Went in at lunch time and was really surprised at how busy it was, we were seated at the large window overlooking the loch, which was absolutely beautiful, we ordered the panini which I must say was the best I've had in a while. Although busy, service was first class and we didn't wait long for our food. Staff are... More

We went to Herges on the Loch as it's idyllically situated, and I'd already been before and enjoyed my experience. As we had a large family group, and we'd asked if we could be sat somewhere a little more private, the owners wer more than happy to accommodate us. The service was great, the food wonderful and their choice is... More

Just down the road from the new Tweedbank railway station Herge’s on the Loch is conveniently located for those taking their kids to see the ducks on the aforesaid loch. The loch is nicely kept and maintains a good quantity of ducks and swans. These are of course incredibly interesting to a small child who can literally spend hours just... More

Nice location just outside Galashiels - and great location for new train links to Edinburgh in Sept. Kitchen makes an effort to keep menu interesting with good use of local produce - all very well done. Loved the venison and nice wine list also. Worth making a regular stopping place.
