Reviewed 14 May 2013

We had been wanting to visit the wheelwright for sometime after reading some of the reviews... We arrived and were very briskly taken to our table it's a shame we were not able to have a drink at the bar before hand .. But service was good. Very polite and helpful.. After being seated we were reading through the menu and noticed a few very familiar dishes from our local in honiton ( the railway inn ) I was hoping to try something different as we had ventured out, food was good. ( but not as good :) ) deserts were poor which was a Shame ( I did notice this was pointed out in some other reviews but I wanted to sample for myself ) all in all a nice place but will be sticking to our usual eatery in future . Oh and the antiques are a nice touch! Very interesting

We ate here with friends one night. Service was good, although they were very keen to show us straight to our table the minute we walked through the door. We asked for a drink at the bar first which we really enjoyed before selecting from the menu and being shown to our table when the food was ready.
Food was Ok and reasonable value. The desserts really let it down. I had a"Chocolate Fudge Sundae ". This was served in a glass and was very poor. One small scoop of ice cream, too much spray cream and dry chocolate sponge. My friend had a "Lemon Tiramisu" dry sponge, too much spray cream and lemon curd, again served in a glass - not good. One of our party ordered the cheese - a couple of slices of cheddar, Stilton and under ripe soft cheese, probably bought in the local supermarket. We were not impressed.
The starters and main courses were very good and we will be returning but next time we will not order desserts or cheese..

Took some friends here for dinner. Generally the food was good and at a fair price. The staff were polite, friendly and service was good. The only disappointment were the sweets which did not meet the expectations set by the menu descriptions. Also the cheese selection could be more adventurous. Overall very good and will be going back.

We ate here for the second time since Xmas and both times we have found the Wheelwright to stand out both in absolute terms and particularly for the area. Dining room is snug without being too tightly packed. Menu is great - excellent ingredients offered in a range of interesting dishes that are well presented. Kids menu is usefully more straightforward for the less adventurous. Service is attentive and friendly. All in all a real find which seems to be well supported, so worth booking in advance to be sure of a seat.

Good service and the staff very welcoming. The food was gorgeous (the chips deserve a special mention) with the toffee apple mess completing a nice Valentine's evening. Attention to detail was excellent with the tables decorated nicely. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Wheelwright Inn and would definitely go back.

Our second visit here was for our son's 10th birthday so we ate early with our disabled parents when the restaurant was lovely and quiet. Had a lovely meal - the fish platter was shared and was delicious and huge. Son was being grown up so had venison and loved it! Love browsing the antiques and gifts on display too. Highly recommended.

Found the Wheelwright Inn when looking for somewhere to eat when other places had stopped serving. It was a very good find. The food was very good English pub food and the service was excellent. Also sells an interesting collection of antiques.
