Visited Wheelhouse after recommendation from a friend. Used Tesco vouchers and made the most of it. Had 3 courses(didn't really need it). Couldn't fault food or service. Menu caters for all from light meals and snacks to dinner. Will certainly return again with the family.

We eat at the wheelhouse occasionally and we can say that it goes from strength to strength. It's always full an busy and the whole team are happy and cheery. Nothing is an issue. Credit to the management and chefs for keeping the standards high and moving with the times. The food is always fresh and fantastic and nothing is... More

Last night I ate here with my family and I could not complain about a thing! Food was delicious and we had great service! Even better getting £20 off your bill from using the tesco clubcard exchange! Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and music playing outside was a lovely touch. We will be returning.

We were planning a day out in central Scotland entertaining friends from Canada and England and decided to visit the Falkirk Wheel in the morning and the Kelpies in the afternoon with lunch in between. A swift bit of research online identified The Wheelhouse as an ideal place for lunch so I phoned earlier this week to book a table.... More

Visited The Wheelhouse today with my husband and 1 year old after visiting The Kelpies. Seated quickly and high chair supplied, friendly waitress. Drinks and food order taken. The starters arrived quickly, food great. However the mains took 30+ minutes from when we had finished our starter, it was not overly busy. I had to ask the waitress who went... More

Booked this place on a Saturday night. It was not bursting at the seams but it was busy. Not sure that should account for why it took 25 mins to get water and drinks delivered to the table. That was after me having to go find out what was going on. Food however was great. No complaints about that at... More

Having been to The Boathouse several times, I felt confident that Wheelhouse would be excellent. It wasn't. I had the halloumi starter which was nice but, one of the three pieces of halloumi was grilled to perfection and the other two underdone (see photo). Considering the price (£5.95) it seemed a little scrappy and not the standard you'd expect. However,... More

We came here as a group of 10 on a weeknight and it was very quiet, however, we think that the food was quite slow coming out and a little overpriced. The food was decent, standouts were the steaks - 8oz fillet with peppercorn, hollandaise and blue cheese or whiskey cream for £25.50. We used TESCO vouchers, so the total... More

Visited for the first and last time today. Apart from the barman, who was exceptionally nice, the staff were ruse. We asked for a menu and were not offered the lunch menu. I thought the prices were very high, then spotted that all other diners had a different menu. My friend went to the bar and asked for the lunch... More
