I was lucky enough to get a table as this restaurant is deservedly popular. It has really nice relaxing surroundings. Some restaurants are so dark you can't read the menu and others bash your ears with constant noisy background music, The Wheelhouse avoids both of these thankfully. The service was great, it was friendly quick and attentive and most importantly... More

Very nice food I suggest having the lamb shanks as it was so tender and a lot of meat. Only cons is it's a bit posh to bring kids as old people look up there nose at you if kids misbehave. The 2 young waitress girls work really hard but the older women needs to smile more ! :)

Lovely little place, walked in with no reservation. Was very surprised by the quality of the food it was excellent as was the service from the waitresses. Highly recommend the crab cakes and camebert starters. The chicken in mushroom and wine sauce was so tender and cooked perfectly. And if you only eat mains and dessert, you really need to... More

Always a nice welcome and good food. We bring friends and family who come to stay. Parking is easy especially in the evening with roadside spaces opposite.

We went for a quiet evening meal here 19/07/16 after a long day's walk to Porlock from Minehead. Exterior and interior of building was simple, basic yet modern and the background music not too intrusive. The staff were very efficient and professional. We both had breaded garlic mushrooms as starters, which was provided with a small side salad and garlic... More

Meeting up with family in Minehead, we needed somewhere for a 'proper' lunch rather than the fast food that is more prevalent in the town. We booked ahead, but it probably wasn't necessary on a Tuesday (different story at the weekend, when it was jam packed). Either way, we had a meal that was excellent value for money, very tasty...
