The wheelhouses is an experience, only what is caught on the day will be on the menu. Book well in advance but it will be well worth it. Full Marks.

An absolute favourite in Falmouth. The not so well kept secret serves fresh delicious seafood in a fantastic atmosphere. It’s best to go as a group and just order the whole menu, you won’t be disappointed

Dogs are more than welcome! Bookings are only made through the phone and I believe they’re booked up most of October but you can always give it a try! Hope this helps 😊
