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.

We both had rump steak. It was seasoned perfectly & cooked exactly as we had asked for. It came with chips which were crispy... More
