Location - Rumbling Tum is situated just off Church Street, in the vibrant harbour town of Falmouth, which is the principal and pedestrian vehicular thoroughfare through this beautiful town, which has a number of national and niche retailers.

The Rumbling Tum is located on an historic slipway connecting Church Street and the inner harbour of Falmouth and indeed the principal car park and is therefore a very popular thoroughfare and enjoys high degrees of pedestrian footfall.

Falmouth has seen significant investment in recent years in commercial and residential infrastructure and also the Falmouth University, all of which have brought great prosperity and vibrancy to the town, which has been voted one of the most desirable places to live in the UK and indeed attracts visitors all year round.

We are advised the business currently has an alcohol Licence, to be served when taken with food.
