The Tollemache Arms Refurbishment

Who are we?


The Tollemache Arms, better known to locals as The Tolly, a beloved gathering place for locals, families and friends alike, is in need of your support. Since taking on The Tolly in 2015, Joe and his team have poured their heart and souls into this pub and have gained some incredible titles along the way including National Pub & Bar’s regional winner for East Midlands, Gastropub of the Year at Northamptonshire’s Food & Drink Awards and the BII’s Licensee of the Year Award - just to mention a few.

The Tolly is steeped in history, named after the Honourable Hugh Tollemache, who was Rector of the Parish for 58 years in the 1800s. A later Rector Reverend Horace Atkins objected to his parishioners attending the pub on a Sunday so he took over the pub, closing on Sundays. His congregation is believed to have increased tenfold and now we want to give The Tolly an even more colourful future.


So, what are we doing?

This one-of-a-kind pub is in need of a refurbishment - she has been used well over the last 10 years. Unfortunately, the rising cost of living has made it impossible for us to tackle this challenge alone. We need your support to breathe new life into this historic gem, ensuring it remains a vibrant hub for good times, great food, and lasting memories.

By contributing to our crowdfunding campaign, you'll be helping to preserve a place where memories are made, friendships are forged, and laughter echoes through the walls. Every pledge, no matter how small, will make a difference in revitalizing our beautiful pub.


What's our plan?

Giving The Tolly a new lease of life, making her shine like the star she is and upgrade her in every area. So, from toilets, to a new improved bar area to give you maximum comfort and an upgraded restaurant area that will make your experience with us the best ever.

We can’t wait to see what more we can achieve after the refurbishment of our wonderful pub. The Tolly will be bigger, brighter and better than ever as we strive to become the best pub, in not just the county but the UK.
Join us in raising a glass to the heart of our community. Together, we can make a lasting impact and look forward to the future of The Tolly. Let's come together and show that when we unite, anything is possible.
