We ate in, and had a fairly reasonable meal My partner had good old fish n chips with mushy peas; the fish was very fresh – nice and fluffy; and not too much batter. I had ham, egg n chips... the ham was locally sourced, and sliced rather thick for ham – it was a good 3 mm in thickness... More

I had crab sandwiches and this came with a side salad, this was good value for money. The interior was decorated all beachy and... More

We gave it a try after being reccomended by someone in the town, take away portions were very small for the cost, chips were a bit soggy, not crispy at all. Very dissappointing.

The proliferation of fast food outlets like McDonalds means that many folks have forgotten what REAL chips are like. Potatoes - and the chips that they produce- vary over the year and from one variety to another. Starch, sugar and moisture content. Storage temperatures, frost - no frost - all affect the way a potato fries. Sometimes they fry crispy... More

We visited one wet Friday evening which had scuppered our idea of fish and chips in a bag on the river front! We managed to get a table without booking - just! It's clearly a popular place and after hovering for a while we got a table in the window. The interior is nice and clean, which must be quite... More

Could not fault the meal we had at the Wheelhouse whilst on a trip to Dartmouth. Kids meals very good value and large portions. Special - fishcakes were delicious and nice to have salad with them. Quick service. Overall good value and would recommend.

I orderd a portion of LARGE chips being charged 2.90 or somthing. Only to be given the smallest portion of chips ever!! Even smaller than my sisters who orderd same time but getting a regular portion, what a rip off. Battered sausages were soggy too. Kids were too hungry to bother going all the way back to try and sort... More

Oh dear - there seems to have been a genuine mix up if you ended up with a smaller or similar portion to your sister. We use a larger, different style of tray for the large chips and it holds 50% more. Did you somehow end up with each other's by mistake? We normally do a great job on what... More
