It was Calum's 16th so we all headed up to the Wheelhouse. The food was, as it usually is, very good. The vegetarian option, ok, the gluten-free very good. The ice cream was disappointing the chocolate wasn't real chocolate so 2 out of 10 and I only had one tea spoonful. The banofee and sticky toffee went back; cold I'm... More

Hadn't returned to The Wheelhouse for a couple of years. Nothing appears to have changed, Staff as pleasant and as helpful, menu varied and interesting, with some unusual additions, easy parking and some comfortable outside table service. As they are within easy reach of both the Wheel and the Kelpies, and serve all day, it makes the venue ideal for... More

This is a lovely restaurant located just before the car park for the Falkirk Wheel. It is spacious and well decorated and has a casual atmosphere. The menu is really nice and is quite mainstream but a bit more exotic than just plain pub food, they really have something for everyone. We have been a few times using our Clubcard... More

We were visiting the Falkirk Wheel and Rough Castle on the Antonine Wall nearby. There are not many choices for restaurants nearby so it's really good that this one is a good place to go. It was therefore very busy but it is a big place and well staffed so we were looked after well. The meals are big here,... More

Had dinner here recently and it was lovely. Both main and puddings were delicious! Great service from lovely staff and never felt like we were being hurried along like we've had in other restaurants. Ate here a few times now and always been happy with what we got. Reasonably priced too!

Had a lovely 2 course lunch with my husband, with soft drinks a pot of tea and a coffee all for £30. You could not ask for better service or food. You get big portions for what you pay for. I would recommend this restaurant.

The wheel house is a restraunt I have visited on numerous occasions and will continue to visit. The food is always of great quality with a menu to cater to all tastes. The actual restraunt itself is well laid out, relaxing and visually really nice. The staff seem friendly and keen to help where they can. Me and my boyfriend... More

All very much middle of the road here. No complaints, but nothing special either. From the outside, I expected a little more as the building looks modern and has an upscale look. The interior is fine, again, quite upscale and modern looking, but the food was nothing special. The food was the kind of thing you can get more or... More
