Went to Sutherland on a Sunday evening after a long day of sightseeing and travelling. The flower decoration on the outside was splendid, it actually made us to visit the restaurant. We have ordered a two course menu and really enjoyed the food. The food tasted really good and the cost was nominal.

We went to Sutherlands yesterday at the end of a long day and we weren't disappointed. The barman was really friendly as were the staff, and despite the restaurant being full remained professional, courteous and helpful. Drinks are a little pricey, but the food menu is good, varied and tasty. The kitchen did well to meet the demand. Was more... More

Visited twice on our recent break and on both occasions had the roast topside which was very tasty and good value for money at £8.95 each,there was a large serving of beef on each visit, the staff were friendly and helpfull the interior was okay. The drink prices were on the high side but we will return on our next... More

We visited on our first night. All courses were lovely and very good portion sizes. Good value for money and good service. Will return.

Pity we were taken in by the beautiful flowers outside the pub. I should have known they are relying totally on the beauty of the place to get customers inside. The inside of the pub is nothing special, quite dark but comfortable enough. The service was terrible. The waitress was curt to the point of being rude and we had... More

We went to Sutherlands as we didn't quite like all the other menus around Bowness and this was our last resort. We went in because it looked really pretty outside and we were starving. Once inside, the decor was a bit dated but I assume that's one thing they may want to keep - just maybe let more natural light... More

from the outside all looks good until you step inside. Food can best be described as regenerated microwave fodder! Its awful. Staff simply want to turn you around as quickly as possible. Décor is dark, dingy, and tired. A bit like the food. Do not be tempted by the pretty floral display outside, seems the so called restaurant pays more... More

We entered the restaurant about 8- 45pm, shortly after the owner turned the sign to closed and removed the tills, the barman was cleaning down the bar and closed it before asking if anyone wished for another drink, and we hadn't even been served our main meal! I chose the 2 course roast which was at best OK, however my... More

Lovely location near the town - you will notice it as is is decked out in flowers outside. Small area outside to sit and have a drink/food. Food nice and well presented. Stopped on two occasions - had to send my pint back and whilst it was replaced with no argument , it still seemed sub standard . Think if... More

Good choice of meals, nicely cooked with fresh vegetables. A variety of roasts and the specials menu was great value for a starter and main course for £9.95. Would visit again and recommend.
