I have visited the wheelhouse many times over a number of years but felt it had lost its sparkle a bit. Not any more. I've noticed on recent visits that the service provided is very good with the staff making you feel very important and providing an excellent customer experience. Very attentive and friendly and a great venue all round.... More

We visited on Sunday for a family birthday and on arriving we were seated by a pleasant girl who recommended the roast beef special. So after opting for the scallop starter I decided to go with the roast beef. When the scallops arrived I struggled to see them on the plate so small they were, neatly mounted on a quarter... More

We visited here one lunchtime, mid week on what can only be described a grey and miserable September day. We had decided to visit as we had previously visited the Boathouse in Kilsyth and have just heard about this place when booking Christmas dinner, I had to investigate. On arrival it seems really big and at 12 it was not... More

We went here for lunch, have never been before but we weren't disappointed. The staff were pleasant and attentive, but not intrusive. The menu had something for everyone, the food was great and the atmosphere was relaxed not rushing us. Would definitely recommend and will be back

Often eat here with Tesco vouchers, but that does not detract from the meal. The steaks are good, however it can vary sometimes depending on the chef which is disappointing. They used to always be fantastic and the blue cheese sauce was to die for but they seem to have changed the recipe (or the chef) because it's not as... More

Hi Vikvet, Thank you for your feedback. On most Friday nights we offer chateaubriand on our Farm to Fork steak night ( steaks may vary) , we always advise to let us know upon booking a table that you would like a chateaubriand and we can keep one for you as we only have a limited supply. I have passed... More

Trip Advisor did it again for us. Searched for a good place to eat lunch in Falkirk and found promising reviews. We were not disappointed. Large car park, lovely interior, friendly and helpful staff. Great menu. Delicious lunch. Really enjoyed ourselves. Good value. Spotlessly clean toilets.

I use this restaurant fairly regularly for business coffee meetings and was first introduced to it via networking breakfasts. Can vouch that their Scottish breakfast is amazing! We have also visited a few times for dinner and I'm always impressed by excellent staff and delicious food. Great range and good menu for gluten free diets too.

Came one Saturday night a few weeks ago with my boyfriend. Good variety of choices on the menu, but wasn't overly impressed with the food when it came. Service was very slow, drinks and food both took a long time to come.

Have been here several times now. Food is great and good portions. Staff always willing to help and attentive. Have also used Tesco Clubcard vouchers with no change in menu service or portions. Very close to Falkirk wheel, 5 mins walk, which also has a good children's play park. Great to tire them out before or after a meal. This... More
