Do not heed the good reviews. If this is the best Minehead has to offer with food it must be a culinary desert. Old fashioned decor and food that promised to be homemade came out of the freezer. At least it didn’t cost the earth...and they have a hygiene rating of 5.More

After reading the reviews I was very disappointed with this meal. Being at the seaside I opted for the battered cod and chips. It arrived and was very underwhelming. A small fillet in soggy batter. Was like a frozen supermarket fish from the value range,...I would not recommend this as a main meal choice. The pudding redeemed the meal, amaretto crème brûlée was delicious.More

We enjoyed our first meal at The Wheelhouse so much that we booked in for the following night too! The hosts (Gary and Kim) were so welcoming and so accommodating. The menu was varied and everything we had tasted so good. Thank you!

Unfortunately this was probably our last visit as my sister is selling her house in Minehead. We have had so many excellent meals here and want to thank the owners for their friendly service and the many delicious home made puddings we have eaten. The...menu is varied and everything we have tried has been very good. My husband is particularly fond of the mushroom starter.More

Efficient small restaurant in the middle of Minehead which did not live up to its rating. Soup was excellent but probably the only thing which did not come out of a freezer.
