    EatScotland Says:

    An exciting new venue, Herges on the Loch near Galashiels offers outstanding food in a restaurant where you can watch the swans on the loch.

    Duckling confit terrine, marinated sultanas, toasted brioche with fig chutney: "A good combination of flavours with the chutney and orange adding both a sweet and sharp contrast to the duck." "An excellently produced first course."

    Chargrilled sirloin steak with hand cut cajun wedges: "Sirloin steak served on top of laid out wedges, with a clolourful vegetable selection to the side." "A good quality piece of lean meat with little gristle or fat."

    Border tart, vanilla pod ice cream with fresh egg custard: "A well made, crisp pastry tartlet filled with walnuts and raisins in a syrup franzipan. There was a distinct vanilla taste to the creamy ice cream, accompanied by a rich custard."
