Welcome to The Laughing Monk

Taste of West Award

Now 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 Blackpool sands and 1 mile to our right is the ever-popular Slapton sands. The South West coastal path runs practically past our door and the Dartmoor national park is no more than 30 minutes away by car.

We pride ourselves on sourcing as much local produce as possible and over the last few years have become good friends with many of our suppliers

All our fish and shell-fish arrives straight from our local fisherman, whether it be Start Bay lobsters, scallops or crab, line caught sea-bass or mackerel - one things for sure 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.

"We will be closed from 1st December 2014 until February 5th 2015 for a winterbreak"
