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
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

by a Scottish Harpist!

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
and consider going this Friday evening?
5. RLNI Coffee

morning at the Over 60s Rest Room, Dartmouth Market on Friday
