I visited the Wheelhouse recently as part of a school trip with seven students and two other members of staff. The restaurant couldn't have done more to accommodate us. In addition to offering the boys a free drink with their meal, they were patient while they took forever to decide what they wanted and forgiving when several changed their order. They even provided jugs of water without being asked when drinks ran out. The food arrived quickly and was superb, the portions were massive even on the "children's" meals.

As for my food, it was probably the best fish and chip meal I've ever had. A delightful seafood platter consisting of scampi, salt and pepper squid, battered scallops and lemon sole, every aspect was pretty much perfect. The scallops were tender and full of flavour, the squid peppery and interesting and the sole delicate and perfectly moist. The meal was faultless, and I can't thank the staff enough for their excellent service and the brilliant food.

This fish restaurant is the BEST fish & chip's that we have had for a long long while. Fish known to our family as Rock Salmon, Huss or Dog Fish, it's a delicious for any one that want's to try it. We loved Dartmouth, but finding this fish & chip shop that sold this fish ( please note that we cannot get it where we live now) so we had a lovely surprise by seeing this fish on the menus.When we go back to Devon on our next holiday, Guess where we will be going.

If you want great food at a great price, served by friendly and efficient staff, this is the place to go!
Here you can get a generous breakfast or fish and chips to eat in the clean, bright and well decorated restaurant

If you visit Dartmouth, we highly recommend Wheelhouse.

We are very, very suprised to hear that you thought your chips were bland.

We are frying delicious new potatoes at the moment - a top quality potato - rightly called "00heaven" - which produces sweet, tasty chips with that earthy, new potato taste.
DELICIOUS? yes! BLAND - I really don't think so!

You may be referring to the fact that our chips tasted CLEAN as we regularly change and filter our oil and fry in Palm oil to avoid that lingering stale oil or animal fat taste. It;'s all a matter of preference i guess but our fantastic reviews on trip advisor show that - on the whole - our customers love what we do.

If there is too much vinegar on them, please say so and we will serve you another portion - or give us a heads up if you like a light sprinkling of vinegar. SIMPLES!!
