Yes, not a good time to ask for feedback. We left before receiving anything bar a jug of water, having waited an hour and seeing at least three tables ahead of ours. Clearly very understaffed in the kitchen and fairly so front-of-house. This was obvious and people understand the difficulties in getting going again. What was lacking was a leader who was prepared to explain the problems and tell people their options and the reality. That was a complete void. Apart from that the staff were very pleasant and did their best. Hope this helps. Best for the season.

Very good Sunday lunch served by excellent staff. The food concept is extremely good and represents a really good addition to the choices available in Dornoch. This is a venue that deserves support from diners both local and visiting.

Lovely afternoon in the garden. Sturdy comfortable picnic tables, brollies for shade and shelter! Background music too. The drink choice was limited, only 1 type of gin and vodka. Understaffing meant service was slow, however service was excellent, very polite, friendly and apologetic for wait.

Originally our table was by the door but we asked to change as it was rather cold and draughty. We moved to a table near the fire which was much better.

The food was lovely, but the service was a little slow and we were seated in a middle table not far from the open door and it was very cold as the front door downstairs was also open. I ended up putting my jacket on, which is not conducive to lingering over lunch and, e.g., ordering more coffee. Other diners also had jackets on. Not good!

Due to Covid regulations we had to eat early and leave by 8.00pm so the atmosphere was as you’d expect for early evening dining. However.... we look forward to returning under more normal circumstances

Lovely staff. Just the right amount of chatty and also leaving us to our meal. Great ambience, and will be even nicer with music, once you are allowed again. Food was excellent though a little expensive to put extras on your burger. £1.50 for a few bits of onion?
