On the hunt for Mother’s Day inspiration ahead of this weekend? We’ve picked out a few of the places pulling out the stops to help celebrate the mums of Manchester…

Free Prosecco and cupcakes at Zouk

Any mums dining at Zouk on Sun 27 Mar will be treated to a free glass of Prosecco or Shloer with their meal, along with a delicious cupcake box to take home for later.

Along with that, guests will have the option to choose between Zouk’s signature mouthwatering Indian classics, or indulge in the restaurant’s unique take on the traditional Sunday roast.

Coming in sharing platter form, complete with three roasted meats—leg of lamb, beef topside and chicken—each serving comes with all the trimmings you could possibly need‚ Yorkshires, golden roasties, seasonal veg and Zouk’s famous spicy gravy, it’s all there.

Embankment Kitchen's 'I Got It From My Mama' menu

Over in the chic surroundings of Embankment West, Head Chef Marika Healey has crafted a special Mother’s Day three-course set menu.

Diners can choose from hearty mains that include a Chargrilled 5oz Rump Steak, Oven-baked Cod Fillet or Pan-roasted Corn-fed Chicken, along with a sumptuous veggie option in the Roast Vegetable and Vegan Cheese Wellington.

Decadent desserts close things out—the crowd-pleasing Sticky Toffee Pudding, White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake or for those after something slightly lighter, the Coconut and Mango Panna Cotta. For an extra treat, use the code MCRWIRE in the special request section when booking and mum will get a free glass of Prosecco on arrival.
