How to spend Mother's Day in St James's
If she raised you right, you’ll take her to one of these places.


Have an indulgent afternoon. Take mum to tea and get a complimentary glass of champagne for 22.50. Or, try the Bubbly Brunch with fresh pastries, cakes, prosecco and all the brunch staples for £35. Come for the bubbles, stay for the flower arranging class with luxury florist Moyses Stevens

Enjoy a special seasonal menu featuring classic Venetian small plates. Think: chicken braised in almond milk with medjool dates and saffron, or charcoal-grilled pork rib-eye, occhiato bean puree with grilled courgettes and cremosa.

Paxton & Whitfield

If you can’t spend the afternoon with her, the next best thing is cheese. Paxton & Whitfield is offering a special selection in a heart-shaped beechwood box, containing delicacies like a Brie de Meaux, Finest English Stilton and accompanied by multiseed and cracked black pepper cracker bakes. Just don't eat it all en route to mum.

Last minute gift idea: Berry Brothers & Rudd

When in doubt: wine. Berry Brothers recommend their own new vintage Berry Bros. & Rudd label wines including 2014 Berry Bros. & Rudd St Emilion by Ch. De Fondel for £22.50 and 2015 Australian Shiraz by Elderton for £12.50. Or try the Good Ordinary Claret, with the special edition label by Luke Edward Hall. Just don't drink it all en route to mum.
