You are always sure of a warm welcome from Margaret and the staff at Sutherland House.
Looking for the best steak in town then this is where you will find it. The restaurant is warm and cosy with friendly efficient service and highly recommended!

This restaurant was very comfortable and made you feel that you were eating at home. The meal was very good and the meringue was great and also HUGE!

“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.

“good food and decent prices”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

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.
