The Laughing Monk

Totnes Road, STRETE, Dartmouth, TQ6 0RN

1 rosettes

The South West Coast Path runs practically outside the front door of this converted school, and both Slapton and Blackpool Sands are a mere mile off. Inside is a light-filled, airy space with an impressive inglenook and cheery atmosphere, and a kitchen making enviable use of Devon's resources in carefully composed dishes with stimulating touches. Harissa-spiced red mullet turns up with crispy squid and sweet-sour peppers to start, prior to mains that also emphasise fish but don't scruple to take in lamb loin and faggot with rösti, cavolo nero and capers. Winter fruit sloe gin trifle with hazelnut cream is a good way to end.
