In all our years of pub and wine bar visiting this was by far the most expensive ever ! 2 beers and 2 packets of crisps £11. Be prepared to pay !!!!

Dear johnhunt105 I'm sorry to read you were so horrified by the price of your drinks and crisps that you felt it necessary to give us a one-star review, despite the title insisting we're an 'Excellent place'. Crisps cost £1 per bag. Our draught beers range from £4 to £5.20 - I would encourage you to enquire about the price... More

I'd like to book a table, no problem said the chap, you will be at the front of the restaurant is that ok? That sounds like a negative I said? No, it is a nice table he replied. What he really meant is we are cramming in tables to make as much money as possible and you will be 2ft... More

Dear John K Thank you for leaving us a review. We're really sorry you didn't enjoy your evening with us because of where you were sat. We are a small establishment with only a few tables - when you say that staff 'did not care' that is incorrect; we honor bookings on a first-come, first-served basis when it comes to... More

I've been going to Rumour for more than 20 years. It is generally my favourite place to have lunch when visiting family in Totnes. The atmosphere has been good and the menu and pizzas did not disappoint. My recent visit disappointed for the first time, however, mainly because of a poor experience with the food; rock-hard pizza and a green... More

Dear Seymark Thanks for leaving us a review. We're really sorry you didn't enjoy your pizzas with us. If you mean the jalapeno peppers, they are from a tin. We do not pickle them ourselves. If you mean roast peppers - we do roast them ourselves, from fresh. We do occasionally make mistakes and I apologise that we fell short... More

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.

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.
