Myself and my wife visited the Eagle at Easter (about a week after reopening after an extensive refurb). The first impression was very good. The new decor is very stylish and the bar is more welcoming than before.I'm afraid the service lets the side down. Some of the staff didn't look interested, and one of the girls was chewing gum, and walking around like she was in detention. One girl, called Hannah was very courteous, and served us our meal and drinks.
Unfortunately the food was disappointing. The Haddock Goujons (priced at £8.95) was a poor size portion, and not that nice, and the other meals were just OK. Not quite a main, not quite a starter size.
The only other observation is that the place completely lacks atmosphere, which is a shame, but it could be so much more than what it is.
We also went into another pub in the village of Dornoch and it was very lively and full of atmosphere.
If The Eagle could address these issues, it would be a very VERY nice experience.
