Our review

Dornoch, a charming seaside town on Sutherland East coast, an hour north of Inverness, is famous for Royal Dornoch Golf course, Dornoch Cathedral (where Madonna was married), and is on the award winning North Coast 500 coastal route, named one of the best Road trips in the world”. This Eagle is a welcoming old Coaching Inn built in the 1840s, named after the crest of the Clan Munro and the oldest established hotel in Dornoch.

Smartly renovated for the 21st traveller, the Eagle is like a contemporary Pub & Restaurant with Rooms with nine en suite bedrooms, named after Scottish malt whiskies, furnished in soft tweed fabrics, with accommodation for couples and families. The Bar is a popular local for town residents with a buzzing atmosphere – live music entertainment on selected nights. The drinks list is exemplary with no less than 65 gins featuring several local brands including Ben Wyvis and Rock Rose. Fine Scottish craft ales, draught beers, wines and choice of 80 whiskies. The Bar staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic so will guide you through the various brands, blends, smoky, smooth flavours to suit your taste.

Hearty, traditional, good pub food is offered based on local seasonal produce, speciality daily dishes and all family favourites – Cullen Skink soup, fish and chips, scampi, burgers, pasta, steak and ale pie, and homemade puddings. After a day out on the golf course, fishing, shooting, visiting whisky distilleries, ancient castles or strolling along the sandy beach, The Eagle is the place to stay for good food and comfortable night’s sleep. A full Scottish breakfast (porridge, eggs, haggis, Stornoway black pudding) will set you up for another day of golf or touring around.

Dornoch is busy during the summer, so perhaps plan a trip in October for the Whisky Festival, a four-day programme of food and drink events around the town. New Year is also a time of traditional festivities. Eric De Venny and his wife Suzanne (Chef) are the managers of The Eagle of which Eric was named Publican of the Year 2016 – so a perfectly poured gin or dram and traditional Scottish hospitality is guaranteed at this friendly Inn.
