Great food and service

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

John and his staff are always very welcoming and this makes for a thoroughly enjoyable meal every time. We highly recommend this restaurant. It is our local restaurant but if you are within the area try it, you... More

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
