This restaurant deserves to be at the top of Minehead eating establishments. The owners, Kim and Gary make customers so welcome and offer a friendly and efficient service. The menu is variable and offers super fresh home cooked food. Kim makes some of the desserts herself and they are gluten free. A great place to visit.

When we entered the Wheelhouse on Tuesday 9th Sept. it was well full but Kim managed to make space for us near to the door. Even under what could have been very trying circumstances, the service was very smooth and unhurried. My gluten free needs were met with a smile and recommendations. As our order was being prepared, another couple... More

Popped in on our last night in Minehead as the sweet potato, chickpea and spinach curry just called to me........and I was not disappointed!! Such a nice change from the usual vegetarian offerings of mushrooms or goats cheese. Partner enjoyed his gammon steak and desserts were scrummy. Such a friendly place!!! If you ever identify the mystery celeb.......do let me... More

Kim & Gary,the proprietors, have done their very best to run a first class restaurant & they have succeeded. Well done. I will going again in... More

While staying at Butlins, my Daughter, son-in-law, and my grandson (aged 3) and I decided we would like to try a local restaurant. So we looked up on line and this sounded good. We arrived at 6.30pm and it was just opening, and were shown to our table by a lovely friendly lady who then took our drinks order whilst... More

Visited there this weekend for Sunday lunch and it was really tasty. Service was really friendly and relaxed. Although it was a Sunday we had the choice of the full menu. Excellent Gluton Free menu available also. Nice home cooked meals

We have been to this restaurant on many occasions over the past three years - yes we enjoy Minehead and Exmoor - and have found the standards of food and service to be all that we could wish for. May I especially recommend the superb steak and kidney pie they produce? It is, to my mind, the best I have... More

We had been staying in Butlins and had all but given up hope of good food until we got home. Then we found this lovely little restaurant in Minehead. The food was tasty, well cooked and the owners were welcoming and friendly. We went back two nights in a row and were not disappointed. As a party of three adults... More
