We were in Dartmouth again for a few days and always have a fish and chip meal on each visit. Being rainy we decided to eat in at the Wheelhouse and were very glad we did. The Fish and Chips were excellent - great portions - fresh fish and great chips (and marvelous mushys) .. The service, by a beautiful... More

Our family of 4 ordered 'fish (Cod) & chips' x 4 with some mushy peas and then went and sat at the harbour side and waited for the Dartmouth Castle ferry. The food was delicious, hot and certainly a very good portion size! The kids ate everything and certainly were not left hungry. Exactly what you want from seaside fish... More

We had a very tasty lunch at the Wheelhouse while visiting Dartmouth. I ordered plaice and chips which arrived on an extremely large plate with peas and salad. The batter on the plaice was delicious! My wife ordered steak pie and chips which was served with a rich gravy and mushy peas. My daughter ordered sausage chips and curry sauce... More

What a strange review. 1 star when you seem to be saying that the food is nice but you feel one of my staff was rude to another customer (not in your party is the impression I get ) I really need a bit more information than you have given if I am to make enquiries. I do not know... More

We visited Wheelhouse whilst on holiday in Devon with our daughter and 14 month old grandson. We could not have been made more welcome by the lovely waitress, she really made a fuss of our grandson Noah. The booster seat was excellent allowing him to feel like he was sat at the table at the same height as us. The... More

We had the crab sandwich and chips which on the face of it seems an odd combination. however, this is a fish and chip shop. It was good honest food which we ate n the front. I would recommend you eat here.
