Today I took my sister to Herges for a birthday treat lunch. It had been recommended by a Tesco check out lady in Peebles and we were so glad of her recommendation. It is situated in a lovely spot and we were charmed to be shown to a table overlooking the lake. We are both self-confessed foodies and the menu... More

Over priced picture on a plate. Not impressed at all. The only good thing about this place is the view over the loch and that is what you are paying for, more enjoyment having a picnic outside taking in the same view.

I'm very surprised at your comments! I know we can't please all of the people all of the time, but I feel your condemnation is unjustified. Did you speak to any of our staff at the time? What did you order? It's good to get feedback so that you can rectify any problems, but I feel that you just don't... More

Went with my husband for an evening meal recently and must say we were most impressed by the quality of food and very friendly owners'. A really good choice of menu although I'm not keen on fish but my husband had the Salmon with Mussels and it was lovely. When looking around the restaurant all we could see was very... More

You do get nice food here but it is expensive as its a closed shop and you have to go into Melrose or Gala for a beer

I'm glad you enjoyed your meal and were made welcome by our excellent staff. Our beers are extremely well priced for a restaurant, so I was surprised at your comments! £3.10 for a pint of Best is very competitive. Still baffled! More

Booked for birthday dinner and what a great choice! We had been here before quite a while ago and thought it was good but this time was great. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was lovely and the service was just right. Only slight criticism is that the starters were a bit pricey in comparison to an otherwise acceptably priced...

Had a family get together 6 of us ....it was a last minute decision to come her but we weren't sorry. All the meals were very well presented and in my opinion beautifully cooked and the portions were enough if you also wanted a starter or a pudding. The prices are ok for what you get ...which is good food... More
