Mevagissey's famous Wheel House Restaurant is family owned and has been established for over 50 years. For as long as anybody can remember, the Wheel House Restaurant and Guest House has dominated the West Wharf of Mevagissey Harbour.
In its former days as a Net Loft, John Wesley is reported to have made his first sermon in Mevagissey here and ironically it is the pews from the old Wesleyan Chapel in Mevagissey that now furnish the Lower Deck.
In 1967 the Queen Mum came to visit and although several refurbishments have taken place over the years, the Restaurant has remained much the same as it was then.
These days it has a very much tongue in cheek Shippy theme with several full size Pirates watching you while you eat, one of them nicknamed Laurence for his uncanny resemblance to a certain Interior Designer.
None of the above should distract you however from the real business of the Wheel House, their reputation is for Fresh Fish and Fresh Produce turned into a great value Menu with something for everyone.
Chef's Catch of the Day Fresh Fish Specials are offered both at Lunch and Dinner. For the less Fishy there is plently of Choice on the Menu of Cornish Meats and Vegetarian Dishes.
To complement the Menu there is a carefully selected Wine list from Fowey Wines, Draught Beers and Cornish Real Ales.
Aware of the need to help lower the carbon footprint a vigorous recycling regime has been in place for years with all tins, cans, glass, bottles, plastic and cardboard used being reycled, even the Fish Frames are used for bait and go back to the Fishermen.
The Wheel House opens for Breakfast at 9.00 a.m. and seves food all day alongside Coffees and Cream Teas. Evening service for Dinner starts at 6.00 p.m.
Note: from Mid November to the beginning of March, the Wheel House Restaurant is Closed for Dinner, except from 27 to 31 December inclusive when it is also open for New Year's Eve.
