Georgina Pellant Georgina Pellant - 18th March 2022

Mother’s Day is nearly upon us, meaning it’s time to start getting your ducks in a row if you haven’t already.

Organising cards, presents and table reservations are just a handful of ways of showing we care, but really there’s nothing better than just spending a bit of quality time with your mum to let her know how much you love and appreciate her.

As we hurtle ahead towards April, with things only set to get more expensive, Manchester’s restaurants are doing us a solid by laying on various free meals, drinks and gifts for the special ladies in our lives to give us a helping hand. Goodness knows we need it.

From bottomless mimosas and endless Yorkshire puddings to Molton Brown goodie bags and complimentary glasses of fizz, keep reading to find out who’s giving away what this Mother’s Day.

Peter Street Kitchen

This lauded contemporary Japanese and Mexican fusion kitchen on Peter Street is offering all mums a complimentary glass of fizz when they come to dine on Mothering Sunday.


Fine wines, Japanese whiskeys and signature cocktails abound on the bar, whilst on the menu, you’ll find a selection of exciting, modern small plates that combine the best of two, very different, cuisines.

All served within the stunning settings of the five-star Radisson Blu hotel, if you love a spot of people watching make sure to request to sit in the stone alcoves facing onto Peter Street.

Bottomless mimosas are only available in the first hour of the table booking for mums only. You must book online in advance, quoting how many mums are attending:
