We had a superb Christmas meal at The Wheelhouse at Torksey Lock. The food was of the highest quality, cooked to perfection. John and his staff are always very welcoming and this makes for a thoroughly enjoyable meal every time. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Once again what an excellent meal at The Wheelhouse. John never fails to serve up an excellent meal. Top quality produce cooked to perfection. On each visit we say we will have dessert,but we still didn,t manage it when we visited last night, too full. Keep up the good work John. Maggie and Vince Hilton

We have been going to the Wheel House since 1981, we have had anniversaries, birthdays and Christmas and never had a bad meal yet. John has become a very good friend over the years and is always very welcoming

My family has been eating at the wheelhouse for over 40yrs & myself since I was very small. It's out of the way & most regulars like it that way as it's very small (old school local pub) & you need to book. I had told my husband about the place when I moved to Australia & he had been... More

After seeing all the positive reviews on trip advisor, my wife and I decided to go here with our four year old daughter. Even though I have driven through Torksey Lock many times over the years, I never knew this place existed and would never have found it without having looked on Google street view first! As someone else said... More
