Great Gluten Free Fish And Chips

It was great to find a restaurant offering gluten free fish and chips. Friendly staff who were also knowledgeable about coeliacs disease. Very enjoyable meal - will definitely revisit the next time we are in the area.

Place seemed clean enough, fish good, chips good, bit smaller portion than expected, mushy peas excellent, bread laughable, £1.20 for 2 slices from a 40p loaf!! Expect a 50% markup to eat in. Have takeaway and buy bread from coop over road.

I am sorry about the bread served with your fish and chips. It was really much busier than expected on Saturday and we used all our bread stocks for toast in the morning. I guess when we dashed out to buy more the shelves must have been bare as they often are! We usually buy a soft farmhouse loaf which... More

In Dartmouth for the day, keen to have fish and chips for lunch and, after eyeing up a few places, decided to try the Wheelhouse as it looked popular. Bright, simple décor with friendly, but not overly chatty, staff. Obviously popular with locals as well as holidaymakers. Large cod and chips was truly enormous, but somehow I managed it! Regular...
