“I SMELL”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I can't sneak a fry up in without coming out absolutely stinking of cooked bacon and sausage, everyone knows where you've been!! I use the place quite regularly even though the attitude of the staff to customer's changes like the wind

In response to your comment I would like to point out that we have recently had a new extraction fan fitted in the dining area,however as the food is cooked fresh to order in front of you there will obviously be a certain amount of odour.Regarding the attitude of the staff you are quite welcome to visit the cafe to make a formal complaint which I will then investigate,as you can read from the previous reviews staff have always been described as friendly and always pleasant.
Regards

“"The Best cafe , Ever"”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

On saturday 13/4/2013 me & three friends had ridden our vespa scooters from nottingham to Burton for the Burton Brewers custom show & after parking up it was decided to go & fill our faces cos we was all starving. We came across RUMBLETUMS cafe on station street & was warmly greeted by the staff ; three breakfasts was orded & a sausage & tomatoe sandwich for me with 4 hot mugs of tea , we sat down but did not have to wait to long before we was all tucking into some of the best cafe food we have eaten , the breakfasts was all hot & fresh cooked with door stopper toast & bread the food quality was very very high & fits the 5 score food rateing certifficate that this excellent cafe proudly has on show . So if you are in Burton & want some high Quality food at a good price served by staff that are warm friendly & willing to have a chat & a laugh with you the pop along to Rumbletums you wont be disapointed.

“Great Breakfast Palace!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

A group of us (6) called in for breakfast - this was our first visit to this fine cafe. We were given a friendly welcome and all got seated straightaway.We all had the "Full Monty" breakfast which were all freshly cooked - so we did not mind waiting. Excellent plentiful breakfast with thick cut bread used for the toast - excellent. The cafe became very busy with a gang of contractors descending, but the staff coped very well. We could not fault the place and will definitely call again for another super breakfast. Highly recommended!!

Not a lot else to say - except keep up the good work "Rumbletums" !

“Great value for money - you will not be disappointed”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Changes in staff have not reduced the traditionally high standards at Rumbletums, where it is always service with a smile. New items have been added to the long-established menu,eg Cornish pasties, and the old favourites taste as good as they always did.

Deb and her team will make you welcome, and go out of their way to cater for the special requests of guests who want something a little different from the menu options. If you are visiting Burton, or have some time waiting at the nearby railway station, (a 5 minute walk away) give Rumbletums a try... you will not be disappointed.
