I love it here, we managed to sneak in a table for two on a busy night last summer. It was like walking into a friends house, the service and the atmosphere. The food was delicious and plenty of it. Can't wait to get back here on our next visit to Falmouth!

We were lucky enough to get a walk-in table on my birthday due to a cancellation - it seems everyone else had booked waaay in advance, and it's worth it. From the outside it's like a little secret, you wouldn't necessarily know it was there or open, but you open the door and step into the most homely and friendly... More

Wow! What an experience. The Wheelhouse left us discussing the best places we have every eaten, and we quickly ranked it up there with some of the crazy expensive London, Manchester and Edinburgh places we have been fortunate enough to sample. This place is simple. And that's part of its joy. Great chips, bread and salad are the only accompaniments... More

We were recommended to the Wheel House by Steve at the Port Navas Yacht Club when staying in Cornwall. A real cute Seafood restaurant, well hidden by the quay side. Lovely selection of sea food combined with a very personal service makes this place a real gem. I indulged in a lobster and my Partner had mussels; both 'spot on'.... More
