Not a good place to go - the only reason it gets custom is because it's one of only two places open after 1am. The floor is sticky. The staff are rude. The toilets, although they're decorated nicely, are dirty. The light up dancefloor is...More

At first I was afraid, I was petrified. Revellers stories of Da Wheel, it's name is legend around these parts. Stuck on the Shetland islands waiting to get off shore and thought that I deserved to be punished so visited Da Wheel. It's well known...More

Let's start at the door where the "experience" began.... The door staff were rude and on a power trip. It was like walking into the 1980's, if the 1980's were composed of urine and faeces. On venturing deeper into the pub, urine and faeces was...More

I often stay in Shetland. Still searching for a great pub. This was one of the worst, mainly due to the smell, it is stinking of Sweat , sick, rotten air. Shetland people deserve better than this. What an imbarrasment for visitors.

Get your own oxygen supply if you are entering Da Wheel. Stink of urine and unwashed old drunks. Come to think of it, smell like most pubs in Shetland.

Was in Lerwick for the fabulous Up Helly Aa and was told by lots of people that hardly anywhere would be open for business the following day. We had hours to waste before the ferry, and feeling slightly hungover and tired were pleasantly surprised to...More
