Great restaurant amazing food. Lee is an amazing chef!
Lovely food and ambience, friendly efficient and knowledgeable staff, would love to visit more, but live 300 miles away.. Will definitely visit next year.
Always super standards at Rumour
Thank you - we had a such a good meal with you last evening. Everyone said their food was delicious, there was a good choice of drinks available and the staff were friendly and efficient without being intrusive. Our Australian friends particularly liked having local wine from Sharpham. Compliments to your team - hope to eat with you again soon, Gabi
We loved our lunch at Rumour, and it's an interesting menu. A criticism... possibly too much sauce masking, not adding to, the flavours on both the pork (too sweet) and halloumi (too creamy). The rest was delicious.
Been eating here for years and still my favourite place to eat.
Wonderful wonderful wonderful! The food was gorgeous, and vast in options. The service was faultless and fast. The atmosphere was lovely, Rumour certainly attracts a nice crowd.
We had a wonderful evening. I have been coming to rumour for years but this trip was the best so far. The food was outstanding, amazing flavours, cooked to perfection. The service was friendly, welcoming, relaxed but attentive. It is good value for money, a little bit pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. I have been telling everyone what a great meal we had with you. Thanks Rumour, you nailed it!
Really Great to have online booking system. Customer service was great. Only down side was that our group found the food a bit too salty and the halloumi fries came out lukewarm, like they have been sitting there a while. Other than that, it has been very good experience!
Great as ever.
Had a lovely evening. Friendly staff, quick service even tho it was very busy. Will not hesitate to book again if we are in the area. Many thanks
Met some friends for supper. We all enjoyed scrumpy pizza and sides in a fantastic atmosphere. We took advantage of the 2 for £10 deal on pizzas 🍕 Fantastic offer x
Yet another superb meal. LOVE Rumours.
Party of 4 and one meal was later than others. Staff very apologetic though and when food arrived it was delicious,
Excellent as always
We had a lovely meal and the atmosphere was great. One small quibble was that initially we had to sit next to an extremely hot wall heater and were not allowed to move until the next table's reservation did not show up after half an hour.
Unfortunately not our best visit. My mussels had raw garlic in it - which permeated the flavour and left a terrible after taste. My husbands steak was tough and sinewy we suspect it hadn't been rested properly. Normally Rumours is excellent....I can only assume the head chef was not in or something.
Excellent night , great food and great atmosphere.
Quick service, nice ambiance.
the food as always was brilliant - we ordered a mezze of small plates to share and every mouthful was amazing - we struggle to order sometimes as everything on the menu is delicious and you can't have it all . we'd like to have seen a local cider - perhaps Ashridge or papillon Gin ...we thought the refurb has been brilliantly done and both wish we could come here more often ....
Lovely roast, great service. Thanks
Sometimes on first read the menu seems a little limited but we’re always tempted by something & it never disappoints- we are frequent fliers and return most weekends so you must be doing something right 😊 💕 thank you x
The food and service were both excellent. Thank you
On booking I noted some dietary requirements; these had not been passed on to staff who were unable to satisfy them. On arrival nobody greeted us, so we sat at a table with a reservation note with my name and the time. However, after a few minutes we were unceremoniously and abruptly moved to another table as apparently there were two Georges booked at 7pm and we were the wrong one. On delivering our food we asked for mayonnaise which was forgotten and I had to get up and ask at the counter for it. Our server was eventually apologetic but initially her manner was really rather unwelcoming.
Lovely lunch with good atmosphere.
