To make your mum’s day all the more special, why not elevate things a little? We think a good ol’ bit of fine dining should do the trick. Food is the universal symbol of love, right?! Or even better, get them out to the country for a cottage holiday with Snaptrip and culinary adventure in one fail swoop! Here’s a selection of some of the best restaurants outside of London, so you can spoil your mum rotten this Mother’s Day!
Gidleigh Park, Chagford, Devon
The award-winning two Michelin star restaurant, Gidleigh Park, is owned by celebrity chef Michael Caines and led under the culinary eye of executive chef Michael Wignall, who has won Michelin stars in every kitchen he has headed since being awarded his first star in 1993. They have an amazing afternoon tea menu, with fresh cut sandwiches, plain and fruit scones, homemade cakes and pastries, plus a choice of tea. It’s £38 each for a traditional afternoon tea, or £50 for the upgraded champagne afternoon tea (go on, splash out!)
L’Enclume, Lake District
L’Enclume is one of most decorated restaurants in the Lake District, and so confident that you will enjoy their food, they don’t even feel the need to offer a menu! Simon Rogen’s iconic riverside restaurant, it’s the perfect setting to enjoy a decadent Sunday lunch. “These are the finest ingredients that will not wait, minute by minute imposing themselves to our stock. What this creates is a series of dishes for each individual table that will not necessarily be the same but will share the same ethos.” Sounds good eh? Set Lunch is £45 per person.
The Sportsman, Whitstable, Kent
The Sportsman in Whitsable has held a Michelin star since 2008 and is the place to go for exquisite seafood. From Whitstable Native Oysters to Poached Rock Oysters, smoked mackerel to sole grilled in seaweed butter, they’ve got the best of the best. Whitstable is one of the UK’s most beautiful seaside towns – and just a short drive from London – making it the perfect destination for a short Mother’s Day break!
