We were here for dinner about 2 months ago and the food was everything we expected it to be and better. There was plenty choice and the portions were pretty decent. The staff were pretty attentive, the food came out really fast and the bill was less than we thought it would be. We will be back as soon as... More

With no reservation and arriving at Sutherland House on a busy night, the super friendly and accommodating staff found us a terrific table. Although they apologized that we might have a wait before they could take our dinner order, they were thoughtfully attentive and brought wine and starters quite promptly. Nothing fancy but seriously good food. Everything fresh and prepared... More

This family owned restaurant serves Scottish food at its very best. We went early evening - it gets VERY busy as it is so popular- not surprising as the food is second to none. We were greeted in a very friendly manner and served, all through the meal, by very pleasant people who catered for our every need. We began... More

This is a real gem. They had gread service and food. They were able to accommodate a party of 6 on a Sunday afternoon. Lots of locals seem to eat here. Great desserts including sticky toffee pudding.

We've been before, what I find remarkable is their beef. I don't think I have found a better place in Scotland for beef.

This is a fairly traditional restaurant and food with a pleasant dining room and friendly service. It is popular so worth booking. There was plenty of choice for us on the menu and the food is reasonably priced.

A delightful meal in the main square of Dornoch at the Sutherland House with a charming dining room and a friendly welcome. The food was excellent, a homemade broccoli and brie soup and my particular favourite - the seafood salad, smoked and poached salmon and plenty of prawns. On a Monday night the restaurant was very busy, all tables occupied... More
