Mother's Day in Brighton

Our top picks

There are lots of ways to say ‘thanks mum’ on Mother’s Day. But here at Restaurants Brighton, we’re a big believer in doing it with good food and drink. Our Mother’s Day Brighton guide is here to ensure mums everywhere get spoiled rotten.

Bottomless brunch

There are two types of bottomless brunch in our opinion: the type you go to for a cackle with your friends, and the type you take your mum to. Though a good cackle with your mum can be a joy. To cover all eventualities we stick with listing a range of superior brunch dishes and better quality options on fizz or cocktails that won’t leave your head pounding by late afternoon. Take a look at these lovely bottomless brunches for an afternoon of getting mum just a little bit squiffy

Like the idea of brunch but not the bottomless bit? Give one of these top picks a try.

Family friendly

If taking mum out this Mother’s Day is a full-on family affair then you’ll need to pick a venue that caters well across all generations. These hand-picked venues will serve up something kid-friendly and mum-pleasing, without compromising on either. 

You can also take a look at the previous BRAVO family-friendly winners, it’s a top.

Sussex pubs (stay and dine)

A day-trip into Sussex is always a pleasure and in late March spring will be in full swing making everything extra pretty. After a trip to one of Sussex’s many beauty spots you’ll all be in need of a feed, these Sussex pubs and restaurants won’t disappoint

If you’re looking to make a weekend of it then these venues combine great food and overnight accommodation.

Gift Vouchers

If for whatever reason, you’re not spending Mother’s Day together then a gift voucher is a promise that you will come together and celebrate over food together soon. It’s more than just a piece of paper, it’s a thoughtful gift that says “you’ve been wanting to try this place for a while”, or “remember that time we had a lovely meal here?”
