4 of us ate at the New Angel last week, lovely food but none of slept well that night cus the food is soooooooo rich!
I think the marina is pretty dear also as we were on a 43' motor cruiser and it was costing nearly 65 per night! are the moorings in dartmouth the dearest on the south coast??

Consider yourself lucky. My ex-gf would have simply started punching me.

Hi - In case it's of interest there's a Biboa run from Cowes to Dartmouth from Friday 29th - Sun 31st May. (See www.Biboa.com/forum) As long as the weather's Ok we'll be in Dartmouth from the Friday afternoon so if you are still in the area and want to get a bit of ribbing in I'm sure we could arrange something on Dizzy or one of the other boats for you and the kids. I should have Katie and/or Richard (my kids) with me.
I'll PM you my mobile number in case you want to get in touch nearer the time.
Trevor

The plan is to leave Yarmouth at about 10.00 and be in Dartmouth for Lunch. This sounds a bit optimistic to me (or maybe it'll be a late lunch) but that's the plan! All weather dependent of course!
