Positioned on the eclectic High Street of Totnes, Rumour has been known by many names over the years; most recently named after the Fleetwood Mac album. Housed in a 14th Century building - previously playing host to a toffee factory and a jazz bar - it has spent the better part of the last century as a restaurant, gaining popularity and recognition from locals and visitors alike.
We are passionate about maintaining and improving upon our standards, continuing to please both our drinkers and our diners with local beverages and fresh, home-made seasonal food; as well as our renowned friendly, relaxed service. All our staff, from managers to kitchen porters work tirelessly and enthusiastically towards a common goal: for our customers to enjoy a memorable meal with us.

Me and my husband live in Cornwall but our daughter and her boyfriend live in Devon it was my daughters birthday so we traveled up to celebrate with her it was her choice to have a meal at rumour and we are glad she did it was a lovely evening grate food and very polite and friendly staff 😀
First class food - great service (friendly without being familiar, and very efficient) - lovely ambience - fair prices. We returned!
Staff were very friendly & helpful but also relaxed (in a good way!) in line with the atmosphere. We ordered 2 pizzas which were lovely and would have stayed for dessert but for the fact that we’d had a long day and were full on pizza! Would definitely visit again
I’ve been coming for years. Don’t change anything! 😂
Lovely food lovely atmosphere service was alittle sloppy waitress seemed a bit vacant but overall very happy
Fantastic evening for our wedding anniversary. The veggie selections were the best I have had in a long time
Great find, great food and fantastic staff
Food used to be excellent with old menus but not as good recently . Food we had was not good the night we booked the rye bread was burnt and too thick tiny bit salmon and the beetroot was tasteless . Chips are not good now and they used to be amazing . Also the mayonnaise had a strange texture and no taste . Rumour was the best Saturday night venue in Totnes but I won’t be in a rush to eat there again .
Rumour remains my favourite restaurant!
I'm a frequent visitor usually for a drink but thought I'd treat my son who is doing a PhD at Exeter for lunch. He enjoyed his pizza and I had plaice which was ok but it would have been better cooked fresh rather than covered in breadcrumbs. Drink prices are a bit (well truthfully a lot) on the high side - over £7 for a modest French sav blanc even beats the 7 stars and £5 for a pint of lager, well knock me over with my credit card. Friendly staff took some of the pain out of paying the bill
A great place to eat
Sunday evening before going to Totnes Cinema so just time for pizza and chunky chips but great service and good food and as always a lovely atmosphere Thanks
Delicious, great offers and good value
Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere but felt the service was very poor. I had to go and get our own menu and didn’t feel the service was very attentive. That said we would definitely come back
We usually really enjoy the menu here. But this time it was very disappointing.
Really lovely food, nice atmosphere and friendly staff
great food and very reasonably priced - but once it got busy it was impossible to get the servers attention to ask for the bill. I was also not told about the cocktail offer at the time of ordering so I missed out on a good deal on my drinks and it was not obviously advertised anywhere.
We wil definitely be back, the best meal we have had in a long time.
Service was quick - food was ok but over priced - not keen on new menu. Preferred old style menu. New decor is good - I have been coming to Rumour for years and like the buzzy atmosphere. However I do think the food is very overpriced. I hate the way you have to pay for sides that should be part of the actual meal .
We have eaten, as a family, at Rumour many times and always enjoy it
Love Rumour! Been customers for over 20 years and now our toddler loves a visit as much as we do. Thank you!
First time eating at Rumours, it will not be our last.
More choice for vegetarians on the mains (inc. a burger?) would be great!
