The Wheelhouse

Upton Slip Falmouth TR11 3DQ

This rustic little eatery doesn’t just stick to the adage of serving fresh seafood straight from the quay out front, it goes one step further by having just four simple seafood dishes on the menu – oysters, mussels, crab and prawns (the only additions are wine, coffee, bread and a cheese board). Served informally in Portuguese cataplanas, it’s the sort of meal for which you need to put your bib on and be prepared to get messy. The cooking is simple and unsophisticated, yet has been refined over years of service and the results are amazing. The wheelhouse is definitely one for booking in advance, weeks in advance in fact, this place fills up fast in summer!
