Bringing readers up to date with what’s happening to businesses in/ around Dartmouth


NEW PLACES TO EAT &


DRINK It’s good to see that the Seven Stars pub on Smith Street, Dartmouth had made a welcome return under new ownership and has undergone an attractive refit. Its dining has already garnered a 4.5 out of 5 rating on TripAdvisor over the past couple of months since opening so they’re off to a good start. The new owners also run The Floating Bridge and both are part of the Quality Inns group. Just a few doors down at no 4a is a new bar and eaterie - YARN - that opened late last month. Hopefully more information about what they offer etc in future issues.


Under New Ownership “


From the beginning of October, Browns Hotel, Restaurant and Wine Bar in Dart- mouth will fall under the new ownership of Mike and Susan Bishop. Musician and Business to Business Publisher Mike Bishop and his Soho TV/Film Producer wife have for several years yearned for a lifestyle move from the overly crowded South East to the South Hams where they have dreamt of applying their love of top class food and drink in a creative and artistic setting. In recent years the couple have created the online relocation platform London2country so who better to benefit from a move from the lifestyle restraints of London to the unrestricted wonders that South Devon has to offer than Mike, Susan and their three teenage children. Having sold their Weald of Kent house to TV Masterchef’s Greg Wallace they have set their sights on Dartmouth and Browns in particular, where they look to develop the venue’s successful culinary reputation by adding their very own dimen- sion. Watch this space food and drink and music lovers!

Two of Dartmouth’s Estate Agents. Richard Blake & Freeborns, have very recently joined larger agency networks to help them reach a wider audience of buyers across the UK, for whom there is much interest in Dartmouth for second homes, retire- ment homes etc. Both Richard Blake’s offices in Dart- mouth & Brixham have joined forces with Winkworth, a leading London estate agency. The offices will still be fully owned and operated by directors Richard Blake and Trevor Branton but now trading under the Winkworth name. Commenting on joining Winkworth, Richard says: “This is a


very exciting time for us and we are thrilled to take this next step so we can continue to serve the needs of local home buyers and sellers to the best of our abilities. Our staff, values and strong local presence will all stay the same but now we will be able to tap into the excellent back offices support functions provided by Winkworth as well as benefitting from their excellent national reputation.” Winkworth will help provide dedicated marketing, PR, recruitment and IT teams, plus its established country house department which markets prime properties to individuals in the capital, providing a link to the London buyer. Meanwhile, Freeborns has teamed up with almost 80 other highly reputable estate agency offices throughout the South West as a member of the Experts in Property network. As a member of the


network, Freeborns now works together with the


Woods group, Rendells, Churchills and other offices spanning an area from St Ives to Weymouth and Bristol, sharing properties and reaching more buyers with ‘unrivalled property marketing exposure, both in-office and online, for the firm’s normal sole agency fee’. Freeborns now offers an enhanced service for homes of distinction with the Experts in Property’s Distinctly Westcountry brand, which encompasses a glossy Distinctly Westcountry magazine, even more online coverage at distinctlywestcountry and exposure in the network’s Distinctly Westcountry London office on Regent Street.


A KITCHEN SHOP ON FOSS STREET! It’s fitting that the premises on Foss Street occupied for 20 years by


the Kitchen Shop should now reopen as Dartmouth Kitchens and Interiors, albeit the latter will feature only as a showroom for the design, fitting and supply of kitchens by Andrew Watson, a long term advertiser in this magazine. Read more about Anbdrew and his colleagues on page 43
