Bought takeaway fish and chips and ate it overlooking the river to Kingswear on a perfect evening. Fish was fresh, batter crispy and chips not too greasy or soggy. Would recommend.

I visited the Wheelhouse one evening and was not disappointed. My friend is gluten free and she was delighted that her chips could be cooked separate from the fish. On request! We had fish - a giant sized piece of cod, chips and peas and this cost £10 - but you are in Dartmouth. Having said that we had a... More

Excellent food & service, fantastic portions all in a clean well run resturant. Very busy so i recommend booking if you intend to eat in or enjoy the Takeaway. First Class.

We were staying in Dartmouth and decided on fish and chips from Wheelhouse one night. Lovely fish and chips, large portions available for the very hungry and smaller portions for the not so hungry or children, all freshly cooked to order.

Walked into the Wheelhouse following a boat trip on the River Dart - it is handily located one street back from the quay. Did not book ahead but were welcomed in anyway as a group of six. The Restaurant is more cafe style and is simply decorated with a nautical feel - even with 'Gulls' and 'Buoys' toilets...! Waitress was... More

Fish and chips is fish and chips isnt it? Clearly not at this very friendly family orientated restaurant. Fish can be fried in delicate batter that is both flavoursome and crunchy and this place knows how to do it. £53 for 4 including drinks. Great value. PS Chips here are to die for lol

Very much enjoyed our lunch, chips and egg and partner had fish and chips. Nice chips. Drinks a bit overpriced but would visit again.

Thank Michelle H
