Popped in for coffee. Excellent - especially as it served in a proper sized cup. Returned for lunch. Homemade bread, ample bowl of delicately spiced soup, presented in an iron bowl and board. Entire visit a pleasant, satisfying experience.

Love, love, love the place. Great food. Lovely atmosphere. Nice to stop for just a drink but also a great spot to have some food.

A bar full of buzz, with great food and excellent service. The menu suits every taste. Whether you fancy a beer and a pizza or an excellent glass of mellow Rioja and a perfectly cooked steak, you'll find it here. It's the best eatery in Totnes.

Great menu every time, quality food every time, star staff every time. The only problem is getting a reservation it is that good!

Have been to Rumour on numerous occasions. Whether it be for a pizza or a main meal, the food is always excellent. On busy nights, expect your food to take a bit longer - it's worth the wait! Always something different and interesting on the menu! On this occasion we just had pizzas and, as usual, they were brilliant. Service... More

The food was delicious, the service first-class. A Totnes resident, I recommend this restaurant wirthout hesitation. Unfortunately the evening was ruined by the behaviour of a dozen of England's finest middle-aged barbarians, who arrived tanked-up and carried on throughout the evening with a stunning lack of self-awareness. Their braying, quitened only for the period that they stuffed food or shuttled... More

We went for the Sunday Steak and Pizza night (be aware, it was fully booked for Friday and Saturday nights, even in January). Very good piece of steak and sides - lovely oven roasted (?) tomatoes. My wife thought the pizza was excellent with  'punchy flavours'

Dear 617polly Thank you for letting us know you had an unsatisfactory evening with us. Let me address your points individually: On the blackboards outside the restaurant, it says "Sunday Steak night - 2 rumps and a bottle of wine £29.95" which is the same as the blackboard inside the restaurant, and the menu in the window, and the website....

There is always an interesting new menu and the ice-creams just are the best anywhere - even as good as Italy.!

I enjoyed a nice meal here with a friend during the week between Christmas and the New Year. It was one of the only restaurants open-- which we didn't realize at the time. Thankfully we were able to get an 8 o'clock booking. I started with a salad and enjoyed a very good falafel and eggplant main entrée-which was very... More

Dear TheHonestBeet Thank you for the review. We're really pleased our vegetarian option was enjoyed. While we are not a specifically vegetarian restaurant we do love making creative vegetarian food!I'd like to apologise for inattentive service - we aim for friendly and relaxed, clearly in this case we were too much so. We hope to see you again soon. More
