Unassuming from the outside the Sutherland Hotel offers a warm greeting and good food. Portions sizes are large and everything is freshly cooked. Try and leave space for the lovely home made desserts! Excellent chicken liver pâté starter and smoked salmon salad main - loads of fresh fish. 5 starters and mains, 3 desserts, wine and drinks all for £176.... More

The staff are all friendly and welcoming. The menu was diverse and the food nice. The helpings were large, almost overwhelming, but tasty. The food was good home cooking. This is not fine dining but still very nice.

Excellent restaurant around the corner from the Royal Dornoch Golf Club. We had an wonderful meal, with generous sides, and topped it off with a tasty sticky toffee pudding! Staff was warm and welcoming on a cold, rainy night in early July!

Stopped into this quaint little restaurant in the main town square on the recommendation of one of the owner's family members (who happens to caddy at Royal Dornoch). Great food, inviting and welcoming atmosphere, and delicious steaks. Most restaurants in the town shutter up relatively early (last seating at 830 which can be difficult for afternoon/evening golfers) but Sutherland is... More

When you are in Dornoch you must visit Margaret in this charming family run restaurant. Lovely comfortable surroundings with fresh traditional Scottish fare. Margaret's son is a first class caddy at Royal Dornoch, her other son is the chef. Sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream...amazing!!

We both had the salmon dish as our main course and were not disappointed. The salmon was very tasty and moist so had obviously been cooked with attention. Some salmon fillets can be a bit on the dry side but not in this restaurant. Who ever the chef is I have to say well done to them. The staff were... More
