    Great welcome, thanks Flo, and quickly shown to our table in a nicely laid out restaurant area of the pub. Not a massive menu, but a good selection of well cooked food; the hake was really good and the boys loved the burgers. Service was excellent thank you Hannah. Took the list of future events and I’m sure we will be back soon

    The online booking system is easy to operate and has prompt confirmation of the booking. this is followed up with a reminder the day before. Table was ready, staff were extremely helpful and provided clear explanation of the menu, what was available and what was not. Service was prompt and courteous and staff made the effort to make us feel welcome.

    Food was greasy and over priced. Not impressed that nothing was done to make amends for two glasses of lemonade that were tipped on two of our guests. We shall not be visiting again.

    As usual the best pub / restaurant in Northamptonshire and surrounding areas. Amazing service, great food and drinks. My only irritation was a Miserable guy behind us who clearly didn’t like dogs being in a restaurant. Our puppy behaved impeccably for his first time at the Tollemarche Arms. Well done to The Tollemarche Arms for allowing well behaved dogs into the restaurant.

    Lovely pub, stayed nearby and booked to eat for Friday and Saturday night - recommend booking as gets very busy! Accommodated 2 friends as extra on Saturday night which was great too! Service very friendly and attentive. It was great to have “proper” staff who cared about you and wanted you to enjoy your time there - which we did! Food was super,and was brought out quite quickly - pleased with our choices, some adjustments happily agreed with staff. Lovely evenings, great ambiance, super foods and drinks, will definitely return when in area and recommend. Keep up the the great standard - no wonder you are busy!

    Warm greeting upon arrival. Location of the table was perfect. The service that we received was welcoming and friendly. The quality of the food was outstanding. Due to there being a small number of people where we was sat and a smaller area it was very easy to clearly hear other people's conversations in depth, I would prefer the backing music to be slightly louder.

    Staff are great - so friendly and efficient. Overall the food is lovely - fish and chips tried and pork belly very good. Onion rings were very oily though. Bang bang cauliflower was delicious! However having a cauliflower starter and a cauliflower main for the vegan options isn’t great. Perhaps a vegan curry option as a main would be nice 🤪We will definitely come back as overall we really enjoyed our visit.
