Really enjoyed my meal here. I have allergies and the staff were more than willing to help me find something I could eat while dining with them. Not only did they find something, but it was also delicious! Looks small and modern of the outside but it side it's fairly large and oldy worldy looking. We really enjoyed our meal... More

Dropped on lucky when we called in here for our evening meal. We all enjoyed the food and service so much that we came back a second night..... And we were only staying in Minehead for two nights! Outstanding service from the owners who are attentive and accommodating. Couldn't have been more helpful. I can wholeheartedly recommend the Wheelhouse to... More

Visited in August 2014. Very good service and attentive waiters. A real family atmosphere and prompt service. Good prices and suits all budgets - as starts from £5 for a burger etc. Highly recommended.

Looking for somewhere for lunch and not wanting the usual take-away fayre so loved by the visiting holiday camp escapees, we stumbled upon this family run little gem on The Avenue. OK, perhaps I'm being a snob, but you get the idea! Warmly welcomed, offered choice of tables, service with a smile and food freshly prepared/cooked and charged at a... More

Very very nice meal, reasonable prices. I wasn't too hungry so I asked if they would allow me to have a child's portion. No problem. I had Chicken Nuggets which were obviously home made, chicken breast in light batter served with home made chips and peas, jelly and ice cream and a drink! My friend's lunch, fish and chips, was...

We returned to this little restaurant after a long break due to illness and were delighted to recognise the married couple who still ran the place. To our surprise, they remembered us and were able to spare a few minutes for an update chat. The place continues to be one of quiet, good, cheerful service with an excellant menu. We... More
