We eat at The Tollmarche Arms fairly regularly. It has a beautiful location, and the staff is always welcoming. And now during the pandemic, they have worked out a very reassuring scheme. The meal was great as always, and the service was delivered with a smile (even though it was behind a mask). I had the chicken shish kebab which was wonderful and very good for watching the calories. My husband had fish and chips and they were good too. We also split an order of onion rings which were amazing!

Lovely welcome and service from professional and helpful staff. Great Covid measures in place. Super menu and knowledgeable staff who could answer any questions. The wine list was very well priced, great gins and the expresso martinis were fabulous. Food was delicious and really good portions and presentation. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

A warm welcome. Hand sanitizers and barcode for track and trace. Tables spaced well apart. Face masks to be worn apart from when seated at a table.
Nice menu. Our reservation was the last time allocation for the day so no surprise the Sunday Roast Beef dinner was sold out. They replaced it with pork belly which I had and my husband had the chicken. Very large serving with roast potatoes, 4 different vegetables and Yorkshire pudding. I wished I hadn’t had a starter. A little disappointed with the overcooked Yorkshire pudding.
My only disappointment was that they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays at the moment.

Lovely pub, lovely service, lovely food, but currently only 2 hour sitting and we were not made aware of this when booking so felt rushed out at the end of our meal.

A little apprehensive as the last visit was not so good but it has I believe changed hands since and it was a few years ago. We had the chicken shish kebab skewer with tabouleh salad which was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff couldn’t have been more attentive or courteous. In these unusual times the ‘welcome’ you get when arriving is not always so welcoming! I have been quite upset by how rude some staff can be when you arrive somewhere..... you wish you hadn’t bothered going. But not here! It was overall a most enjoyable evening. Top marks and thank you! We shall definitely be coming back.

First time at The Tollemache. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff surprised us with desert on a board with a candle and happy birthday on it.
Overall food was excellent and served quickly. Staff very attentive. Good Covid measures in place. Will definitely come again.

We had never visited before and booked after a google search looking for a lunch venue in the area. Everyone was very welcoming and explained the COVID rules, encouraged us to ‘check in’ on the NHS app and showed us to the hand sanitiser.
We had some bread and olives to nibble on while we were choosing and ordered the plant burger and the chicken burger. The triple cooked chips were amazing. So often triple cooked chips are too oily but these were crisp on the outside, soft in the middle and so delicious!! And a very generous portion, I couldn’t finish mine.
We were the first through the doors when they opened so it was very quiet at first but it slowly filled up over the time we were there and all the tables were nicely spaced out to keep everyone COVID secure.
We would definitely visit again when in the area.

Warm welcome on arrival. Reasonably priced food and drink. Very generous portions. Will definitely be visiting again.
On leaving the premises it was pitch black outside and very unsafe especially being so close to the road.

Had the chicken shish kebab for the second time in 2 weeks today and really enjoyed it. Portion was a little smaller than last time (of chicken) but very tasty. Made up for chicken with a portion of sweet potato chips as a side.

We were booked to visit the Tolly the day after the lockdown started. Finally got to go back again, food and service were as great as ever. Covid proceedures were as good as any we've seen, well done.
Great to be back.
