Tom’s Kitchen

To treat your mum to an indulgent brunch this year, look no further than Tom’s Kitchen in London’s Canary Wharf. The brunch menu offers classic dishes with a luxurious twist – the truffled eggs Benedict and Tom’s full English are not to be missed. Kids eat for free on weekends, too, so book your table today for a special family celebration.

This Sunday, tapas legends Salt Yard are giving mums a complimentary glass of fizz across all their sites in London. Head to Salt Yard, Ember Yard, Dehesa, Opera Tavern or Veneta for a selection of the finest Italian and Spanish charcuterie, cheese and small plates and treat your mum to some bubbly. We can’t get enough of the creamy burrata cheese at Veneta!
