Excellent food

On our recent visit to Dornoch we chose to eat at Sutherland House twice because the food at this restaurant is so good. The owner Margaret and her team provide excellent and friendly service. We would recommend this restaurant when visiting Dornoch.

Good variety of food choices. We found the food and service both very good indeed. Suggest reservations as it was very busy on the night we dined there.

In 2013 our group at a great meal at Sutherland House. I loved the haggis starter. On this return visit I had the haggis, neeps, and tatties as my main course. Delicious, with a lovely whiskey sauce. We would have liked a return during our 5 night stay in Dornoch, but it had just closed for the season. But...we'll be... More

Over the years I have come to know the manageress who always remembers us, she is very attentive and its clear she values our custom. The menu has rarely changed in all my visits and this is probably... More

Apart from that minor deficiency everything was as it should be.... More

This is one of our favorite places when we are in Dornoch. The owners are so very nice and the food is wonderful and full of flavor - Yes, there is good food in Scotland! The fish is always fresh and the deserts are fantastic! Can't wait to visit next August.
