My wife and I decided, against all the advice of locals, to try the food at the Eagle Hotel in Dornoch. It was Wednesday (Burger Day) we ordered the special burger at £10 for two. The manager (or whatever employee he was) served us our drinks and took our orders then disappeared. No customers (other than us) and no staff to speak to. The bell rang and we knew it was our order because there were no other customers. The manager (or whatever) went for our burgers and served us (quite politely). The meal was served on a wooden board (a bit unhygeinic we thought) but we tried the burger with salad, coleslaw & Chips.
The burger bun was cheap and sticky, the homemade burger fell out of the bun,in bits, when bitten and it was totally tasteless with no seasoning at all. The salad was OK and the coleslaw may have been homemade or bought in.
The manager (or whoever) was most apologetic, and said that he and the Head Chef agreed they were disgusting, and he did not charge for the meal. We were grateful for that gesture but will not be back, unless we hear any good reports.
We were also not very happy that we were the only two in the bar and the employee disappeared, leaving us on our own at all times.
