This is a very popular spot and always busy for good reason. The hosts were lovely and even gave us the recipe for their delightful sticky toffee pudding. We had a superb meal here and are only disappointed we discovered it on the last night of our short break. We will definitely go back when next in the area. Enjoy

Booked here after reading all the reviews. Sadly, we were disappointed. In need of a refurb, bit dark inside. No atmosphere. Good customer service. Food average. Husband had a steak, asked for rare, was done as medium. Chips of the ready frozen variety. It was all pretty average. Try the Old Ship Aground instead.

We were recommended to try the Wheelhouse Restaurant while on holiday in Minehead.
Lovely warm welcome from the family who own it. A spacious, well laid out comfortable restaurant,
with covid restrictions in place but without it being obvious.
Terrific background music. The food was fabulous. The filet steaks were cooked to perfection and the sticky toffee pudding to follow was just amazing. Our food was served in good time and we would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a first class place to visit. It was certainly the best meal we'd had the whole week we were there and just sorry we hadn't found out about it sooner. We will definitely pop in again the next time we are in the area.

This place definitely deserves its top spot! The restaurant was fully booked on a Wednesday night, we just managed to book the last table the day before. We both had the soup of the day (tomato and sweet chilli) to start and it was lovely, warm chilli heat but not spicy. I had the mushroom stroganoff and hubby had the lamb shank. Both meals were delicious and a good size. We finished with the lemon tart and the bread and butter pudding, both absolutely yummy and we were both stuffed! 4 beers and a coke and the bill was less than £60. The staff were attentive without being overbearing, but lovely to have a conversation with as well. Don’t be put off if you are sat by the bar, you will not feel overlooked.
Even the music was perfect for the venue, and set at a good volume with the owner conscious of it getting too loud. We had a 3 course meal in under 90 minutes as the service was so good, but never felt rushed at any point. Lovely family run place and well worth a visit if you are in the area, just remember to book!!

We went for Sunday Lunch today. We had booked at another venue in Minehead but found it very busy and unorganised. The Wheelhouse were able to fit us in. Very friendly but professional. Excellent Sunday roast. We both had beef which was very tasty and very lean. Vegetables cooked beautifully. We have lived in area fortwo months and this was the best Sunday lunch we have experienced here.
