Visited yesterday. 13 family members including 2 youngsters getting together and what a great decision. Excellent service, the food was top notch and plentiful and real value for money. The Gentleman's Tea was not something I had come across before and 5 of our group...opted for that and were more than happy - very tasty scotch eggs and pork pies. Wide variety of sandwich fillings on the classic tea and lovely selection of cakes. Scones were amazing. Constant flow of tea and coffee and plenty of boxes to take home the leftovers!! Absolutely recommend this gem of a place AbsolutlMore

Was recommended to visit this place by a work colleague and thought I would pop in with my wife for breakfast on my day off work. Every member of staff were just fantastic and welcoming. The young man making all of the drinks made one...of the best latte’s I’ve had and all food was cooked to perfection. Fab staff, fab food and a fab atmosphere. Will definitely be returning again!More

I have been here several times and the food and staff are excellent. However, just one things spoils the experience and that is the young man who serves behind the counter. He is very offhand and when we visited at lunchtime on Monday he was...bordering on rude when we said we would like a table for two and he just stated “no, not for half an hour” and just walked away!! Please, please, teach him how to treat customers.More

After a long walk my friend and I wanted to put our feet up a bit, and this wonderful tea room was the perfect spot. Large. airy and light, the staff were quick to greet us with a smile. The owner was very hands on...and chatty which was lovely as well. Chairs and tables were nicely spaced so you didn't feel cramped. Tea is served in proper teapots with china cups and saucers which made it really special. There was a huge selection of cakes, scones and cheesecakes that looked like a dieters idea of torture! My friend went for ginger and orange cake, I had lemon drizzle, both were absolutely delicious. A large slice, moist, the lemon was very zingy which is just want you want from that type of cake. Two pots of tea for two, plus a large cake came to £7 each which I thought was very reasonable. I saw the afternoon tea looked amazing so I think I may have to return - and buy vouchers to my mum's birthday in January! A thoroughly pleasant pit stop.More

We spent a lovely afternoon here for afternoon tea, it was so easy to book and pay over the phone for the table and the staff were so accommodating. Everything was ready for our arrival and they were more than happy to go at our...pace to allow us to have a drink before bringing over our food. We had a mixture of the Classic and Gentlemans tea and oh my! The food was lovely! The mixture of sweet and savory went down a treat and the ladies kindly boxed up for us to take home. Thank you very much Truleigh Scrumptious, we'll certainly be backMore

Visited here with the family, I’m not a coffee and tea kind of person so it was a hot chocolate for me and of course I had to have marshmallows and whipped cream! The hot chocolate was nearly as big as my head but it...was truleigh scrumptious! I also opted for a plain scone with clotted cream and jam! I am so happy they give you the choice of fruit or plain scone and it was served lovely and warm! I would visit here again if I was passingMore

Thank you for your lovely review. Yes admittedly we do get really busy and booking a table definitely avoids disappointment. All our meals are freshly cooked, which can, sometimes, add a little wait but we are so glad you enjoyed your visit and look forward...More

Went there as a last minute thing for a friends birthday lunch. The service, the food, the venue and the menu choices were all brilliant. Staff were so friendly and the venue was spotless. The only downside is that we ate too much as we...couldn't resist the cake afterwards!!More

Just had a wonderful lunch here in a lovely shaded courtyard garden at the rear. The staff were so friendly and helpful as we didn’t want to sit directly in the sun on such a hot day. The drinks order was taken quickly and arrived...with no delay, we were then given plenty of time to read through their menu before deciding what to have. The food was great with good portions and well presented. Unfortunately we didn’t have time for desert or any of the cakes which looked fantastic. Definitely planning to come back for a brunch at some point. A little diamond of a find.More

You can book a room for a party. So I would think it is likely that they do cater for children's tea.
