Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Truffles Tea Room, a highly renowned café/bistro business with over 20 years trading history as Truffles with 4 years in its current location/format.

The thriving tearoom is now being offered for sale due to our clients’ desire to pursue a new career outside of catering.

The business offers an extensive menu which includes the following –


  • Freshly cooked traditional breakfasts
  • Toasted sandwiches
  • Ciabatta, Panini’s, Focaccia, Wraps, Filled Bagels
  • Choice of salads
  • Pies, sausage rolls & pasties
  • Hot & Cold daily specials
  • Homemade buns, scones, pastries & desserts, traybakes
  • Seasonal specials
  • Bean to cup fresh coffees, teas and cold drinks, juices

The business attracts a very loyal customer base with many local retired customers, local retail workers and those passing by.

The unit is fully fitted out to a very high standard and would allow any new buyer the ability to walk straight in and continue trading.

In order to increase the capacity of the business, our clients added a new bakery kitchen (located on the first floor) to focus on the bakery side which proved very popular however due to other working responsibilities had to stop.

Our client admits they run the business to suit their needs and there are several areas any new buyer would be beneficial to add to increase the current Turnover –


  • Extend the current opening hours
  • Add deliveries, online ordering ability
  • Add a new website, more social media presence
  • Apply for and alcohol licence
  • Add a Sunday lunch menu
  • Add an evening bistro menu or fixed price menu option
  • Utilise the unused bakery kitchen for either a wholesale bakery business or separate kitchen to prepare outside catering work
  • Add more hours by new owner to reduce labour costs

Very rarely do businesses of this standard in this area come onto the open market and we therefore strongly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
