We visited Rumour for the second year in succession and purposely booked for the Sunday night special of 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for £28.95. The steaks were average but the ice-cream after was absolutely delicious. Nice atmosphere and good staff.

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.

do you offer gluten free pizzas? Thanks Neil

Hi Neil. We don't make our own - but some customers bring their own and we add our sauce, cheese and toppings to it. Please note we bake often twice daily on site so can never guarantee no cross contamination.
