The heading is purely due to the coincidence of the unfortunate ex-premier of Catalonia being compared to Tintin in some blog I happened to see on the day I dined here. I am not a fan of Tintin so the restaurant theme had no resonance...More

Glad you weren't put off by our loose play on the author, Herge. Thanks for telling us and praising our staff attentiveness. I will pass this on and give them a star! Hope your next visit is soon.

What's not to like? Named after the creator of Tintin, by the Loch in this Scandinavian feeling modern town at the heart of The Borders. We shared a wonderful goats cheese mousse with pears and raisins and all sorts, and the fine pink meat dishes...More

We really enjoyed the simple food at Herge's (Named after Tin Tin's creator). Really pleasant staff. Tables with a view of the lake. Much better value than most Melrose restaurants. And YES, they do take credit cards despite a previous review.

Herges is a superb place to watch the wildlife outside on the water. The ambience is magical, the food delightful and the staff friendly and helpful.
