We're not in Paris. Sutherland House wouldn't last there or in any other culinary hot spot. But in Dornoch, Scotland, Sutherland House represents a really quite wonderful option for dinner. A cheery welcome, a warm and inviting setting, attentive and prompt service, good food, reasonably priced. I had smoked salmon to start and then a steak smothered in pepper sauce.... More

Three of us ordered Cullen Skink and one of our party had no fish in his which is hardly acceptable as it is basically a fish soup. When he complained he was met with disbelief but no apology and no offer to deduct it from the bill. I ordered lamb, which to be fair, was well cooked but totally hidden... More

We eat there twice. The first day in Dornoch, the Southland House restaurant was recommended to us and we were glade we tried it. The food is wonderful. The restaurant is somewhat small so a reservation is a must. I had never tried haggis before and it was really good. Their fish was also wonderful. The dinner was so good... More

We have been coming to Dornoch for several years and ALWAYS make plans for at least one dinner at Sutherland House. Margaret and the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is ALWAYS wonderful- Ample portions and full of flavor. The Chicken Glenmorangie is my favorite, but the pheasant is also quite good. They always have specials so check... More

Have not been back here for several years, and on a whim decided to visit again, and must say glad we did. We came in a bit late yet they still accommodated us, with the whole menu to chose from, so very friendly about it to. Food was great, large portions and freshly prepared, a step above your typical pub... More

Over last ten years or so we have visited Dornoch to golf and always return to have dinner here. This was probably our fourth visit. The chef is still wonderful and his Mother welcomes guests and oversees the beverages! We ate here both nites enjoying Cajun pork, beef medallions, mint lamb loin, and bacon wrapped chicken. Vegetables cooked perfectly with... More
