30 years of excellence!!

After thirty years of trying many restaurants and then returning to the Wheelhouse, it's about time I wrote a well deserved review. The best steak for miles - always top quality meat and perfectly cooked. We've never been disappointed. Even a group booking with a personalised menu was fantastic... read more

I will be utterly honest here. Food was fine, the Fish & Chips were good (big), but I would not say it was great. Its a blast from the past from the 80s in many respects with a classic menu that appeals to the older generation and those who like traditional old style British food. Its just not for me.... More

Had a meal here last week and it was OK! Nothing to write home about for the price. Tasteful surroundings and attentive staff, but thats all we could say about it.

Me and my friend has been wanting to try and eat here for sometime as it has been highly recommended by many. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The menu wasn't extensive and I found it very easy to choose. The food was freshly cooked and the portion sizes were good. I did find the prices a little high... More

Have been going to The Wheelhouse for 20 years, Small intimate restaurant - booking essential - so popular you don't get in "on spec". Spot-on steaks, excellent friendly service, and their Sunday lunches...............fantastic.

Have been eating at the Wheelhouse for over thirty years (when John the now owner was just the waiter !) and the food has been consistently good. Not many restaurants can say that. No foreign food, no burgers - just steak, gammon,chicken, fish etc , all cooked to perfection with more than enough on the plate to satisfy the hungriest... More

visited here for a family meal, lovely food and great service, made to feel really welcome and had a lovely evening. Food is homemade and cooked to order, so can take a while, but is worth the wait. Food is cooked to perfection with good portions. Will definitely visit again.

My husband and I were on our way back from spending time at the seaside and dropped in for dinner after looking on trip advisor for somewhere to eat. So glad we did. Although we had not made a reservation they accommodated us with no fuss. Even though it was apparent they were very busy and nearing the end of... More
