Marco Pierre White Wheeler's is a new concept that looks to build on the history of Wheeler’s, which is famed for being the oldest fish brand in the world, counting Lucien Freud and Walt Disney amongst some of its famous diners.

However, it is not just for fish lovers, there is plenty of meat on the menu too. Marco has created a menu that gives a nod to the history but has evolved it to what today’s diner wants.

Flavours that represent the history of wheeler's and showcase the classics such as Wheeler's Fish Pie, in addition to new favourites like Lobster Thermidor and Maxim's Quail's eggs Maintenon.

With a separate bar area, Wheeler’s Oyster Bar & Grill Room, is not just for dining. It’s the perfect setting for a business meeting, after work drink or bar snack. There is something on offer for every occasion.

The service from as soon as we walked in was very good.
Staff extremely polite and jovial.
Although my main dish was not what I had ordered i excepted the beef dish so I could eat at the same time as my friend even though the waiter offered to change it. This actually was a blessing as the beef was so good.
The Waiter did apologise and offered us some wine or dessert but as the food was excellent I declined.

This is the first time I had been in this restaurant and it will now be one of my more regular places to eat.

Well done to all.

Can’t fault the meal but it was expensive for what it was and it infuriates me having 12.5% extra for average service but made to look a cheapscate if I challenge.

The set menu is excellent and is very good value with the Open Table deal. Great food with a bottle of Malbec included!
Starters were hot salmon and duck in a crispy roll both delicious. Mains of a beautifully cooked sliced steak and a fillet of sea bream were also quite delicious. With excellent friendly service, what more could you want.

Had a LOVELY dinner, but was rushed out of the restaurant. We then asked if we could have a drink outside at the bar and they said yes in the lobby. Then found out that since was not staying at the hotel, we were not able to have a drink. Shame because it was just a bad ending to a nice evening.

We were promptly seated and then abandoned for the next 15 minutes. As time was going by and we had a concert to get to in the next hour and a half, my wife went to the bar to order two glass of champagne to get things moving. At the time, there were only three tables occupied in the entire restaurant. When the food finally did arrive, it was entirely forgettable. My wife had fish and chips and I had a fish cake. The mains weren't bad, but were very expensive (£136 with a glass of champers and a glass of wine each) for what was basically pub fare. This place has virtually no redeeming qualities.

Soulesss in the evening. A simple order for the one fish they had, Dover Sole at £48, for simple grilled sole off the bone was delivered as an off the bone sole covered in sauce a la forester and cold.

My companions fish pies looked good.

This has got to be one of the best value for money with quality food deals around. The offer of set menu (3 starters and 3 main courses) with a bottle of Malbec was excellent. The starters of Charcuterie platter (a meal in itself!) and smoked mackerel pate were excellent and the mains of Sea bass and guinea fowl were equally as good. I will certainly be returning!

Perhaps just unlucky - it used to be very consistent and consistently good. Large parts of the menu were not available because their grill wasn't working, and other items besides.

Quality of food was rather average.

A lovely restaurant with good food and great customer service. My only suggestion for my chosen dessert which was an apple tart dish, was that the apple should be served warm or hot - this was shared with the team at the restaurant. But overall, the service was good, the prosecco was flowing and the food was very nice.

Nice place and ambiance. Service was a bit quirky and food slow to arrive (even though it was pretty empty). But once it arrived the food was very good. Ate off the daily specials menu, Scallops were perfect. Shepherds pie and roasted cod both very good.
Great food. But service not so good if you're in a rush.

Express lunch menu is a great value option however they did not have 2 of the items only one of which was replaced. The restaurant is very regal but the service was a little chaotic. They had just started a new menu so some teething issues can be accepted so definitely worth another visit.

The ambience is usual for a restaurant of this quality. Crisp white table cloth, well shined cutlery and glasses. Good level of brightness and airy.

The menu is good, precise, short ish and well explained. Food was no surprise when it arrived.

We felt the service was a little pushy while we were there for a quick bite.

The restaurant is in a lovely setting, and the staff are capable and attentive. However the food was overpriced (£45 for Dover Sole), the restaurant was virtually empty on a Friday lunchtime, and my lamb shoulder lunch special tasted as if it was cooked and keep warm too long. I first went to Wheelers 30 years ago and somehow it feels a little tired. My guests enjoyed their food however, the wine was good and the location excellent.

We were given the menu which looked very good but afterwards we were told that due to a gas problem we could only choose from 2 main courses. Neither of which I would have chosen. I ordered a glass of rose before dinner but they opened a whole bottle - as if I was going to drink a bottle of rose before dinner!

Disappointing

What a great place. Attentive service..knowledgeable staff. Food delivered in very food time. Oysters were outstanding. Saw guy on next table with the Prawn Cocktail, looked so good that's what I ordered! Fish Curry for main. Perfect for lunch, well seasoned and flavoursome didn't blow your head off.

Dropped a star on overall value as the wine list is a little on the heavy side (££'s) that's all.t

When taking our order, we asked the waiter if it would be possible to change the chips to the dauphinoise potatoes, in which he confirmed and said no problem. I ordered the ribeye with Grilled oysters with jus à la Parisienne and my partner ordered the ribeye with Sauce au poivre both cooked medium rare in addition we ordered the cabbage and bacon side along with some garlic mushrooms. When the steaks arrived they both arrived with sauce au poivre and buttered new potatoes and no sides. We informed the waiter that this is not what we ordered and that we would both like dauphinoise potatoes. With a blank look, and no apology, the waiter then proceeded to take away the buttered potatoes leaving our steaks at the table to go cold. After a few minutes I called the waiter over to ask him to put the steaks under the heat lamp as we have to wait for our sides. After about 7-8 minutes the team then came back with our meal, but low and behold return with the buttered new potatoes and one portion of dauphinoise potatoes and only the creamed cabbage side. At this point we were getting frustrated. To then make matters worse the dauphinoises’ were not cooked properly, they were cold in the centre in which I then had to inform the waiter and as I did I also had to ask where the mushrooms were as they have not arrived. He informed us it would be another 5-6 mins. As we got towards the very end of our steak, the mushrooms and the reordered dauphinoise came to the table without any apology. I can probably imagine why as they must have been equally embarrassed of the experience we have received thus far, however it was not good enough. Following a completely appalling experience, we both decided to order the apple crumble, as we both believe there couldn’t be much that could go wrong. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The apples were not cooked through and, like the dauphinoise potatoes, the centre of the crumble was cold.

Really enjoyed the scenery and service here. Whilst I was a bit disappointed with the food. The lamb was too charred on the outside for my liking and the fish curry packed no punch in my opinion.
I would go back there as the service was excellent and I thought it was good value for the food we had.
I would also recommend it to other people as the decor is really nice.
