The Laughing Monk Restaurant

The Laughing Monk Restaurant


0.5 miles
Totnes Road, Strete, Nr. Dartmouth, TQ6 0RN
Situated in the picturesque coastal village of Strete, just five miles from Dartmouth, this restaurant occupies what was the village school, from 1839 until the 1960s. A different kind of education can be had here now - one in quality local cuisine and top-notch hospitality.

Owners Ben and Jackie Handley bring with them a wealth of experience of working in award-winning country house hotels. They kept many of the school's features - including the original floor - whilst creating a restaurant that's light and airy in summer and, when the shutters are closed and the wood burner is lit, a cosy retreat in winter.

The Laughing Monk has been awarded an AA rosette and a Taste of the West Gold award, and it's not hard to see why. The food here is all about simplicity and freshness, with much of the produce coming from their own doorstep. The chefs are spoiled for choice, therefore so are we. The likes of seafood from Start Bay, meat from local farmers and products from Dartmouth Dairy can be found on the regularly changing menu.

The service here is friendly, unobtrusive and efficient. It's a family-friendly restaurant and those with small children in tow will love the 'early supper menu' (available Monday to Saturday, 5pm until 7pm in the summer and 6.30pm until 7.30pm in the winter), which offers starters and desserts at £5 and mains at £12.
