Staff were very welcoming and friendly, food was excellent. Not the cheapest place in Dornoch but you get what you pay for. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in... More

We came to this little gem of a restaurant on the recommendation of our B&B hostess. This is the kind of place we like - good honest food at reasonable prices with friendly efficient service. It's probably advisable to book as we were lucky to get the last unreserved table at 7pm on a Monday night.

This is a well-above average local restaurant, probably the best dining in Dornoch (outside the Links House). It has a well-rounded menu, featuring local beef, lamb, fish and produce. The ambience is charming and pleasant, service is good. Wine list is adequate albeit not special.

My father and I ate here on our golf trip through Scotland. Overall, it was a nice meal and definitely an improvement over a pub alternative. Would recommend on a trip through Dornoch.

In Dornoch, there is a fairly limited choice of restaurants and as three of them were either full or closed (it was Monday evening) we opted for Sutherland House. If you simply need food then fine, but if you're looking for quality, then from my personal experience, I'd suggest you go somewhere else. Having eaten a lot of seriously good... More

My husband and I had a very pleasant meal at this restaurant and the two ladies, presumably the owners, we're so friendly and welcoming. Their staff were also very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed during the dinner. All in all a pleasant evening and dinner in the pretty village of Dornoch.

Poor quality haddock served with even poorer quality chips and for some reason carrots???? Seemed like veg had been rejects from the lunch menu. Steak completely burnt with the worst pepper corn sauce ever imaginable. Whole pepper corns in the sauce?? Such a nice place with great service in need of a big shake up in the galley!
