Visited a couple of times whilst on holiday in Borders. Herges has a lovely setting beside a small loch complete with water feature and much bird-life, nice for a stroll too. We got a nice welcome on arrival, the place is clean and well ordered. We enjoyed good coffee and some of the freshest cakes I've tasted in a long... More

I reviewed Herges a couple of months ago and it was excellent but today it was awful, what's happened? No owners at front of house and I don't know if it was a regular chef but the food was poor to say the least. Fish and chips, all chips and half a fish which was all batter. Roast Beef salad...

I am genuinely sorry that you had these problems and miscommunication when in for lunch last Monday. Our burgers are made with some onion for flavour and I don't understand why you were not informed of this. My staff are generally fully attentive and good at explaining this. I hope that you accept our apologies and understand that since we... More

What a super venue. Wonderful staff and the reason you go to a restaurant, the food. Absolutely stunning, I have to recommend the Burger with blue cheese, one of my favourites but the crispy chips that complement it. Fantastic. Cannot commend this restaurant and the owners Sandy and Karen enough. Wonderful, looking forward to my next visit.

Stopped by one lunch time for coffee and cake whilst out cycling. The lunch time food being served looked tempting so promised ourselves an evening meal at a later date. So glad we did. We had the lamb and pork dishes washed down with a wheat beer. Desert was pavlova and a cheese board. All food was freshly prepared and... More

Consistently tasty food, they have a light lunch as well as more gastro pub options - some really nicely put together dishes. Nice location overlooking loch.
