“Attentive lunchtime service and good selection”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Just been here once with a friend for lunch. As you need at lunchtime, the service is prompt without rushing you, and there is a good selection of snacks and 'proper' meals.

“Expensive”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Two adults and a 5 yr old out for lunch, we didn't have alcholic drinks, no starters or pudding and it cost us nearly £50.00. Food edibal but nothing special and not worth the money.
Beautiful location, the children's park is close by and saved the day for us.

I'm sorry that you found our meal an expensive day out. From what you say that you had to eat on our menu, please look again at your reciept in case there has been a mistake made on our part.
Most main courses are around the £12 mark and children's meals under £4, so please check and get back to us if indeed you have been overcharged.

“Very nice food”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Visited with work colleagues as had heard pretty good reports about Herge's.

Nice outlook over the little loch at Twwedbank. Was very quiet for a Thursday but we had booked anyway.

Fairly varied choice of menu with local produce included. Food is really nice, well prepared and presented.

Prices are very reasonable for the quality. Staff pleasant and efficient. Would go back
