    My experience of the food in Liquid is that their chips are nice, but I would never eat their chicken curry and rice again. The rice was congealed and the curry was dry.

    Another place I would rather never eat again is The Book Shop Cafe at Bews. It took me half an hour to get served last time I was in. Our drinks weren't served while the woman was cooking the bacon for my BLT Wrap - and the George Foreman wasn't used properly (lid wasn't down) making the bacon extra greasy and meant it had to be turned...

    Another place I've had bad service is the Central Hotel. Went in with a couple of friends. The guy that took the chips over to the table slammed the plate down, was not impressed.

    What happened to customer satisfaction in this town? Or, for that matter, service with a smile?

    Gurn over... last weekend I went for a meal to Le Bistro with a few Friends from TN. The meal was fantastic. Quick friendly service and we didn't have to wait long for our food at all. And there's one waitress which is absolutely fantastic - I think her name's Jo.
    "People may say what they wish, but we are actually under no compulsion to listen." LJ, and I do so wholeheartedly agree!

    the cafe over Jim Bews in Thurso is OK, especially if you get a window seat, but it's a bit noisy, not what you'ld call relaxing. The coffee machine must be over 100 decibels - come to think of it it's probably illegal! The coffee and cakes are OK, that's my main criterion!

    I agree wee cezzy1234 the Northern Sands food is fantastic, good price, and good size plateful. The owner Donnie is a great chef.

    Had a fab meal at the Northern Sands at Dunnet last night.

    Nice presentation, fresh produce, good portions, reasonably priced and friendly staff (makes a change!).

    Highly recommended.

    The Trentham near Dornoch does an excellent steak - still sizzling on the platter - fresh veg and large portions. Their sweets are brilliant too. Went to the Halladale Inn today, lovely steak, great pudding and friendly staff as well.

    Hasn't the St Clair in Thurso changed hands now ? I think it is Brian Cardosi and the wife who bought it a few months ago. Neverless you get good food regardless .

    The Upper Deck in Scrabster is back in business. We went on Saturday night and it was excellent - new decor is lovely too!

    Default Northern Sands - Thumbs Up

    Having just visited the Northern Sands to sample their Sunday carvery I must agree with the previous entries, giving it a double 'Thumbs Up'!

    A nice selection of starters - not too heavy - and our kids say that the soup & rolls were 'gorgeous'. The carvery had 4 roasts on offer, luverly big Yorkshire Puddings, a good choice of veg (the 'pears in mint sauce' being an unusual but very tasty addition to the line-up) and plenty of gravy and different sauces to boot. It was all finished off with a small, but perfectly formed, selection of sweets.

    As a couple who eat out regularly we were both delighted. The presentation was immaculate, the staff friendly and helpful and as for the price - 3 adults and 2 kids for less than £60 including drinks seemed pretty good to me.

    Congratulations to the new owners - we'll be back.
