Musement takes a look at five restaurants where you can celebrate Mother’s Day in London on March 22.
Every day should be Mother’s Day. That is to say, we should love and cherish our precious life-givers constantly throughout the year. Nevertheless, it is nice to dedicate a specific day to honouring our mothers as it gives us an excuse to splash out on something extravagant–because hey it’s only once a year! And, this year, that special day falls on Sunday, 22 March in London, and in the entire UK for that matter.
If you’re spending Mother’s Day in London, treat the matriarch in your live to an evening she truly deserves. Leave no stone unturned as you search for the perfect itinerary to dazzle her and make her feel like all those years of laundry and packed lunches were worth it. If you need a bit of inspiration, here are some of the best restaurants in London to spoil your mother this Mothering Sunday.
As a side note – remember, just because it’s Sunday doesn’t mean you have to eat a roast. There will be plenty of delicious options available across the city in all different formats. Of course, if you do want a roast then there are a plethora of roast-providers to choose from. Just make sure, wherever you go, you book well in advance as restaurants book up early for Mother’s Day.
