Visited today after recommendation from another friend who funnily had just been there for lunch herself! Bumped into her while awaiting my friends outside the library. Loved the decor and food very nice :) shame about the facilities ( I didn't visit them as after both my friends did and they weren't impressed, I decided to give it a miss!)... More

I have visited many times. Food delicious. Service great. Have a gluten free menu which is very good. Have gluten free cakes and sandwiches which is also fantastic. I would say the only thing that spoils this restaurant is its bathrooms. They are not good or up to standard. There is one toilet for men and women, and one for... More

Thank you for your review. We would like to apologise for the state of our facilities ( There is a notice on both toilet doors saying this) The disabled one is out of order only because we cannot get the toilet clean looking although it is clean so we put it out of order so as not to upset anyone....

A very nice independent cafe offering a good range of coffees teas and food. All of which are competitively priced. It was clean, tidy and nicely decorated. Staff served us with a smile and were very polite Will have to go back again soon.

We booked a table over the phone for a surprise birthday treat for a friend. The staff were very accommodating over the phone and helped me with regards to dietary requirements and recommendations of Afternoon Tea options etc. The food was plentiful and beautiful, and the staff were lovely! The surroundings were very pretty and we had a lovely time.

I met friends In my old home town and we popped in for mid morning tea and cake and we're seated by one of the lovely friendly team. The cake selection looked gorgeous, I eventually plumped for good old Victoria Sponge and it did not disappoint. My friends chose chocolate orange cake, cheesecake and lemon cake, all fabulous and served... More

It is always a delight when in an area not visited for a long time, and requiring a "little treat" somewhere nice to have lunch, well "this is the place!"...it is a good sign when tea rooms are busy and TruleighScrumtious is certainly that. Just along from the historic church in the middle of the parade of shops is well... More
