A charming local restaurant right in the centre of Dornoch. Family run. The tables are well spaced, and impeccably set. Comfortable dining chairs. A welcoming fire. You feel right at home. The food is delicious whether steaks, pheasant, venison, salmon, haddock, a steak and ale pie or the vege options. Plenty of starters and desserts, all good sized servings. All... More

Visited Dornoch for the long weekend and ate at Sutherland House twice so that speaks volumes on its own. Ladies who serve are all uniformly charming and welcoming. My companion loved their special: medallions of fillet. I joined them for night two and enjoyed it as much. Sticky toffee pudding to die for. All in all a lovely warm welcoming... More

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
