Review on Sands Hotel, The Watersound Restaurant
Originally built as a fish store in 1860, this imposing hotel stands alongside the shore of Scapa Flow, with great views of Burray Harbour, Watersound Bay and South Ronaldsay. Not surprisingly, it's a favourite getaway for tourists, as well as divers who come to explore the wrecks in the nearby waters.
Local seafood and other Orkney produce figures on the dinner menu in the Watersound Restaurant, which has been decked out in suitably nautical style. Deep-fried Grimbister Farm cheese is served with homemade chutney, salmon is accompanied by tarragon sauce, and prime Orkney fillet steak comes on black pudding with red wine and port sauce; there are also crabs and lobsters in season. To finish try the Orkney ice creams or traditional clootie dumpling with custard.
More casual lunches and snacks are served in the bar, when the menu runs from battered Orkney haddock and chips to lamb shank and chicken curry, with homemade cheesecake to finish.
