Edinburgh Castle’s Mother’s Day Roast
Certainly one of the best roast dinners in the whole of Manchester, I’d even go so far as to say that this one is actually A LOT better than your mums – sacrilege in many households I know. Your poor mam can’t compete with this one – with a choice of Lamb Cutlet en Croute (£16), Beer-glazed Roast Chicken for 4 (£45), 21-Aged Beef Rib for 2 (£60) or Beetroot & Black Pudding Wellington (£13) – plus – all the trimmings of course!

Mother’s Day with Manchester Gin
It aint called “Mother’s Ruin” for nothing you know. Mams bloody love gin – I don’t know what it is – it’s as if they reach the menopause and that’s all they’re interested in drinking. That and Prosecco. That’s a vast over-generalisation I know but I’m positive your mum will love a bit of gin this year – and Manchester Gin have you covered with a range of gifts and bottles.

Give Your Mam some Flowers!
Mums love flowers – even if it’s just so that they can use that vase that they bought back in 1994. You can’t buy them from Tesco or the Shell Garage though – she’ll know – you’ve got to buy her something classy. Luckily there’s a bunch (see what I did there?) of independent florists knocking about, such as Northern Flower, Northern Lights, Frog, Glasshouse – so many in fact that there’s absolutely NO excuse for not getting some for her.

 

Mother’s Day by The Lowry Hotel
In the absence of being able to take your dear mum for a proper 5* experience down at The Lowry Hotel, you can instead treat her to a restaurant-quality experience in her very own house. You can opt to send her an Afternoon Tea with a bottle of Prosecco (£70) or take the stress away from her cooking and preparing the dinner that day with their Sunday Lunch (£50) package.
