Restaurant quality food at home

Our Mother's Day Menu for 2023 is a showcase of British, seasonal ingredients, pairing fragrant herbs, rich flavour and the very best of British free-range and grass-fed meat sourced from our small network of farmers and suppliers. Expect vibrant and zesty notes that complement the natural flavour of your chosen centrepiece, like our lamb leg butterfly with za'atar, orange and olive oil, the perfect quick roast for Easter Sunday. Carved skilfully by our Master Butcher, this versatile cut is perfect for pairing with couscous and salad or charred spring greens and roast potatoes.

If a cut of lamb isn't for you, try our exclusive Mother's Day cinnamon and golden raisin stuffed chicken crown, pairing everything that is delicious about hot cross buns with our succulent free-range chicken. Our Michelin-starred chef Jeff Baker has developed a hot cross bun stuffing, made up of free-range pork sausage meat, a sweetened bread crumb, golden raisin, fine citrus peel and a mixed spice, to complement the natural flavour of our chicken. This is an easy roasting centrepiece that is sure to impress Mum.

How Mother's Day is celebrated across the world

In every country, Mother's Day is a day to celebrate the motherly figure in our lives, but did you know different countries have different traditions, festivals and weeklong celebrations too? In Peru, Mother's Day is known as Feliz Dia Mama and actually lasts for a whole week, celebrations of gift giving, family get togethers and large feasts - this is one of the most important celebrations in the Peruvian calendar.

In Thailand, the national holiday lands on 12th August, which also happens to be the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, the Queen Mother. Ceremonies are held all day, with children performing in schools, each child kneels at their mothers feet to show respect and gratitude for everything she has done. Jasmine is usually given as a symbol of traditional, purity and grace.

In the UK, our traditions are a little more low key, showing love and respect for our loved ones usually through spending time together, gift giving and a traditional Sunday Roast.
