Wheelhouse

Went there with family of 4 . Very accommodating, food was good and reasonably priced. We had a afternoon trip to Dartmouth via a boat excursion from torquay. The restaurant is easily found in the Town and noticed it was both busy on takeaway side and eat in.

Ewww....greasy, overcooked, dry and unappetising. Was vry disappointed despite fairly good reviews. The chippy by the ferry a few days later was gorgeous!

There's nothing poncy or pretentious about this place, and that's why it is so successful. Good food at reasonable prices, it's a fish and chip shop that also serves a variety of other dishes. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It's well worth a visit.

Stopped in for a breakfast and as we were camping in Woolacombe. We had been here once before about a year ago. We now have a 7month old English Bull Terrier and hoped she would be allowed in. On asking it was fine (she did appreciate being asked as not always appropriate) and our puppy was able to accompany us.... More

We had cod & chips with mushy peas in the restaurant, and the food was lovely and perfectly done. The décor was sweet, with the tables a plastic that had been coated to resemble weathered ship decking, and relaxing Cuban-style music playing in the background. It sounds a little odd, but it worked very well to give a very pleasant... More

Really lovely family friendly fish and chip restaurant. We visited at lunch time, they have booster seats suitable for toddlers and a baby change facility. Lovely fish and chips, good potion size, not ridiculously large like some places, they also have excellent gluten free batter available.

Went in after seeing that they do gluten free batter on a variety of their fish. Never had gluten free battered anything and since going gluten free things like fish and chips have not been on our menu. The meal was amazing. Hubby had plaice and I had haddock and chips. We ordered a regular which was more than plenty... More

Both a takeout and a restaurant, the Wheelhouse seemed quite popular when we went (which is always a good sign). We were not disappointed; the food was quite good and very interesting to a Canadian. I had a pasty with salad which came with various other interesting items including some overly creamy coleslaw, a couple of pickled onions and some... More
