Great little restaurant and very reasonably priced. It was full on Saturday evening and lots of people were turned away so do book. We had rump steak as our main choruses and wit was excellent. Wines were reasonable and service was first class and very friendly. Would definitely go back.

I'm glad I booked our meal as the staff were having to suggest to several people that they come back later because they were full! The Wheelhouse is a lovely restaurant that has been tastefully decorated. It has friendly staff and excellent service. The food was mmm wonderful and we enjoyed every mouthful. We can't recommend it highly enough.

A very friendly restaurant with excellent food and excellent service. Well placed in The Avenue at Minehead. You can either sit at ordinary tables or in booths - both very comfortable. Nothing too much trouble for the excellent waitress who served us (the owner).

Chose this place out of a street full of restuarants as it looked smart and offered a good value roast and childrens meals. We definitely made the right choice! Very friendly and welcoming.

A group of us in Minehead for the weekend managed to catch the last sitting here on a Saturday night, and we were all glad we did. Food was good, service very welcoming, and all at an extremely reasonable price. Best bit was the blackberry and apple crumble, with custard, of course. A restaurant well worthy of its placing in...
