We had been out for the day to visit the many attractions in and around Melrose when we took a wrong turn into Tweedbank - which at first glance seemed to be a vast new town full of council houses - when we came across a man made loch called Gunknowe Loch. There at the head of the loch were... More

"Scottish Tapas" is an interesting idea, and was a very tasty dish. The lamb dish I had was a nice piece of meat but overall wasn't seasoned properly - and the presentation was terrible (put the sauce/jus in a small jug perhaps?). Other dishes at our table looked good. Think about training all of your staff properly - for example,... More

The Scottish tapas and the escalopes got the meal off to a brilliant start, then 4 different main courses all excellent followed by sweets that were obviously home made and delicious. One of the best meals we have had in many years of travelling around. We will return.

When asked how was the meal we said that the beef salad was very poor. The sad thing was that the only retort was to say sorry. Paid, and no mention of the encounter. Sad, no care for the customer. We ought to have left the meal, but my wife was hungry and tied after the driving on a hot... More

I'm sorry again. Our staff and myself do care about all our customer's experience. The "Small Summer Salad" that your wife choose, is what it says and is shaved roast beef, boiled egg, tomatoes, peppers, red onions, cos lettuce and rocket with Caesar Dressing. Perhaps you should have chosen our Steak Pie, which would fill all the spaces.! More

I stopped off here a few months ago with a few friends. Terrific service, made to feel very welcome, as if we were family. The meal itself was something to remember. Will definitely be back.

The quality and presentation of the food, the excellent service from Kirsty made it a most enjoyable dining experience. We are well travelled and were surprised in a totally positive way by the whole experience. The first impression of the exterior on... More

It is always a pleasant surprise to come upon Herges in this residential area - the setting beside a small loch is perfect and the view from your table is of Border tree and hill. The service is really friendly and the meal is as good as you'll find in the area and better than most.
