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

Nice food with a fairly diverse selection on the menu. My lamb shank was a little fatty for my liking, but the vegetarian option was very good.

Went in for a cream tea which was both good value and very tasty, after seeing the evening menu we went back. We were greeted by friendly staff on both visits. The meal itself was of good quality and was served up hot. All the staff were helpful and very friendly. This was our first visit to The Wheelhouse but... More

Walked by one afternoon and had an excellent value cream tea. We asked to see the dinner menu; it caught our eye. After a discussion we booked a table for a few nights ahead. The restaurant is big enough to hold approx. 40. It is clean and well presented. A family run business it offers a wide range of excellent... More

Visited for lunch during May half term. Plenty of choice on a lunchtime menu for a fiver, but my wife and I went for fish and chips off the a la carte menu. The fish was not freshly battered, which was a disappointment. The chips were excellent. The children's food was very good value at just over a fiver, and... More
