If you fancy taking your mum somewhere different for Mother’s Day in Manchester this year, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite spots for you to try. From a cosy booth under Spinningfields to the city’s most flamboyant food destinations, we’ve curated a list of Manchester’s best food and drink hot spots we think she’ll adore. PS – don’t forget, it’s March 22nd.
Pick somewhere pretty this mother’s day, like Australasia.
This Mother’s Day at Australasia, in addition to their exquisite a la carte menu, there will be treats from Molton Brown, who will be offering a complimentary goodie bag to all `Mums` and also a luxury hand massage for those dining in the restaurant between 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm.
Miles away from anything else in Manchester, Australasia is a perfect antidote to stuffy fine dining attitudes. Modern Australian cuisine combines Pacific Rim flavours with strong European foundations, and also includes a blend of Indonesian and Southeast Asian influences. Intriguing from the outside and beautiful within, the bespoke glass entrance on The Avenue, Spinningfields, certainly catches the eye, sweeping guests downstairs to the irresistible charms of the restaurant’s amazing cuisine and relaxed ambience.
Tables can be booked via the website on australasia.uk.com/ or by telephone: 01618310288.
Escape, to Sunset by Australasia
Sunset by Australasia, Manchester’s favourite `beach bar`, gives the feel of a Pacific paradise in the heart of Spinningfields. Located above Australasia and boasting a beautiful heated terrace with retractable roof and an exquisite sunshine-infused interior, Sunset is sure to transport you to faraway shores, and relaxing over their elegant Afternoon Tea is the perfect treat.
Priced £30 per person, this includes a welcome Mimosa and also a Mother’s Day make-up masterclass and goodie bag from the talented team at Pat McGrath Selfridges.
Tickets can be booked via the website: sunset.uk.com/ or Telephone: 01618310288
