The Tollemache Arms

2023 marked an extraordinary year for The Tollemache Arms. This beautiful 17th-century thatched pub was honoured as Gastropub of the Year at the Weetabix Northamptonshire Food & Drink Awards 2023. Additionally, it was celebrated as ‘East Midlands Pub & Bar of the Year’ at The National Pub & Bar Awards 2023. The accolades continued with Joe Buckley and Flo Pearce, the driving force behind The Tolly, receiving the UK Licensee of the Year Award from The British Institute of Innkeeping (BII).

When they took over The Tolly in 2015, Joe and Flo aimed to create the perfect pub and this commitment is still very much evident in every detail. The Tolly focuses on championing local produce, with ingredients sourced from Northants neighbours such as Friars Farms, Farrington Oils, Joseph Morris Butchers, F Troop & Son and the very local Warner’s Distillery. Even the coffee is local, Carrara Coffee Roasters are based only 10 miles away! The menu features dishes such as slow-cooked beef bourguignon pie, overnight pork belly, linguini Putanesca, and pan-fried seabass with champ. You can also enjoy some pork crackling with apple sauce while you decide!

The Tolly puts on special menus for notable occasions such as Burns’ Night or Valentine’s Day. They also put a huge amount of energy into their annual 3-day summer ‘Tollyfest’ which promises the best food, the best drinks, the best bands and the best atmosphere!
