1.     Valentine's Night 

Twinkling lights on the magical River Dart, a glass of bubbles, a Bigbury Bay Oyster and the warming glow of Wildfire – possibly the most magical combination for St Valentine’s Day Dinner?

Head Chef Mark Streeter has worked his magic yet again in devising a stunning menu for St Valentine’s Day Dinner at Wildfire Bistro, Dart Marina.

“To put together a menu for the most romantic day of the year is always a pleasure! This year I have included some traditional ‘Valentine’s flavours’ such as Oysters from Bigbury Bay, Champagne Granite, Fillet of Beef with Dauphinoise and a melting Chocolate Fondant. We have the most romantic setting by the waterside and the atmosphere at Wildfire is always relaxed so the scene is set for a night of loving great food in great company,” said Mark Streeter.

The St Valentine’s Day Dinner, which includes a champagne cocktail on arrival, five course dinner, followed by coffee and chocolates, a special gift, and your table for the whole night, is £49 per person Bookings on 01803 837180

2.    Indian Night tonight!!!!

Marilyn Bird reports:  The Dartmouth Film Society hope to dispel those winter blues with a special evening of song, dance and steaming eastern culinary delights. The film is " Bollywood Hollywood" directed by Deepa Mehta, the award winning Canadian based film maker. It is a comedy set in Toronto combining a mish mash of Indian American plot clichés oozing with across continents style.

The demand for our pre-film curry has been so great we have unfortunately now sold out of vouchers. However members who are not eating will still be able to watch the film to be shown at 8pm approx. For information please phone Marilyn Bird on 01803 835849

3.   Burns Night tomorrow

Dartmouth Vintners, in conjunction with The Royal Castle Hotel's Burns Night celebrations, will be running a 'fun', blind whisky tasting in the Galleon bar of The Royal Castle Hotel from 7.30pm to 8.30pm on Friday 25th January.

Traditional Haggis is available to eat, show off your knobbly knees and win a prize and be bewitched by a Scottish Harpist!

Come along and join in tomorrow (Friday)

4.  Rijsttafel Night, what a lovely time we had!

The Dartmouth dot TV team couldn't wait to sample the Rijsttafel Night, as  promoted in last weeks' news, so visited Nu at the Royal Castle Hotel in Dartmouth last Friday evening. We didn't quite know what to expect having  never travelled to Indonesia, and were very impressed. The price of £18.00  per person is good value, including a large appetiser - ours was spicy fish  cake, spring roll and chicken satay served with prawn crackers - followed by individual dishes of chicken curry, beef stew and monkfish and prawns with chilli sauce, accompanied by plenty of spicy rice and a green bean side  dish.

As a special treat Rita made us some banana fritters for dessert!  We passed on the complementary Green Tea.  At the end of the evening we were so full ... !  As always the service in Nu  was outstanding. Thank you Nigel and the staff and the Royal Castle for an excellent evening. 

We made an error on the menu link last week, so check it out by  clicking here  and consider going this Friday evening?

5.  RLNI Coffee Morning

You are invited to a coffee morning at the Over 60s Rest Room, Dartmouth Market on Friday 25th January from 10am - 12 noon. Cakes to "bring and buy" and a small selection of RNLI goods for sale.  We look forward to seeing you (we would appreciate cakes to sell wrapped and priced please).  We are asking you to bring any unneeded Christmas presents for sale on the morning.  The Dartmouth Appeal is going very well, an anonymous donor gave enough to buy the Tractor last week leaving us with £19,000 to find. If you need any more information about the Christmas presents please contact Anna Perry on 832393
