Excellent fish suppers here for carry out or eat in. Big queues can spring up at 18.00 on the dot. Ultra child friendly. Cod comes with no skin but haddock comes with skin so IMO tastier! Great batter! Extensive non fish menu available.

Just been to the wheelhouse for lunch and received excellent service in a clean friendly enviroment. But best of all some of the best fish and chips I have had after traveling the UK for the last 9 years and always trying to find the best local fish restaurants. Highly recommended keep up the good work
