Our Mother's Day dining guide – London restaurants that are as special as she is!


If you haven’t made plans for Mother’s Day, now is the time to finalise your choices and get that winning table booked. We know that all mothers are different, so we’ve put together some ideas to help you plan a special meal that will mean as much to her as she does to you.

For mums who love… brunch

Get Mother’s Day off to a great start with brunch at foodie favourites like The Riding House Café, Kopapa, and Plum & Spilt Milk. The Mother’s Day brunch at Sixtyone is a steal at £28 for 3 courses and in the City, 3 South Place’s offer includes bottomless brunch cocktails like Bellinis and Mimosas!

For mums who love… to travel

Treat well-travelled, adventurous mums to a taste of Peru at Coya, tapas at Iberica, or a modern Indian feast at Trishna or Roti Chai. If she prefers Oriental flavours, head for the West End and try dim sum and cocktails at Hakkasan or a spicy Sichuan meal at Barshu.

For mums who love… celeb chefs

Treat your mum to a special Mother’s Day lunch at Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street Café, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, or Angela Hartnett’s Café Murano. If you’re looking for something that hungry brothers and dads will enjoy, try the legendary chicken and steaks at Mark Hix’s Tramshed or contemporary curries at Atul Kochhar’s Benares.

Lunch at The Mall Tavern, Notting Hill.

For mums who love… a proper Sunday roast

For traditionalists who fancy a Sunday roast without the washing up, there are plenty to choose from on our Best for Sunday Lunch list. Relax with the family at neighbourhood gastropubs like The Stag in Hampstead, Juniper Dining in Highbury, and The Mall Tavern in Notting Hill.

For mums who love… tea for two

Check out our top picks for afternoon tea, from elegant hotel tearooms like Palm Court and The Lobby Lounge to lesser known gems like Mari Vanna and Gallery Mess.

For mums who love… Champagne

Celebrate in style with a Champagne and salmon breakfast at St Pancras Grand or pair fizz with artisan cheeses at Androuet or Champagne & Fromage. If you’re spending the day shopping, refuel with a Champagne lunch at Searcy’s bars at Westfield, One New Change and Westfield Stratford. Mums will receive complimentary Champagne at Inamo on the 30th and there is free Prosecco on offer at Valentina, The North London Tavern, and The Jones Family Project.
