Mother’s Day Brighton | Sunday March 10th 2024

Mother’s Day Brighton ideas for this year. Every mum has a different idea of what makes for a good time, and no one knows the mum – or mums – in your life better than you.

Whatever you’re planning, Restaurants Brighton has got a whole host of brilliant Brighton food ideas to make it easier for you. From a fun lunch out with the kids to an ‘oh so genteel’ Mother’s Day afternoon tea, a cheeky bottomless brunch to a glamorous evening cocktail, we’ve got you covered. Perhaps you’re going all out with a gourmet dinner at one of Brighton’s finest restaurants or supper by the fire and a night away at a cosy Sussex pub. Frankly, there are so many great ways to say thank-you, you might just have to take the whole weekend.

A sweet afternoon tea

A peculiarly British and rather wonderful throwback to a bygone era, Mother’s Day afternoon tea is a truly decadent, confection of a meal. A world away from everyday concerns, it’s a rarified treat and could be just the thing for your lovely ma. We’ve put together our choice of dreamy afternoon teas in Brighton, Hove and Sussex and please do take a moment to look at the BRAVO winners for the best afternoon tea category voted for by the public. Just don’t waste too long arguing about how to say ‘scones’…

Mother’s Day Brighton | Best of the Best

Our beautiful seaside city is awash with spectacular Brighton restaurant options for Mother’s Day. To help you make your decision, take a look at the restaurants that have been recognised in the Michelin Guide or search for AA Rosettes to find somewhere with a critic’s approval.

We’d also strongly urge you to check out our BRAVO Award Best Restaurants in Brighton winners for this year.

Mother’s Day Brighton Brunch

Start the day off right with a top-notch flat white from one of Brighton’s best baristas or perhaps a glass of freshly squeezed and a delicious Brighton brunch at one of last year’s BRAVO winners

If your mother enjoys a great brunch, time to natter and the chance to get just a little bit squiffy, then you could go for one of Brighton’s brilliant bottomless brunch options. We’ve chosen a selection of venues serving a range of superior brunch dishes plus fizz and cocktails that we hope won’t leave your head pounding by late afternoon. That being said – perhaps take the opportunity for an indulgent Sunday afternoon nap – before you take ya mama out all night to one of Brighton’s Best Cocktail Bars?

Kids in tow

If this Mother’s Day is a full-on family affair then you’ll need to choose a venue that works for all the generations in your party. We all know that taking the kids out to eat can pose a little challenge from time to time but these hand-picked venues will welcome your little ones and serve up something kid-friendly while still being fun for mum. I mean, who wants to compromise on Mother’s Day? Take a look at these previous BRAVO winners to find more family-friendly recommendations from the locals who know.

Cosy Sussex pubs (stay and dine)

A day in the beautiful Sussex countryside is always such a pleasure and in late March spring will be in full bloom. After a long walk in the South Downs or a visit to one of our many local beauty spots, we’re sure your mother – and maybe you – will be in need of a plate of really good food. These gorgeous Sussex pubs and restaurants will be just the ticket. Perhaps you could also combine with a Sussex walk too?

And if you’re looking to stretch out the celebration, and your legs by the fire, why not book a cosy room for the night and give each other the gift of time.

Mother’s Day Brighton |  GifT voucher

If you’re not spending this Mother’s Day together this year – rather than forgetting all about it – why not consider a gift voucher.

Let your gift tell her, you ‘know she’s been wanting to try your favourite Brighton restaurant for a while’ or you ‘remember the wonderful bottomless brunch you had together at this Brighton cafe’.

Express your hope to celebrate together soon or give her the treat to enjoy while you’re away. We reckon she’ll love the thought.
