Lovely cosy and warm restaurant in the centre of Bowness Windermere . We all had pizza's and they were really good. It was a typically wet and windy night in the Lake District , but the warm welcome and tasty food made our visit to rumours well worth while. Thoroughly recommended !

Regular visitors to Bowness and could have been regular customers but the food was average and the service very poor. Will not be returning.

They don't take reservations but, even though it was fairly busy, we were seated in a bar area and only had to wait for 15 - 20 mins. We had drinks and a menu, so no problem. Staff were really friendly, food was very good, there was a good wine list and we enjoyed both of our visits to eat... More

Didn't book anywhere on an Easter Saturday and were told they could accommodate us if we waited 20 minutes. Only waited ten minutes in the bar downstairs. Drinks waiter was friendly. My pizza was only average. My husband enjoyed his pizza. Brazilian waitress was very chatty.

I've been to many Italian restaurants so have a lot to compare Rumours Pizzeria with. We visited for lunch on a short trip to the Lakes, excellent location, was drawn into the restaurant as it looked great from the outside, wasn't bad on the inside either. Food was alright, not the nicest pizza i've had...I was probably expecting better from... More

We visited at lunchtime as our little one loves pasta and a trip to a restaurant. We ordered and the food came quickly- way too quickly which set alarm bells ringing. The pizza came on a supermarket pre-made base which had just be put under the grill which was more akin to cheese on toast. The carbonara sauce was tepid,... More

we have eaten here about three years ago and loved it so when we were staying in the same location for our honey moon we decided to eat here again. We were very disappointed this time. we both ordered the lasagne and when it arrived it looked very yellow. when eating it we noted that it was made with cheddar... More

Ate with my wife and 2 children. 2 pizzas and 2 pasta dishes. Food was acceptable but the the 2 diet pepsis were on the small side.

This is a really nice restaurant. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the food is just delicious. Struggling to see why there are so many restaurants above this one in the rankings...maybe it's all the tea shops and cafes categorised as restaurants? Location I'd slap in the middle of the town which is picturesque and only yards from... More

We visited here early on a Sunday evening. The staff were very friendly. We chose feta and olive salad and a tuna pizza - both of which were absolutely gorgeous. I would definitely visit here again and would recommend it to anyone. The one thing I would say though, is don't visit if you can't manage more than a few... More
