Make sure you make a reservation or go when the restaurant opens. It fills up quickly. Nice menu and excellent service.

We booked a table here as there are not that many eateries in Dornoch to choose from and this one offered steak! The restaurant was clearly going to be booked up later as there were several reservations and a few young waitresses hanging around chatting yet we had to wait a while for our drinks order to be taken.

Arrived in Dornoch and asked B&B to recommend places to eat, we were given several choices and decided to go to The Sutherland. We hadn't reserved but staff were more than helpful and showed us to our table. It became very busy but staff were attentive and helpful. Food was very good as was the bottle of wine. Definitely recommend.

You will not be disappointed by a meal here. The staff are friendly & welcoming and the menu is excellent. It would be safer to book a meal in advanced as it is a popular venue.

We would have liked to entered this namesake for a meal but were greated by a very rude woman who closed the door in our face because it was fully booked .Disgusting behaviour and does not deserve even one star.I am a Sutherland but I only expect civil treatment.I hope this restaurant notices this comment then hopefully employs better staff...

We were recommended to eat here by the Burghfield House Hotel and we were pleasantly surprised. Very old décor felt like we were having tea at our granny's house but this made it even more enjoyable. We had originally made our reservation for 8pm but they were happy to move it forward when we asked. The staff we came across... More
