Had a really tasty lunch here. Two courses from the daily menu and shared a sweet from the a la carte menu. Mellow atmosphere and laid back, friendly service (and the most comfortable restaurant chair ever!) Would definitely recommend.

You can walk from the Balmoral within 10 minutes. It's mainly a flat route. Depends how fit your parents are.
