We had a very enjoyable meal. I haven't eaten in the evening before and although a smaller menu than before , the specials board used to be packed I decided to try the Rumours burger. When it came I was a little disappointed to find it had mustard in the bun also a mustard type dressing on the salad and not being a fan of mustard I managed to eat around it. But I did actually mentioned to our server when he cleared the table that I would have preferred not to have had any dressing etc. he then came back and offered either a free pudding or no charge on the burger which was very surprising and so I enjoyed a delicious sticky toffee pud!!
Really helpful and friendly staff. Very efficient and attentive. Will def go back. Also very good mojitos x
This certainly wasn't our best experience at Rumour. The staff appeared unattentive and bare belly's at the table is not really what you want! Also, the food lacked the creativity and tastes we've had before... please don't let this good venue in Totnes become just another mediocre place to eat. Keep it special and consistent.
Lovely meal. Elderflower gin was delicious.
Really helpful staff, I took 7 11 year olds for a birthday party and they couldn’t do enough for us. Lovely pizza and they kept our birthday cake overnight to produce after the meal- great!!
All round excellent. Only problem was the tables are crammed in and it’s really awkward trying to get in and out, loo etc!
We had an enjoyable evening. Our starters and mains were terrific. However I ordered the gooseberry and elderflower fool for dessert which was, frankly, disgusting. However, the waitress apologised and took this item from our bill so only a minor blip really. We have eaten here many times and will continue to do so.
Great atmosphere, tasty, perfectly cook food. Lovely staff. Very welcoming & unobtrusive. Unfortunately, two of the three fish dishes ( I don’t eat meat) were not available & many of the wines were not available, due to change over? However, this did not detract from our very enjoyable evening. There is a wide bar choice of exciting drinks.
It was Friday night, so it was very busy. We arrived on the dot of 6pm (our booked time) and spotted our reserved table as we entered. After standing just inside the doorway for a few moments we sat down without speaking to any staff as everyone seemed busy, and no-one spoke to us. Although several members of staff looked in our direction, it was a full 10 minutes before anyone approached us with menus. It was not our best visit to the restaurant - service was very slow, 4 out of 5 of us ordered pizzas and they all arrived burnt, and consequently very tough to cut and chew. The waitress seemed totally perplexed by our dessert order, which was mainly ice cream, and even though we repeated it several times, it was wrong when it arrived. This was meant to be a celebration of the end of my daughter's exams, but it was not a very relaxing evening.
Great atmosphere, food and service was great
Very good meal in very pleasant surroundings. Very good staff.
We waited an hour for our main course and when it arrived the meat was cold. We were very disappointed. We were given a discount on our bill. Shame as it had been recommended by a friend.
A trip down to Devon wouldn't be complete without enjoying a meal at Rumours. A family favourite
Slow service, good quality food.
