Perfect for Treating Mum

Inspire Me

A memorable Mother’s Day

It’s that time in March when all thoughts turn to treating your mum. What are you planning?

What beats a last-minute set of smellies from Boots? Whether it’s a chance to get the family together, or some quality time for you and your mum, we’ve spoken to some our tenants for a bit of inspiration. From gift ideas or a tasty meal out; an activity with a difference or an end-of-day cocktail, it’s time to let your mum know just how much she means to you…

Try something new at Rosa’s Thai Cafe

Rosa’s Thai has only just opened its doors at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool – its first restaurant outside London – so if you’re looking for something new and exotic, this is the place… Serving a mouth-watering array of authentic Thai dishes and exotic cocktails, Rosa’s Thai is a relaxed, fun dining destination – and its open theatre kitchen only adds to a memorable experience.


A Balearic banquet? Treat your mum to a sumptuous Spanish feast at Lunyalita...

Lunyalita proved a smash hit when it opened last summer, and we’re sure the Mother’s Day menu will serve up some new Spanish specialties. Every mum who dines on Mother’s Day will be treated to a lovely free gift and you can choose from Lunyalita’s Bubbly Breakfast, regular à la carte menu, or a special Mother’s Day tapas banquet. The banquet includes a glass of Cava sangria on arrival for all mothers, mixed olives, a Spanish cheese platter, Catalan tomato bread, tortilla, Padrón peppers, calamari in beer batter, albóndigas (Spanish meatballs), pollo al romesco (chicken in a tasty almond sauce), patatas bravas and a dessert sharing platter including chocolate and churros, Tarta de Santiago and chocolates/ turron. Not to be missed!


Or a luxurious lunch at Panam?

Panam’s pulling out all the stops with a fabulous Mother’s Day set menu. Head over to its luxurious bar and make the most of panoramic views of the iconic waterfront, then get settled at an intimate dining table for a very special meal. Choose two courses for £17.95, or three courses for £22.95, from a menu packed with American-inspired dishes – alongside a few home favourites. Take your pick from everything from seafood terrine to slow-roasted shank of Welsh lamb, or flavoursome vegetarian nut wellington. Deliciously indulgent desserts include rich homemade cheesecake or the Panam Mess with meringue pieces, winter berries, marshmallows and whipped cream.

Once you’ve taken your time over a lovely lunch, we have a feeling a bit of activity might be in order… soak up the World Heritage waterfront while you’re down at the Dock and – for something truly different – how does an adventure at Escape Hunt sound?

Lock your mum up with her nearest and dearest at Escape Hunt

What could be more thoughtful than locking your mum in a room with her favourite people for Mother’s Day? Escape Hunt has packaged its five star family fun with a Mother’s Day card and free drink for your mum, if you buy her an Escape Hunt voucher for Mother’s Day. Give her a gift with a difference when you pair an adrenalin-packed hour solving clues and unlocking the secrets that will release you from the escape room with this free drink package. It’s got all the makings of an unforgettable Mother’s Day.


Round off your day with a cocktail...

And, relax. There’s only really one way to round off the day, and we think it includes the word ‘cocktail’... Gusto is home to an elegant, cosy bar overlooking the Dock, with a signature cocktail list that’s worth spending some quality time with. Pick from their signature cocktail collection, including a rhubarb sour or strawberry and kiwi sling; head for the well-stocked gin list, or – for the ultimate Mother’s Day indulgence, treat your mum to a bottle of bubbles.

If you listen carefully, you might just hear Revolucion de Cuba’s Sunday Sessions calling. All cocktails are two-for-one on Sunday afternoons between 5pm and 7pm (as is Mahou lager). What a way to end the day…

Mother’s Day falls on Sunday March 31 this year, so start your planning now to give your mum a day to remember.
