Dining Out in Strete, Devon

The Laughing Monk, Strete

Map showing The Laughing Monk, Strete

Owned by Ben and Jackie Handley since March 2008, the Laughing Monk Restaurant is set in the beautiful village of Strete on the main coastal road between Dartmouth (5miles) and Kingsbridge (9 miles). 1 mile to our left is the award winning beach of Blackpool Sands and 1 mile to the right is the ever-popular Slapton Sands. The South West Coast Path runs practically past the door and Dartmoor National Park is no more than 30 minutes away by car.

Food at the Laughing Monk restaurant is all about wonderful local produce. We are blessed in this part of the country to have such an abundance of high quality ingredients. All our fish and shellfish arrives straight from our local fisherman whether it be Start Bay lobsters, scallops or crab, line caught sea-bass or mackerel - one thing for sure is that you can't get any fresher!!!

All our meats come from Local Devon Farmers; char grilled rib-eye steaks, 8 hour braised shoulder of lamb, free-range chickens and crispy belly pork can be found on the menu.

Our philosophy is keep it simple and let the produce be the star.

Restaurant closed 22 December 2011 to the beginning of February 2012
