1.    The Castle Hotel: 25 years

STOP PRESS: Sax Appeal will be in the Bandstand from 7:00PM and there will be a truly fantastic firework display at 9:00pm!

Nigel and Ann Way report:  On Tuesday 22nd April come and join us for our 25th anniversary celebrations!We will be having an ‘open house’ and anyone who has stayed, eaten or drunk at the Castle over the last 25 years - this is our thank you to you!  The bars will be open as usual and in addition there will be entertainment and live music in both bars throughout the day. Later on in the evening we have arranged a spectacular fireworks finale for the whole town to enjoy at 9pm followed by a 80’s disco in the harbour bar. Please feel free to dress accordingly!

If you can’t make it on Tuesday don’t worry, we will be serving an 80’s bar food menu in the bars on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday of that week between 12-2pm and 6-8pm along with the usual bar food menus. In the restaurant business will continue as normal.

It should be a great laugh and we hope to see lots of familiar faces. We hope that customers new and old will get in touch with us and help us to build a photo album for all to view.  We would very much like you to join us!!   To se our previous report on Nigel, click here.

2.    Dinner @ RB's

The Dartmouth dot TV team had a brilliant birthday meal at RB's Restaurant in Lower Street, Dartmouth last week.  As always, the food was superbly prepared by Wayne and beautifully served by Wendy.  Regular readers of the “News” will know that Dave is a bit of a steak aficionado and pronounced his Luscombe fillet to be “absolutely one of the best he’s ever tasted!”  Both of us chose fish starters from the Specials board; plump scallops and crispy herring roes were equally delicious and Jill’s sea bass fillet melted in the mouth.  All complemented by an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon.  We couldn’t manage a dessert, but finished our meal with local ice cream.  Thank you RB's for another excellent evening. Why don’t you come down to Dartmouth and try RB’s organic fillet of beef or their locally caught seafood. Check out their menu by clicking here?

3.    Ewes, Lambs and Lunch!

On Sunday 20th April Farmer Phil Bond invites you to come and see 500 ewes and their lambs at Collaton Down Farm.  On a walk through the fields with wonderful views, Phil will explain how he produces lamb for local markets and cares for his land under Countryside Stewardship.  After the walk enjoy a barbecued lamb and mint burger (or veggie burger) with salad.  Meet at 11.00am at Collaton Down Farm, off the A3122 Totnes-Dartmouth road between Totnes Cross filling station and the Forces Tavern.  Walk finishes at 1.00pm, local produce on sale.  Adults £3, children £1.50, plus £3 for lunch.  A gentle walk.  Not suitable for pregnant women due to the proximity of new born lambs.  Booking essential, call 01803 712636 or email: click here.

Come on down to Dartmouth and pop in to see them, Signature will be open 7 days a week.


5.   Grow Your Own tonight

"Grow Your Own" is set amid the mud and clutter of an allotment garden. Run by hidebound traditionalists who ignore the occasional dissenting voice, the status quo is threatened by the arrival of a handful of asylum seekers who are given plots in the hope that outdoor work and fresh food will help them heal their broken lives.

This is not a film about gardening, it's a story of prejudice and pain in a garden setting. Expertly written and brilliantly rendered by the actors, the film takes you on a journey of hope and despair with many insights into the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.

A gentle, astute, life-affirming British comedy. Dig in.

Guest tickets for sale in The Windjammer 7.30-7.55 £3.50. Our bar at The Guildhall opens at 7.30 - the film to be shown 8pm approx.
