Hi Gordon, I'm glad you enjoyed your family meal at Herges. I am concerned that your overall rating of our establishment only merits one star? This impinges on our position in Tripadviser. If this is in error, can you correct it, if it is not, then I apologise if we did not meet your expectations. More

Great for lunch and you might be fortunate to get a table overlooking the loch. Either way the food will not disappoint. Sweets are not for those on a diet but scrummy.

Sorry that you felt rushed over desserts, but our staff had identified that you were not pleased that the lite bite menu was not on offer on a Sunday and were simply trying to be attentive. Our Chef prepares a Sunday Roast which many people truly enjoy and baked potatoes are never on our menu. Any other day, we can... More

We had a lovely meal served by very professional staff in modern bright surroundings. The white " bake off " roll served with the soup did rather let down the wonderful meal! I would definitely return.

Herge's is located a comfortable walk from Tweedbank Station so is handy if you're popping down on the train. Nice outlook over Gunknowe Loch, especially on the lower level seating. Good choice of food, from light bites, to main meals, pizzas etc. Difficult not to find something that suits. I had the haddock and chips which was very nice. Staff... More
