We visited yesterday for lunch and asked the lovely waitress to recommend a light course to myself, ordered the Crayfish, smoked salmon Caesar salad and side of chips...mouthful after mouthful of deliciousness! Beautiful relaxed setting sitting by the loch...lovely!

Came across the Herges completely by accident today so my wife and I popped in for lunch. As my title said what a pleasant surprise to find such a lovely restaurant that we did not know about. The restaurant is a nice modern building with...More

Decided at last minute to come here for dinner, wasn't disappointed, absolutely lovely yet again. Haggis parcels for starters then fettuccine carbonara for main, piping hot and good sized portion. Excellent service from all the staff and it's also lovely to watch the swans and...More

We had lunch, fish and chips and fettucine. It says on the table that food is freshly cooked so may take 20-30 minutes, it does and they don't provide bread. The batter on the fish was uncooked and raw inside. The chips were fine but...More

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.
