“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Returned to the wheel house after a number of years and have to say it was just as good as we remembered. The staff were very helpful and friendly and they create a really good atmosphere. Although small and quaint you don't feel like your squashed in.
We love fillet steak and it was definitely up there with the best ... The steak was huge and lovely and thick and cooked too exactly how we asked for it . The chips were home cooked and were lovely and crispy ....

We will definitely not leave it so long to return ... Fantastic ...

“Our monthly treat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We have been going here for over 30 years, and never had a bad meal. Cannot understand last reviewer saying veg mushy it is always perfectly crisp. Does she like it raw? Cannot rate it high enough. We like good quality food and you get it here. Also we travel a lot and it compares with the best.

“Good service but ....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

The service was fast and efficient our coats were taken on arrival and the food came up quickly. The menu is limited and got he feeling it had been put together to please the kitchen rather than the customer. All of our meats were cooked well but for my taste the vegetables were bland and over cooked, chips were warm (made earlier I think) and the mashed potato came in two scoops that reminded me of old school dinners.
Not sure if I would return.

“steaks and roasts a must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Great place for food, staff friendly chatty helpful. One problem is that its always booked. you have to book weeks in advance due to there not being many tables. Huge portions of food and nice beer. No card machine though last time we were there.

“good food great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

My husband and I went for dinner there because we used to go a long time ago so we returned just to try and recapture our youth well we are really fussy eaters but the food was great all homemade nothing out the microwave we will be returning. The service was good the steaks and chicken was fresh and tasty give it a try.
