It’s nearly that time of the year when you decide to show your mum that you really do love and appreciate her.
Here are some ideas of places to take her for a Mothers’ Day lunch on Sunday, March 6.
They range from the swanky to the relaxed, but they’re all big on quality, style and welcome
Splash out by taking your old dear to enjoy lunch at Simpson’s, the first restaurant in Birmingham to get a Michelin star. Cooking and service are perfect, the surroundings bright and airy after a Scandi-style makeover. The lunch menu, which includes starters and a dessert from the a la carte menu and a divine roast, costs £55.
20 Highfield Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 3DU. 0121 454 3434.
This airy, relaxed place at the Ikon Gallery is little sister to the rightly respected Opus restaurant and adopts the same high-quality approach.
Treat your ma to afternoon tea. Tea for two costs £30 and includes homemade finger sandwiches, freshly made fancy cakes, scones with clotted cream, fresh fruit preserve and prosecco.

Get messy this Mothers’ Day by feasting on lobster, ribs, burgers, hotdogs and more at this eye-catching and chilled yet vibrant bar and restaurant overlooking Victoria Square. A whole lobster will set you back £25. Eat with your hands!

The arty and buzzing Lord Clifden serves up great simple food, brilliant beers and has a good range of wines. Treat your mum to one of their award-winning Sunday roast, starting at £7.95 and going up to £17.95 for the very hungry!

Take your mum shopping and then enjoy lunch and a glass or two of fizz at The Balcony, the bright, buzzy space on the top-floor of Selfridges. There are snacks and salads as well as more substantial plates such as lamb tagine, with tabbouleh salad and flat bread £16. Very much a destination for ladies who lunch.
