Tonight I chose the Scallops followed by Lamb and finished of with a Belgian Chocolate Mousse that I'd challenge anyone, not to... More

Had dinner here between Christmas and New Year with husband and son- no cooking, what a treat!!! Enjoyed our meal very much and the atmosphere was great. Soft lighting, cosy surroundings, great views of the loch. The staff are lovely, appropriately attentive and friendly. could have just tucked ourselves in for the night. Thanks

Having read these reviews and finding most of them positive we booked lunch for three, me, my wife and my sister. Nice surroundings , staff real friendly and attentive. My wife had the steak and ale pie, whilst my sister and I had the Christmas lunch. We all found the food was only barely passable and could probably have had... More

Unlike the emperor, we would have appreciated the chance to have made your dinner with us more to your liking! Overcooked vegetables are definitely not our chef's signature and I wonder if you simply did not have any Christmas spirit present with you. All our staff, both front and kitchen, worked so hard over this time to prepare and serve... More

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
