Very clean tasting fish and chips, eaten (inside) in pleasant enough surroundings. Good flavoured batter. Portions of the flaky, good quality haddock seemed on the small side, however, and the cod 'special' that the majority of those around us were eating would have been a better buy. There was no plaice available. The chips were no more than okay in... More

We were in Dartmouth for the weekend, and had been planning to go out for dinner. However as my boyfriend was suffering from a bad cold, we decided to get a takeaway to eat in our room. We picked Wheelhouse based on reviews and weren't disappointed - a classic, tasty, big portioned english fish & chips. My boyfriend's scampi went... More

Fish and Chips take away Friday night spot on. Chips were a 8/10 on my chips score board, fish was tasty too. Battered sausage was a little small, maybe thats how they like them down here.

We found this excellent fish restaurant on a cold November Thursday evening in a quiet Dartmouth. Delicious fish and chips, generous portions, friendly service. We washed down the meal with Bay's bottled beers. They do excellent burgers too.

Ate in the restaurant and had a cod meal. Cod was nicely cooked and the chips and peas were good. We ate a late lunch and despite what looked like a busy service the staff were friendly and efficient. It's not the cheapest chippy in the world but neither is it unreasonably priced for the location. It's certainly not as... More

Nice Fish & Chips. Good choice of other food too on the menu. Quick good service, food all good, cooked, well and hot. Reasonable cost too. ( Tip: Regular Fish & Chips is huge, you don't need to go large)

Food was great and service was excellent but it was quite expensive compared to some. Seating inside and out but we chose to takeaway and sit on the sea front (we had to pay extra for a box rather than it being wrapped in paper)
