If you're planning to treat her, there are plenty of places in the local area to help you celebrate. And what better way to show her how much you love her than taking her out for a delicious meal or a pamper?
There are some gorgeous restaurants and hotels offering set menus, special deals or champagne on Sunday to give your mum a day to remember…
Bears Bar and Grill (www.bearsbarandgrill.co.uk)
Whether you choose to go to this restaurant on Mothering Sunday or maybe the Saturday or Friday to avoid the crowds, you won’t be disappointed. With an impressive grill menu including a Sunday dinner, which embodies all the comfort and warmth of British food, and desserts for the ultimate treat, there’s also an expansive drinks menu, and something to suit every need and taste.
The View Hotel (https://www.theviewhoteleastbourne.com/)
If you’re planning lunch and want incredible seaside views, you can’t beat The View. As the name suggests, you can enjoy wonderful food and a glass of champagne while looking out at an expanse of stunning panoramic sea views.
The Grand (https://www.grandeastbourne.com/)
The Grand offers afternoon tea and fine dining at an award-winning restaurant to make your mum feel like a queen. If you’re planning on a pamper day, you can do it all here, with indoor and outdoor heated pool, comprehensive hair and beauty therapy facilities, a sauna, and a supervised (OFSTED inspected) children's playroom for the little ones so mum can relax!
Fizz on foot (https://fizzonfoot.com/)
For the mum who deserves a toast, Fizz on Foot is a truly unique experience offering the chance to explore breath-taking walking routes whilst learning more about Sussex’s award-winning wine! Join a tour through stunning local routes, visit flourishing vineyards and sample English sparkling and white wine produced at Rathfinny Estate. Exclusively on offer for Mother's Day, you can also pick up a hamper of champagne and chocolates for just £45!
Dickens Tea Cottage (https://www.facebook.com/Dickens-Tea-Cottage-Eastbourne-247588225280192/)
For something a little different, and for the literacy loving mums out there, go to Dickens Tea Cottage, a cosy little place tucked away on South Street. Built in 1719, it’s been a Tea Room for over 50 years and Dickens himself was supposed to have visited it when it was a boarding house. The feeling is very old fashioned and friendly, and the scones are beautiful!
Whether you're looking to spoil your mum or know of a mum who is in need of a pamper on Mother's Day, we hope this list will spark some ideas. Let us know if you pay a visit any of the above, and whether mum loved it – we love to hear we made a difference!
