Yes - All Year *   Part of beach only (but definitely the best part albeit it is 'tide dependent')

One of the best things about Channel View is the location. Sandwiched between breathtaking coastal walks and magnificent beaches, Stoke Fleming is a village that is proud to boast a little bit of everything...

 

PLACES TO EAT:

 

Radius 7:

A contemporary restaurant with adjoining (dog-friendly) bar that offers a relaxed and comfortable vibe, regardless of whether you are looking for a *swift half*, take-away fish and chips, or a fully fledged three-course meal in the restaurant. 

 

The Green Dragon Inn:

Within a five-minute walk, is the Green Dragon (again, dog-friendly in the bar). This 'oldy-worldy' pub is one of life's little treasures and offers real local ales and a selection of excellent food - all served either in the bar, or if you prefer, in their adjoining 'messdeck' (code word for restaurant).

 

Blackpool Sands:

Within a ten-minute walk of Channel View, is the award-winning beach at Blackpool Sands (dog-friendly out of season, but in accordance with the Blue Flag Regulations, restrictions will sadly apply between 17th March and 28th October 2018). The clean, clear water at this family-friendly beach is tested annually by the Environmental Agency and in addition to their Lifeguard Patrol, they also offer numerous facilities to include shops and the Venus Beach Cafe.

 

Venus Beach Cafe:

Venus is a cafe by day and a licensed restaurant by night (high season only) and they pride themselves on their vast selection of organic and locally produced food and drink.

 

 

The village of Stoke Fleming is a thriving community (you name it, we've probably got it... except nightclubs - we don't have any of them thank God!) For more information about the village, why not *CLICK HERE* to visit the village website?

 

By Car:

 

In the surrounding area, we are also spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants worth visiting and could literally give you a list longer than your arm of places worth trying during your visit. Below is a small indication of those that we highly recommend: (N.B. If you fancy a drink with your meal, why not call Micky's Taxis on 07812 088 935)...

 

The Laughing Monk at Strete:

This restaurant is definitely one of my favourites... location, ambience, friendliness, menu, service, food... absolutely all of it is FAULTLESS!  Ben and Jackie have owned the Laughing Monk since 2008 and since then, their relaxing and welcoming restaurant which offers some of the best food you will taste for miles around has become a firm favourite with locals and tourists alike. (But please don't take my word for it - their reviews on Trip Advisor speak for themselves!)

 

The Cricket Inn at Beesands:

The Cricket first opened its doors in 1867 and is situated within the fmall fishing village of Beesands. The Cricket offers real ales, great wines and fantastic food to include an abundance of fresh seafood and local produce. An absolute *must* is their crab, lobster (which I can personally highly recommend) and scallops, which are caught in the bay in front of the Inn.

 

Kendricks, Dartmouth:

It doesn't matter what day of the week it is, Kendricks is without doubt, always the busiest restaurant in town. Pay them a visit and you'll soon see why. Having opened in 2000, Kendricks didn't take long to gain themselves a solid reputation for excellent food at great value. Their menu (to include a specials board) is frankly *huge* and I defy anyone to not find something on it that tickles their fancy. Whether you are looking for enticing salads, chargrilled salmon or steak, succulent ribs, sizzling fajitas, or fresh seafood delivered by local fishermen, this restaurant has it all.

 

Taylors, Dartmouth:

With its mesmerizing views over Dartmouth's harbour and boatfloat, Taylor's is one of the towns best kept secrets (Lord knows, I should know - it took me ten years to discover it!) Having done so mind you, there's now no keeping me away. This restaurant boasts sparkling chandeliers, leather seats and spectactular artwork in a comfortable and intimate dining environment and the food is quite literally *to die for* (I'm not a foodie - never have been, but the Chef/Owner clearly knows his stuff and you won't find a single pea on your plate that isn't there for a reason and doesn't compliment something else on that plate perfectly!) I truly can't recommend it enough.
