Best for Sunday Roast: Hunter 486 at The Arch
Give something back to the most important woman in your life by treating her to a roast chicken feast for the whole family to share. Set in London’s Marble Arch, The Arch’s Hunter 486 restaurant will be offering a roast dinner, priced at £35 for two or £60 for four people.
The roast Norfolk Black free range chicken is amazingly succulent as it is cooked at a very high heat in the restaurant’s stone oven. The chicken is brought to the table whole and is served with roast garlic, roast potatoes, aioli, parsley and caper sauce and gravy.
Best for cocktails: Lancaster London
Your mum will love sipping the brilliantly-named Mummylicious cocktail, on offer at Lancaster London’s classy bar which overlooks Hyde Park. A zesty cocoction of fresh strawberry, lime, cranberry and vodka, the dreamy cocktail has been specially created with mothers in mind.
Feeling peckish? The hotel’s Island Grill restaurant is the perfect spot to enjoy a three-course Mother’s Day Day Sunday Roast.
Mums will be given a free glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne and a box of chocolates with their lunch which will be served from midday for just £25.
