Food with a view!

A lovely place to visit and the restaurant sits on the loch side at Tweedbank near Galashiels. You can watch the swans and ducks while you enjoy your food. Mid morning coffee with scones or cake is delicious and lunch is either a light bite or something more from the main menu. There are several... read more

Never been disappointed. The food is always freshly cooked with varied menu. Staff and owners make you welcome and are anxious to help. Very nice views from the restaurant but best of all tasty well cooked food

Having been several times before I was somewhat surprised & disappointed at the portion of venison presented to me on Saturday night. It was quite literally no more than 3-4 oz in weight. Apparently this was a normal sized portion as supplied by their supplier. Suggestion - change your supplier. Come on guys I know you are better than this.

Once I came with a large group for my birthday and the restraunt allowed my friends to decorate the table with banners and balloons etc which was a nice touch. The owners Sandy & Karen are lovley people and are doing a fantastic job with... More

Visited this lovely place recently for mid morning coffee and cake (but have had food before) and this place is lovely. The view is really nice overlooking the duck pond and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The service is pleasant but efficient. The food really is fabulous, the cake I had was beautiful and all in my party were very... More

We have visited Herges on the Loch on a few occasions, never been disappointed. This restaurant has fantastic location and amazing view. Really nice interior. Perfect for romantic dinner but the place is also children friendly. Staff always nice and professional. Food is tasty and simple. Sticky toffee pudding is absolutely amazing!

Fabulous location, overlooking the loch at Tweedbank, where you can watch the swans and ducks while you eat lunch in the spacious and light restaurant. Friendly staff, and the food is excellent. One of our favourite places in Galashiels. And on a nice day you can sit outside in the sun.

We had a lovely meal when visiting the local area. It's in a lovely location and if you are lucky enough to get a seat overlooking the loch you can watch the ducks and swans. Their pizzas are great and if you can't finish them you are offered a takeaway box. Fantastic pavlova and sticky toffee pudding too. Friendly efficient... More

This is a lovely restaurant and the food is excellent. It is built on the edge of the lake, which has many birds swimming on the water. Take some bread with you to feed the birds and swans, after your meal. The walk around the lake takes about 15 minutes. Helpful staff and I recommend you try this restaurant
