“Our favorite in Dornoch”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Been coming to the Sutherland House since 1991. Always the best in service and food from Margaret and Callum. Soups and desserts (the fruit crumbles!) especially. The best steak I've had in Scotland. Not a restaurant, but a home with fine cuisine to our group of across- the- pond golfers.

Warm welcome good food and friendly staff. Minor grumble was very stong peppercorn sauce on the steak, would advise others to ask for it "on the side"

“An excellent meal”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

On a rare evening out as a couple we ate here. A very friendly welcome from the owner. Even though it was not too busy there was a nice atmosphere. Prawn and avocado salad to start was excellent and fresh. Venison casserole was very tender. Cranberry sauce was very rich. Vegetables came as standard and were excellent cooked to perfection. Boiled potatoes and mash make a welcome change to the obligatory pile of chips you get in most restaurants. Had to help my other half out with the meringue for dessert as it was huge. Again freshly home made and nice and chewy in the middle. Over all it was an excellent meal priced very reasonably for such fresh food.

“Delicious Food and Friendly Service”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

We had a most enjoyable Saturday evening meal at the Sutherland. In a party of six, all loved their meals. Warning - appetizer portions are large, so you might want to consider sharing. My chicken entree was moist and juicy, with a decadent whisky cream sauce - so good!

“Excellent”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

My partner and I ate at the Sutherland on the recommendation of the couple who ran the B&B we stayed in. Sutherland House is conveniently located in Dornoch and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome.The menu provided a good selection for all courses, the food was well cooked and presented and represented good value. From the number of covers during the evening I would recommend booking
