It’s that time of year again… Mother’s Day is just round the corner (and yes, it’s snuck up on us too). Luckily, Newcastle’s never short of stunning eateries, bars, and experiences — so there’s sure to be something in there to suit that special lady in your life.
So why not show your mum just how special she is? Here’s our top 5 mum-friendly ideas for how to celebrate this Mother’s Day.
We don’t know about you, but nothing makes us feel like celebrating than getting all dressed up and heading out for a fancy dinner, drinks, or even just a cosy Sunday roast. Whatever your mum’s favourite cuisine, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our favourites for good scran, lush cocktails, and a banging afternoon tea this Mother’s Day.
Picture this: pizza, pasta and… pornstar martinis? At Neville Street’s Central Shaker, you can have it all with their mix of mouth-watering Italian dishes and expertly mixed cocktails.
For those mums looking to truly indulge, we recommend the Cheese Fondue pizza (trust us, it’s as decadent as it sounds), washed down with Central’s Peardrop Punch, a vodka cocktail featuring pear puree, apple juice, and a raspberry sugar sprinkle. If you’re looking to shake things up this Mother’s Day, definitely give Central Oven and Shaker a try.
A cheese and sugar coma? Count us (and our mums) in. You can find out more about Central Shaker and book a table via their website.
If you’re feeling faaancy this Mother’s Day, grab your mum and head to the famous Jesmond Dene House for their Mother’s Day afternoon tea. Held in the stunning Great Hall on Sunday 19th March, this is definitely a luxury experience your mum won’t want to miss.
Expect to be served a delectable selection of scones, cakes, sandwiches, and savoury treats, all to a backdrop of amazing live music. Highlights include their Earl Grey and Raisin scone, Roasted Red Pepper and Basil Tart and, of course, the classic Victoria Sponge. Did we mention you get a glass of fizz too?
Don’t miss out — this afternoon tea requires pre-booking and is sure to fill up fast. You can find out more and snap up your table on Jesmond Dene’s website.
Four words. Three. Meat. Sunday. Roast. Need we say more?
Award-winning Pleased to Meet You — based at 41-45 High Bridge — are already well-known for their delicious culinary offerings and hand-crafted cocktails, but did you know they offer a Sunday Roast too? If you’ve got a mum who’s a stickler for comfort food, this is sure to put a smile on her face.
Don’t forget to try out their Bloody Marys — we’ve heard they’re not to be missed, AND they’re on offer every Sunday.
