This Mother's Day one of our favourite restaurants, Jones Family is offering complimentary Mumm for Mum.
Seafood lovers London Shell Co. are offering up a great option for Mother's day this year. Ditch the flowers or whatever else you've been buying on a yearly repeat and do something a little different.
London Shell Co are creating a subtly changing menu for both lunch and dinner based around old vs new England aboard floating restaurant, My Fair Lady on Regent’s Canal.
Siblings Harry and Leah Lobek match delicious rare wines with a carefully chosen seafood menu that involves classics such as oysters and clam chowders, simple food done really well and with an added understated flare.
The canal boat will take you from Camden to Little Venice, creating one London’s unforgettable dining experiences and during your dining you can expect poetry, a lovely introduction on what you'll be eating and drinking and music. The atmosphere is more than friendly and any Mum would be pleased as punch with the outing.
Inspired by the oyster bars and crab shacks of New England, Harry and Leah have focused on the culinary and maritime customs of the North Atlantic and its historic trade routes. Signature dishes include a lunchtime New England Clam Chowder (severed in hearty bread bowls) and an elegant seafood platter for the dinner sittings. Throughout the journey, Harry and Leah, as well as the menu’s food and wine suppliers (Wright Brothers and Hattingley Valley), share their relaxed and informed knowledge of the produce. A real delight for those interested in understanding where their food comes from.
Tickets are available at Grub Club and includes wine with each course for £40 per person for lunch and £60 for dinner.

She’ll get to enjoy these all with you!
