The Wheelhouse Restaurant is located in the beautiful seaside town of Minehead on the edge of Exmoor in West Somerset. Minehead is a firm favourite as a holiday destination for families, couples and those using Minehead as a base to explore the wider area. The town itself has fabulous beaches, a historic harbour and a 14th Century ‘Church on the Hill’. The nearby medieval village of Dunster with its Castle, Yarn Market, Tithe Barn and a wealth of listed buildings is a favourite place to visit for many tourists. The restaurant is positioned on the bustling and very pretty tree-lined Avenue which also boosts an excellent selection of independent shops, galleries and traditional seaside souvenir gift shops, convenience stores and other well-known retail outlets.
The Wheelhouse is an impressive detached Tudor style building with large outside seating area to the front and exceptional owners’ accommodation with fabulous roof terrace, parking and outbuildings to the rear. The ground floor restaurant offers an interior décor in style with the exterior of the building with quality fixtures and fittings providing an inviting and relaxed atmosphere for customers. The patio area provides the perfect location in which to enjoy the world go by sheltered by the canopy of the trees. The current owners operate the restaurant as a ‘Lifestyle’ business choosing to trade Tuesday – Thursday evenings from 5pm, opening for the lunch trade as well as evenings Friday & Saturday 11.30 – 2pm and Sunday Lunch only. The Wheelhouse reduces its trading hours to weekends only over the shoulder months of the year, closing for 6 weeks at the end of December. The spacious 4 double bed residential accommodation is exceptional and must be seen to be truly appreciated. The décor is to the same high stand as the restaurant and benefits from a large roof terrace accessed via the 2nd floor bedroom.
