What a fabulous place to eat. It can get very busy and they don't serve food all day but I have been to Rumours many times and the food has never ceased to amaze, always original tastes and always delicious. Went there this year for my birthday as it's always so reliable, would highly recommend.

I have been eating at Rumour for years and always find the food, service and the staff good. It's not an inexpensive venue, but the ambiance makes it worth the cost. I look forward to another visit soon.

Rumour's is the place to be in Totnes. The food is excellent. I love the chips, home-made bread, pizzas and steaks. They serve many Belgian beers at their long, wooden bar. The coffees are great. My dad described their mocha as the best he had ever tasted. The coffees are on the expensive side though. The pastries are delicious, as... More

The food is amazing some potions could be bigger though especially as the prices for some of the dishes are so expensive. The environment is very nice so long as your not plonked at the bottom of the bar. The pizzas are amazing and they're rumours chips are to die for. Never has a bad meal there. Very small venue...

This is a lovely restaurant with a great, relaxed atmosphere and fabulous food. The slow cooked pork curry is awesome, the best curry we have ever tasted. And definitely order the chunky chips. The desserts are so tempting and the home made ice cream is very unusual, there's toast and marmalade flavour, but it's delicious. Staff are very friendly and... More

A good friend of my wife and I took us out for an evening meal. We had never been there before. Totally love the settings. Wooden benches and tables nestled in separate alcoves with candles dotted around. It felt warm and welcoming and the service was excellent. I can't say that the menu was massive in choice but the food... More
