Where to eat

We do not offer evening meals at Pentland Lodge House, there are many excellent places to eat very close by.  However we would never like to see anyone go hungry so we can rustle up a supper tray for you if needed.  We are also happy for you to use our dining room for take-away meals (just ask us for plates etc).

We keep sample menus of most places to eat in Thurso.  We have also eaten in most of them and are happy to let you know our views.  Being so close to the sea it goes without saying that you can get excellent fish but our local beef and lamb are also extremely tasty. From fine dining to takeaways, there is something to suit every taste and budget.

Most places do not require booking in advance and are within a short distance of each other so you can take a look before you eat.  However there are some places that it is best to book in advance.
