Excellent food

Had a lovely meal here for Father's Day. Staff were very pleasant and location is lovely as it's situated right next to a loch which is very tranquil to sit and watch the swans and ducks float by. The best thing about this restaurant is the food, it was excellent and worth the money. This was our... read more

We were there for my Dad's birthday and had no complaints, the food was excellent, the staff were great....will certainly be back. I had the pizza for a main and this was really nice, others in the group had pork belly and lamb and both were extremely satisfied.

Soon to move into the area my wife and I were looking for a decent restaurant close to our new house and found this gem. Modern decor with a great view over the "loch". The staff were very attentive without being intrusive during the meal and made us feel very welcome. The menu is made up of local produce but... More

Our niece organised a surprise 40th anniversary dinner for her Mum and Dad at Herges on the Loch and what a great night we had. Not only was the food beautiful but the atmosphere was perfect. We were seated downstairs from the main diners so it made it more like a private party. The service was first class and the... More

It was busy but we got a window seat in the end which looked out to the loch. Beatiful view, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Tasty food!

Booked a meal here for a 30th birthday and the service was very accommodating - the chef prepared a special vegan meal for me and I asked if they could make a meringue cake for the group to which they created an amazing tower of meringue, cream and fresh summer fruits. Everyone enjoyed their main courses - it was a... More

It's sort of a pub / restaurant in an unusual setting just outside Melrose in a housing estate, Not a Loch for me, more of a park pond but we sat outside and it was lovely with the tinkling of the fountain. Two attentive and polite waitresses, nice menu and children friendly. I had a ham and Mull cheddar panini,... More
