This is a desination restaurant very close to the Falkirk wheel but very popular I imagine with the locals. We were here for an early lunch on the way to Edinburgh and it was not that busy but we had to return that night and it was full. I had a tuna mayonnaise and red onion sandwich for lunch which...

Visiting the Wheelhouse with friends who were visiting from Australia. We had visited the Falkirk Wheel in the morning so decided to have lunch in the Wheelhouse. I was very disappointed that you can no longer see the Wheel from the restaurant, the trees surrounding the restaurant had now grown, even though this is still advertised on their website! We...

Always worth a visit when near the Falkirk Wheel. The staff are helpful, friendly and service is always good no matter how busy they are. The menu is extensive, the food is good quality and you never leave hungry!

This was a first visit for both couples in our party so we had no preconceptions. The positives were that the quality of food was good and the staff were lovely. The main negative was that this was not good value for money. My friend and I opted for the lighter lunch menu risotto and, although it was very nice,... More

Poor quality food for the price. Not what it once was. I much preferred the feel of the place when it first opened. Seems to be aiming at a different clientele than it had been, however still trying to charge inflated prices when compared to like for like at other places locally... not any better than a Brewersfayre or the...

Went with my wife, daughter and her girlfriend for a lunch. Nice clean, spacious place but cosy. Not a massive selection for the lunch menu but plenty of choice. Service was excellent without being overbearing and intrusive. Meals were brought out hot and fresh (I had bruschetta which was a little bland but other than that the whole meal was... More

We just popped in for a latte on the recommendation of a local business man and were surprised that we hadn't known about this place, but then the last time we were in this area was when the Falkirk Wheel first opened and that was 14 years ago!! Oh my goodness how time flies! I was so surprised at the... More

This is a lovely weekend place to eat and very fair prices for what you get. Real restaurant feel but not priced the same despite being high standard they have kept prices down. Excellent food!!
