Nice Evening Meal

We dined on a Friday night, and were lucky enough to get a table. We all had lamb shank, which was thoroughly delicious and the meat fell off the bone. The service was excellent and very friendly. If we visit Minehead again we will definitely visit the Wheelhouse again.

Traditional restaurant and menu. Clean, nice decoration, attentive staff, good variety of food available and not too expensive. We chose a booth to eat at, but in hindsight, a normal table and chairs would have been a bit more comfortable. Otherwise, fully recommended and we will go back when we visit Minehead next time.

Or meal was served quickly by friendly staff and the food was great. The restaurant was recommended by our landlady and she suggested we book as soon as possible. We took her advice and we had the last table available on a Saturday evening.

We visited the restaurant today following the reviews on this site. The surroundings, staff & food were all fantastic. The Ham ploughman's & Steak & Kidney Pie that we had were the best foods we have had for a very long time. We will return every time we are in Minehead - and so should you!!

We noth had steaks and they were fantastic. Best steaks we have had in a long time at a reasonable price too. Its a traditional pub grub menu so dont expect anything fancy but what you get is excellent quality at a good price.

Visited The Wheelhouse for dinner after reading the great reviews. The staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and efficient. The inside is dark and decor dated and needs updated as do the toilet facilities. The menu choice was good but I am sorry to say I was so disappointed. The salmon was bland as was the sauce and tasted like a... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Newquay. Staff were friendly and efficient and the breakfast was lovely, very good bacon. And the coffee was good too. Would visit again if we are in the area.
