The Tobie Norris

A charming pub in Stamford, Lincolnshire

We don’t like to brag, but the Tobie Norris is a multi-award winning pub offering delicious food, real ale and fine wine in the gorgeous historical town of Stamford. Our building dates back to the rule of Edward Longshanks and the Hammer of the Scots (or King Edward I for short!) in 1280 and it was later owned by a bell-maker and made into a bell foundry, which funnily enough is where we got our name: Tobie Norris was that very bell-maker!

This enchanting pub in Stamford combines the quirky and the traditional all at once...

With three floors and seven rooms for you to explore, the Tobie Norris is famous for its lovingly restored building. We even have original timber beams that use absolutely no nails!

In typical KNEAD style, the Tobie Norris’ menu reflects the pub surroundings. With a few good ol’ traditional pub dishes, our chef’s whip up some quirkier meals too. You can tuck in to a signature stonebaked KNEAD pizza, lamb from our Tallington farm or even just a good old Ploughman’s.

And whilst you’re at it, why not wash it down with one of our expert-picked ales? Or perhaps you would like to choose from our impressive selection of wines?

We would love for you to pop by and visit the Tobie Norris. After all, it is a Stamford pub not to be missed!

Our child policy

The Tobie Norris is an old fashioned pub within a 13th Century building with uneven floors, narrow passageways & open fires therefore we cannot accommodate prams, pushchairs & car seats and we do not supply highchairs.

Our menu is family friendly and our guests are welcome to share but we do not offer a children's menu. We do want to be a family pub and welcome well behaved children until 8pm, however, we would also ask that they are not brought into the bar areas.

After 8pm the Tobie Norris is over 18's only.

We feel this is fair to all parties, many thanks for your cooperation.

Say hello to our managers!

Gemma Rogerson is Manager and James Keats is our Assistant Manager.
