delighted by our choice, as the food was excellent and very nicely presented. The... More

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.
