Best Fish and Chips I've Had

Lovely little restaurant with the most amazing friendly and welcoming staff. I had the large cod and chips which was tasty, great fish, light and crispy batter and the chips were perfect too. Highly recommended.

We stumbled across The Wheelhouse quite by accident. We were looking for something to eat with our two young boys in the evening. The queue for the take-away was an obvious indication that this was a good establishment. We decided to go to the restaurant section as a treat - and I'm glad we did. Very clean. Instant attention from... More

I had a prawn sandwich as I only wanted a light lunch. So many prawns they kept falling out. Came with salad and crisps. Jeff's fish and chips were very good. The staff were friendly and efficient. We have been there before and each time we have not been dissapointed.

Hello, Thanks for your review. I am disappointed that you found us to be "average". If you asked any of our staff what drives me mad the most they will say "it is when food is served when the customer has no cutlery" It has therefore been our policy for 30 years that cutlery goes out at the same time...

Just visited on a busy Friday evening, very good service from a friendly team, our party ordered both regular & large portions of really excellent Cod & chips, the overall presentation & quality were great, nice & crispy chips, not over cooked, the fish was meaty & batter very light, we were impressed, I have to say one of the...

Got takeaway from here based on good reviews. The chips were a tight portion and best described as limp. The cod looked like a large portion - but on closer inspection it the fish element was underweight - about 75% batter to 25% fish. They were very busy - perhaps the standard had slipped due to that - either way... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review for us. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your take away. As you say , we have great reviews and whilst we obviously feel proud of the good ones, we also take the not so good ones seriously (even though they are quite rare). We don;t like to hide... More

Had a large (and I mean large) portion of fish and chips with my son. Very tasty and well cooked. Staff really friendly and gave my son a lollipop as he was getting a bit touchy waiting for his dinner! I really appreciated the kind thought. Will definitely visit again.

Stopped for lunch here in June 2015. The staff are very polite, attentive and friendly but without interrupting your food. The food is cooked fresh and is absolutely lovely. Don't be fooled by a 'small' portion, they are big too, the fish is amazing as are the chips... light and fluffy in the middle and cooked to perfection on the... More

Friendly staff, a clean, well kept interior and excellent, freshly cooked food (with gluten free batter options) makes for all you could ask for from a decent fish and chip restaurant. The one and only point to make is that the toilets are in need of some updating. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Hello, Thank you for your lovely review. Our gluten free batter and , if required, gluten free chips have been very popular since we introduced them at Easter. Glad you enjoyed your meal. I understand your comments about the toilets. We really hope to refurbish them again this year - though it is only 3 years since they were completely... More
