We were in town for a wedding and called ahead a day before and booked a table for 12. When we arrived we were told that we would be seated at two tables of 6 - not ideal when we wanted to catch up with friends we hadn't seen in ages. We asked to move the tables together but were... More

We walked around the town to check out places to eat and were thrilled to have chosen Sutherland House. The surroundings and service were great. The food was delicious and fresh. We shared avacado and prawn salad to start, lovely and light. My husband had the steak pie which was rich with melt in your mouth pieces of meat, maybe... More

Had a good dinner at the Sutherland House. We ordered the steak dish...both with the sauces. I had the peppercorn...tasty sauce but I would suggest getting it on the side - there was way too much. My husband order the mushroom and scotch sauce which he loved, although not that strong in scotch taste. Despite being Scotland...the steak was cooked... More

This is a great traditional Scottish restaurant. The food is very good and the service very friendly. We were made to feel very welcome. This is a great choice for those looking for that true local experience.

My uncle, who lives in Dornoch, loves this place and celebrates all the big dates here, like birthdays and anniversary's. It's the perfect place, and you feel right at home. The people that work here couldn't have been nicer to us. And we spent almost an hour just talking with other folks before we had our dinner. So atmosphere, awesome!... More

Warm welcome from female maître d' and bar person. Starters and main courses, three of which were sirloin steaks, were obviously well sourced and properly cooked to order. The waiting staff were well dressed, well trained and courteous and the ambience of the establishment made for an excellent dining experience. John S South Lanarkshire

Make a reservation and enjoy a great meal. The menu is creative, featuring gourmet twists on traditional offerings. I had a venison roast that was amazing. Desserts, all home made, were special. The owner paid individual attention to every table. The small restaurant itself is lovely.
