Herbert Arthur Robert Hervey, 5th Marquess of Bristol (10 October 1870 – 5 April 1960), styled Lord Herbert Hervey from 1907 to 1951, was a British peer. He succeeded his brother Frederick William Fane Hervey, 4th Marquess of Bristol in 1951.

The 5th Marquess was the fifth son of Lord Augustus Henry Charles Hervey (1837–1875), MP for West Suffolk, and Mariana, née Hodnett (died 30 January 1920). Lord Augustus Hervey was the younger brother of Frederick William John Hervey, 3rd Marquess of Bristol, and the younger son of Frederick William Hervey, 2nd Marquess of Bristol.

Hervey was educated at Clifton College. He married twice:

  1. 19 October 1914 (divorced 1933), Lady Jean Alice Elaine Cochrane (d. 5 January 1955), daughter of the 12th Earl of Dundonald, and had one son, Victor Frederick Cochrane Hervey, 6th Marquess of Bristol.
  2. 15 December 1952, Dora Frances (died 27 March 1953), only daughter of George Marshall, and widow of Don Pedro de Zulueta.

In 1892 Hervey joined H.M. Diplomatic Service, becoming Consul in Chile in 1892 for three years. For a year he served as chargé d'affaires at Montevideo and Guatemala, and was Consul in Abyssinia from 1907 to 1909. He was listed as a Commercial attaché in 1913, but elevated to the status of Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary, to Colombia in 1919-1923 and Peru and Ecuador in 1923-1928, retiring in 1929.

He was awarded the Grand Cross of the Order of the Sun by the Peruvian government.
