Lovely fish and chips, gluten free to order; a great find for a coeliac. We ordered them to take away, as the restaurant was very busy, and ate them in the bandstand in the park. The cafe tables belong to the ladies providing tea and...More

... but they were excellent and well-filled. We have eaten fish and chips here previously and it looked as if standards have been maintained.

Fresh crab has been very scarce this year but our local supplier has not let us down so we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed them so much, they are very popular, a real taste of the sea. Kind regards

This was good fish and chips, sadly we've found some places in Dartmouth aren't all they're made out to be, so the Wheelhouse was a much better choice and was approved of by the grandsons!

I'm not someone who usually eat fish with my chips and if I do then I usually leave a fair amount but this was spot on. Some of the best fish and chips I've ever had. My plate was left clean after gobbling them up.

Was so looking forward to eating fish and chips from here. It looked amazing. I think because we were there later in the evening, the oil had gone bad so everything tasted stale. If we hadn’t had takeaway, I would have returned the food and...More

You are very welcome to bring your cockatoo. We accept one family of dogs at a time in the restaurant . We ask that they stay under the table and that they don't bark - that's all 😊
