Visited during the regatta and had a brilliant late lunch. As a large party we sat inside over 3 tables. The service was excellent and friendly. The menu was extensive and very reasonable. The waiting staff were attentive and really efficient. I would recommend and come back when next in the area.

A very quick and friendly service. The chips were mediocre and a bit disappointing. I had scampi which was delicious. The salt and pepper squid was also fabulous.

Second time of dining here as they can offer gluten-free fish and chips! Lady on the counter is lovely and remembered us from our visit last year :-) Great family business. Only constructive piece of feedback would be to have browner chips. Tastes delicious though! Thank you.

After a day on the beach this was the perfect place for a traditional seaside meal. The food was fantastic, the service excellent and there was a lovely vibrant atmosphere. Children's portions were generous. The fish was lovely. We will certainly call in again when we are in Dartmouth.

Lovely restaurant, reasonably priced. Had lunch there: fish cake of the day, Haddock and chips and two kids meals. Excellent service and really tasty. Would definitely go back.

Well cooked tasty food, but it was pricey for the size of the portions and the service was definitely on the slow side, both this and every other time that we have been. Our local at home would have cleared the queue that we were waiting in several times over in the same time that we waited

Sorry but fish like leather and chips as dry as Gandhi's flip flop. May have been an off day? Only went there as rock chips purchased 3 bin bags of local mackerel caught by Jeremy Kyle guests!

Excellent fish and chips with the choice of having gluten free which I had. Sat in the restaurant. Very good service even though extremely busy. Washed down with a Peroni for me and a Bays cider for my partner which he said was an excellent cider. Would recommend the Wheelhouse

Thank SallyAnne133
