A nice place to spend Sunday lunchtime

Visiting friends in the area, they took us here for Sunday lunch (we were three couples). We arrived just after noon but were surprised they were unable to serve us alcoholic drinks until 12.30 (Scottish licencing laws?) but this was not a problem. The menu was varied with good choices (and not... read more

We went here for lunch on Sunday with my two children aged 2 and 3. On arrival we waited almost ten minutes to be spoken to this was approx 12.30 and only 2 tables had customers at them. Once we got to our table we waited about ten minutes to be asked if we wanted a drink and after approx... More

Lovely food for all ages. Nice and warm place on a cold day. Kids loved the environment. They ran out on some foods but possibly our fault- it was 2.30 already. Recommended.

Well what can I say, it's my own fault. My daughter who lives very nearby and who has frequented this restaurant many times over the years told me it had gone downhill. Thought we might give it a try to see for ourselves. The potato and leek soup was creamed and tasted of flour, garlic mushrooms were cooked from frozen... More

We visited the restaraunt on a Monday evening about 5.30pm. It was quiet when we arrived but got very busy as the evening went on. We were asked where we would like to sit and chose a booth table. The seats were covered in crumbs which I had to wipe down before sitting. No biggie. Our drink orders were took... More

Mixed bag of reviews. Was very busy and staff seemed rushed off their feet and quite harassed. Pre booked table wasn't ready for our large party and had to hang about waiting. All starters were nice enough. Huge portions for main especially the burgers which were seemingly good and tasty. Steaks for main were not good. Supposed to be steak... More

We had just finished a week on the Union Canal and were spending one last night on the boat. The Wheelhouse was an easy walk. It was a Saturday night and they were packed (best to make a reservation!) but they got us right in. Our waitress was exceptional at unobtrusive service and friendliness. She seemed to have a sixth... More
