During our stay in Dornoch, we visited the One up twice. The One up offers typical pub food of good quality and has a very accurate and friendly staff. One feels really welcome here!

First of all, the staff were lovely, the barman downstairs was very helpful and the waitress upstairs couldn't be faulted . . unfortunately the food could. The family shared nachos for starters - fairly stale tortilla chips covered in cheese and sweet chilli sauce (?). One member of our party had the chicken and rice soup and he enjoyed that.... More

Pleasant meal with family for a pit stop before returning to our accommodation. Slightly old fashioned inside compared to city restaurants etc but had a nice atmosphere. Reasonably priced for nice decent sized portions! Will visit again as granny liked here!

We ate here twice during our visit to Dornoch. The first time I had a toasted cheese and ham sandwich which was very good. The second time I had a B-L-T, which was excellent. My Dad had soup the first day and a toastie the second day, just plain cheese. Very reasonable pricing, very good value. The service was excellent... More

This little eatery is off the square and could be overlooked easily. Please don't miss it.. The food is fantastic, great selection and reasonably priced. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Portions are generous. Don't miss it.
