Revised this annual get together in 2015 so thought it would be good to share again. Visit on Friday 30 December 2016. 3 couples / 5 starters - 6 mains and 3 desserts. The food was amazing and there were 5 different choices between the 6 mains. Reason there were only 3 desserts is because half of us were full... More

Went with friends to Herges for the first time, it was New Years Eve 2016 and we managed to get a table. Nice layout with plenty of atmoshere but oh what a fantastic menu. Good selection of a good range of dishes, not many places have four different types of fish prepared four very different ways and the other dishes... More

We were booked for a meal and bring in the New Year. Meal was reasonable. However at 10.30pm we were asked to leave as it wasnt worth their while to stay open. Even though there were at least 20 people sitting drinking. So sadly we had to leave. Couldnt get in anywhere else to bring in the New Year. So... More

I am genuinely sorry for your disappointment and cutting short your night out. There was no party atmosphere and if you had seen the joy on the faces of my staff when they were allowed to return to their family and friends to bring in the new year, you might be able to understand the decision. Sorry again. More

Normally when we come here it's great, I've always enjoyed the food and service has been good. Oh dear I hate to write this but visited the other day and ordered what I have had twice before maybe I should of gone for something different but as I have always enjoyed the twice cooked belly pork I went for that...

Visited for coffee and something to eat. Chose Americano with hot milk and a cheese scone. Coffee was lukewarm and scone had very strange unappetising texture, almost certainly not fresh baked that morning. Seats were comfy but stuck in a corner with no view of the loch.

Nice setting and a pleasant enough restaurant. However the small panini arrived without the crisps as described on the menu and a small amount of salad. It certainly didn't justify the cost of over £6. It seems to be the only place to eat or get a drink in Tweedbank and having this monopoly probably means over inflated prices. Service... More

Had a lovely night out when staying at Abbotsford House. Staff all very friendly and attentive. Good variety on the menu which was a wee bit different. All food very tasty and well presented. Nice cosy ambience, looking out on the loch. Made our booking online. Would definitely recommend.

Jill and I visited again on her birthday. Once again we were made welcome by attentive staff who allowed us plenty time to choose from the varied menu. Really got to say that everything presented was first class. Jill had whale and chips and I had the pork belly. Chef that Sandy has is skilled and sends out attractive plates... More
