7 of us met for lunch and a few drinks. We told the staff we were not in a hurry and were left to relax and chat. Diplomatically the staff presented us with the menus and took our order. On being invited through to the dining area we experienced a beautiful meal well served and well presented. It was a... More

Called in there for lunch after visiting the Wheel. We had a meal from the lunch menu which was good value. The vegetarian options were pretty predictable but the quality was nice however the Thai chicken seemed excessively mild. The only criticism was the pace of service which was very, very slow and there was glaring mistakes in our bill... More

I booked the seating area at side of bar for a family dinner. There were 20 of us from all ages. Everything went perfectly from the initial booking communication via email to the service and food. There were a couple of lost main meals but the staff were apologetic and we didn't have to wait too long to receive them.... More

We recently visited The Wheelhouse for a regular Friday Steak Night, this time we opted for The Wheelhouse as we had been before. The Table Service this time was much better, our server couldn't have been nicer and she tended to our needs excellently. We had a shared starter which was really nice (The Italian Board & Tapas Dishes), followed... More

Five of us had a nice meal here with all being happy with the main. Did not get tablet ice cream with the creme brulee until pointed out. This was quickly delivered unlike the coffee which did not arrive until everyone else had finished.

A good value meal and the quality was good - having read the reviews some of the comments stated it was overpriced we did not find that. The staff were friendly and informative and made the experience. I would recommend as we found it good value.

Visited after trip to Falkirk wheel. Service slow, things forgotten, burger over cooked, salad arrived without a dressing (when dressing was requested, tasted like it came from a bottle) and pulled pork rather bland. More like canteen food, than restaurant.

After spending a lovely day walking between and exploring the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies, we dropped in at The Wheelhouse for some well deserved dinner. The menu is quite varied and extensive, which some unusual variations on old favoruite themes. The food was excellent, I especially enjoyed the Chicken Piri Piri, and the service was also excellent.
