Went with family of 8 (plus baby), instantly greeted by a lovely lady behind the counter, then shortly after by what I can only assume is the owner (a tall man with a big sense of humour!). We were seated at the back of the restaurant where we had ample room for all of us, including the young 'un on... More

I'm not a great fan of fish, but because I'm told its good for me, I do occasionally eat it. I'm less of a fan of fish and chips, as I find the batter so rich, it usually makes me feel bilious. But when my wife suggested last Saturday having the Wheelhouse's fish and chips I went along with it.... More

We visited Dartmouth in the summer of 2015 and found this excellent fish and chip restaurant in the side streets of Dartmouth. We had an excellent meal then, and we have returned to lovely Dartmouth for a short break in January 2016. After looking at local restaurants we decided to return to the Wheel House. We were not disappointed. We... More

always fantastic fish and chips here and my daughter reckons its the best chicken burger you will get. sometimes we sit it, often take out, service is great, swift and organised, when getting fish and chips for two if one fish is much bigger than the other then theyve been known to add another small fish

Four of us seeking true British Fish and Chips found the Wheelhouse Restaurant and Takeaway by accident and were thrilled by the fish - ample, cooked perfectly with heavenly batter - and the fresh lemon and chips. This lunch was easily the best example of Fish and Chips we encountered. We'd all go back in a minute!! Thank you to... More

Very busy spot for fish and chips in Dartmouth - but worth the wait. The staff are delightful, the grub is great and the price is just right. Had the Wheelhouse platter - great, and the cod and chips went down a treat.

We were spending a few hours in Dartmouth and were feeling peckish at lunchtime. We didn't want a full restaurant meal as we were eating out that evening, so we decided to grab take-away fish & chips instead. We could see other people leaving the Wheelhouse with food that lioked and smelled fabulous so we opted for the same. We're... More

I recently visited the wheelhouse for some lunch with my boyfriend. The restaurant serves great fish & chips at a fantastic price! The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and there is even an option to takeaway (we opted to sit in the restaurant). It was a brilliant dining experience, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Dartmouth!... More
