The Dartmouth dot TV team had
heard that Browns Restaurant has a new chef and visited last
week to sample his cooking! Previously Chef on the Orient
Express Barge which operates in the Burgundy area of France,
Phil Kelly is now pleased to be settled on firm ground in
Thereís a different Mediterranean inspired menu each day to
incorporate local ingredients, and items like chutney,
yoghurt and ice cream are made from scratch wherever
possible. Browns has also gained a reputation for serving
fresh Bigbury Bay oysters and last week was no exception!
While relaxing with a pre-dinner drink we thoroughly enjoyed
our freshly shucked Pacific Oysters with a squeeze of lemon
and a dash of Tabasco, but then tried them pan fried with a
lime and coriander relish - a totally different, but no less
enjoyable taste experience, and perhaps a gentle
introduction to oysters for anyone who has been reluctant to
give them a try.
Browns has also introduced Dartmouth to tapas and we
couldnít miss sharing a huge mixed tapas platter as a
starter. Thereís a varied selection of main courses, but
itíll be no surprise to hear that Dave chose local well hung
sirloin steak! while Jill opted for Browns paella, which was
chock-full of excellent shellfish. All the desserts are home
made, with our recommendations being lemon and vanilla tart
with a pear sorbet or honeycomb, home made Greek yoghurt and
roasted pistachio nuts.
Why not come down and stay in one of the hotelís stylish
rooms, call in to Browns Bar for a relaxing glass of
champagne or cocktail, then eat in the restaurant Ö go on,
spoil yourself, you know you want to!

Well almost! This
riverside house is ready to move in to. You might want
to refurbish it now, or later when time and funds allow?
The Dartmouth dot TV crew pondered on a self contained flat
in part of the garden and turning the basement into a Granny
Annex to die for? And even a parking space too!

Sue Tweed reports:
You are invited to join us at the 5th Dartmouth Art Weekend
in aid of Children's Hospice South West, to be held on
Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd June 2008 from 10.00am
As in previous years,
there will be around 30 artists, sculptors, potters,
photographers and other artists, displaying their talents in
gazebos in the Royal Avenue Gardens in Dartmouth. The aim is
that the public can watch, and talk to, the artists while
they work. We shall also have some children's artwork to see
and good homemade food in Royal Avenue Gardens served by
Childrenís Hospice volunteers.
Why don't you come down
for a long weekend?
in the news
On Saturday morning the
sky was blue, the birds were singing and boats were messing
about on the river. Then just before lunch the heavens
opened and suddenly there were two feet of water in Victoria
Road! Dartmouth dot TV photographers were on hand and
their results were printed on the front page of Monday's
Herald Express and page 3 of the Western Morning News.
Dave said "I always wanted to be a page three photographer
and now my dream has come true". Rumour has it
that there was once a pumping station under the Market, if
anyone knows where it was, please tell us
