This is one of our favourites. Family owned & run, with a straightforward no- nonsense menu but don 't let that deceive! Locally sourced produce with steaks and fresh fish that are always & consistently as good as it gets. Hand cut, multiple cooked chips that for us remain unequalled, fresh vegetables, salads and deserts to die for! All this... More

Our large party were served efficiently by competent and friendly staff. It was good that the chef/owner had time to talk, Good beers on arrival, we enjoyed the starters and the silverside of beef was surprisingly good for a group who enjoys its sirloin. Only room for improvement would be more roast less mash! Excellent puddings and very good teas... More

Went here as a group of 8 for Sunday lunch. It is an unpretentious venue with a reasonably priced selection of food. If you are looking for a good Sunday roast you will get it here. The lamb shank I had was very good and the vegetables well prepared, though as has been commented already the two scoops of mash... More

Returned to the wheel house after a number of years and have to say it was just as good as we remembered. The staff were very helpful and friendly and they create a really good atmosphere. Although small and quaint you don't feel like your squashed in. We love fillet steak and it was definitely up there with the best... More

We have been going here for over 30 years, and never had a bad meal. Cannot understand last reviewer saying veg mushy it is always perfectly crisp. Does she like it raw? Cannot rate it high enough. We like good quality food and you get it here. Also we travel a lot and it compares with the best.
