Another fun night out

A tiny restaurant where guests are in tight spaces enjoying great seafood. We have been coming here for several years and it never disappoints. I usually have the lobster (bit rubbery this time guys!) but the mussels as starters were very good indeed. A simple formula for an enjoyable night out... read more

An absolutely delight, rustic but welcoming, fabulous flavours, rather unique! Our teenagers just couldn't quiet believe how wonderful this place was. Indeed as soon as you walk in here it all feels rather special. It's tiny, dark and rustic but the place is alive with enthusiastic staff, wonderful food and an amazing atmosphere! We ate scallops, prawns, crab, lobster and... More

We visited the Wheel House for the second time whilst on holiday this year and we were certainly not disappointed. Visiting the restaurant is like going for dinner with friends. The team make you feel so welcome from the moment you walk through the door. Jack and Beth looked after us superbly and Tina always has time for a chat,... More

Went here on the last day of our holiday to see what the fuss was all about - we had booked it 6 weeks earlier and got the last table on the night in question - they only have 2 sittings and about 30 seats, so don't expect to get in without booking. Menu consists of 4 types of shell... More

This restaurant never fails to deliver on all fronts, you feel like an old friend when you enter here, the staff are absolutely fantastic and you feel that they love the place to, and so they should. The atmosphere and coziness is contagious with all diners chatting to each other, and i had the best Happy Birthday sung to me... More

The seafood was fresh and delicious, but don't expect a fine dining experience. The staff is very friendly. The room is small. The seating is table and benches.

They keep things simple: scallops, crab, muscles and prawns are on the menu, that's it. Ad they do it VERY well. All delicious. Very engaging, friendly staff who know the options and produce very well. Only downside is that it is so popular it's booked 1 month in advance. However we were lucky & sneaked in late on. Definitely one... More

This really is a wonderful place which richly deserves its’ No 1 ranking. It is very simple - a limited menu comprising prawns, scallops, mussels, crab and lobster. These are each served a couple of ways. Accompaniments are generous portions of bread, super crispy fries and salad. We had shell on prawns with garlic although you can get them peeled... More
