Disappointed as they have stopped taking credit cards. Had to hike it to ATM. Don't tend to carry £20/30 around. Would come back if they have a re-think.

On our last night in Dornoch, we decided to have a takeaway. We popped in and chose what we wanted from an extensive menu. I think they had just recently changed the menu as when we were served by a young boy, he didnt know where to find the meal we ordered on the till. He went in the back... More
