Local Business News


In this new regular column, we will bring readers up to date with what’s happening to businesses in/around Dartmouth


Looking our best By the time you get this magazine, a number of shops and


restaurants will have spruced themselves up ready for the new season – Dartmouth Wine has undergone a complete refit and makeover with new tasting machines installed. Ed Capper says it looks bigger and better than ever! The Market House Inn has recently undergone a major refit and reopened under new management - Michele and Julian. There’s a good selection now of craft beers and lagers. Browns Hotel reopened after a short winter break with a brand new look, restyled ground floor and a new Kitchen Bar. It’s apparently ‘fun, informal and all day’. They’ll be serving all day coffee and teas, lunches and evening tapas. Eat as much or as little as you like. Sit anywhere on the ground floor. Taylors restaurant reopens at the end of February after a freshen up – something to draw away your gaze from the view perhaps! Finally, Fat Face are boasting a new look.


Moving Out Heather at Flowersmiths (Anzac Street) has moved out – her new flower studio will not be open to the public but she will continue to be available on 01803 835900 to discuss your requirements. Order 24 hrs in advance to arrange free delivery in town or collection from a ‘pick-up’ point at the Smith Street Deli. Meet by appointment for weddings and funerals.


Plugprints has vacated their shop in Foss Street and can now be found on the 1st floor at the Simon Drew Gallery. By The Dart contributor, Ian Thomas of Pilot Financial, is now based in Totnes High Street – new telephone number 01803 864092. We notice there are about 7 vacant shop premises in the town, which hopefully will soon have new tenants.


Moving Up i.e. upstairs, as the team running Bushells have acquired Sails


Restaurant – literally next door and up a flight! More details soon. Stuart Millard, until February the Manager of Stags Dartmouth office, has moved east to take up a new role. His replacement, Scott Ramsey, is already in place and is quickly getting to know the mar- ket – we hope to interview Scott in the next issue of By The Dart.


BUSINESSES FOR SALE If you’re reading this as a visitor to town and harbour a dream for a new lifestyle by the coast then there are a number of local businesses currently for sale. In no particular order, they include the following (some are for sale with their associated premises) – Ash Cross Kennels & Cattery, Skippers Restaurant, The Windjammer, No 8 Brasserie, Pure Indulgence, Foxwood Furniture & Gifts, Dartmouth Hire Centre, The Old Market Café, Pillars Newsagents, Hollis Rigging, Dartmouth Midi Skips etc. More details on uk.businessesforsale.com and www. daltonsbusiness.com (details correct at the time of going to press). We understand that Mamas Kitchen and The Spinning Wheel Café have recently been sold.


NEW TO TOWN


Whilst we await the imminent opening of Costa Coffee (no, By The Dart has no inside information on the date) and whilst we can’t confirm the rumours that the Lloyds Bank will reemerge as a Pizza Express (if you know, please tell us!) the local retail landscape continues


to change. If you haven’t recently been in the


Old Market Square, you’ll now notice that John Gillo has closed down but there are new shops – Fanciflair selling handmade gifts; Poppy’s Closet selling children’s clothes, accessories and Nik Naks (sic), designer new and preloved items as well as fancy dress sales & hire. There’s also the reincarna- tion of Dreams of Dartmouth having moved to the Square and reopened as Dreams@ Number3 Boutique. Just along the road in Duke Street, the old HSBC bank now houses Mountain Warehouse – the website says ‘quality outdoor clothing and equipment at the lowest prices’. Not quite a new shop, but there is a new owner at Dart Optical following Marianne and Simon Yoell’s well-earned retirement. Simon has peered into thousands of Dartmouth eyes over the past 20 years. The owner is Nick Gleed who owns two other practices in Bude and Tiverton. The new manager and dispens- ing optician is Sharon Maun- der and the optometrist is Tom Bath. Again not quite new, but gentlemen, a reminder that there is a new barber in town – in the Palladian Arcade, suitably called the Arcade Barbers.
