We booked in to the wheel house 3 months in advance. It's a small restaurant open limited hours, so advance bookings are necessary. We were annoyed we were sat in such a small table which struggled to contain our food and was against the wall by the draft of the door and that people kept brushing past us, but aside... More

Wow! What an amazingly brilliant restaurant. We ate here for my husbands birthday and had what I described as one of the top 3 meals in my life! Everything from the food to the atmosphere to the staff to the restaurant itself was fantastic and you can't often say that about a place! It is very good value for money... More

The unbelievable food is only rivalled by the unique atmosphere and amazing staff. They only serve red or white wine but it is of good quality and excellent value for money. You need to book well in advance because it is so popular but the seafood is to die for and the portions are large so make sure you are... More

This restaurant would equal any other, anywhere! Nothing is too difficult - i.e. a vegetarian in a shellfish restaurant! He had his own 3 course veggie meal. Well run and a fun place to be - and good value

The food here is amazing, I have been on several occasions now and each time I am blown away. The atmosphere feels somewhat exclusive given the size of the restaurant all adding to the experience. Thoroughly recommended for a visit or several. The set menu is superb giving a variety of seafood for you to taste for a very reasonable... More

The Wheelhouse was recommended by our hostess when we booked our accommodation.We were not disappointed as the evening was memorable for the quality of the various beautifuully cooked shellfish complimented by excellent wine, and followed by a tasty sorbet and a complimentary glass of port. Tina and her staff made the whole evening relaxed and enjoyable. Deserves the rating of... More

We said we liked everything except mussels. We were given the most delicious scallops I had ever had, accompanied by... More

We have waited a long time to visit here, and it was certainly worth it. The staff and they seemed to be everywhere were fantastic and made us feel so welcome, and even helped me to get the most of out of my crab. The food was absolutely incredible, the scallops melted in your mouth. I absolutely loved our visit... More
