These local businesses are going above and beyond to make sure you’ve got plans in place for Mother’s Day this Sunday
Guerrilla Kitchen Dinner Deliveries
Guerrilla Kitchen and Boxed Events are collaborating to bring restaurant quality roast dinners to your door in these difficult times. The meals will be delivered in recyclable foil trails for you to warm up in your oven, and are all served with buttered spring greens, local carrots, swede puree, cauliflower cheese, roast potatoes and gravy. You can also order a dessert to top off your Mother’s Day meal, with a choice of either sticky toffee pudding or apple crumble. Call 07796143756 by 8pm tonight to order for delivery on Sunday (payment can be made by card on delivery).
Afternoon Tease Treats
Once upon a time, Afternoon Tease had the entire city in thrall to her exquisite cakes and scones, doing a roaring trade from her bustling King Street cafe. The bricks and mortar AT may now be closed, but for a limited time only, you can enjoy some of the cafe’s best bits, with owner Jo selling selection boxes from Mill Road’s Vanderlyle. Containing chocolate Guinness cake, carrot cake, chocolate brownies and cheese scones, the boxes are priced at £15, and can be ordered here.
The Varsity Hotel & Spa is offering guests the chance to purchase customised monetary gift vouchers for Mother’s Day. The vouchers can be spent at both their panoramic brasserie – SIX – as well as The River Bar Steakhouse & Grill. There’s also the option to purchase a gift voucher for Varsity‘s traditional afternoon tea, which includes finger sandwiches, warm scones with clotted cream and jam, and a selection of pastries and cakes. The vouchers are available from £22.50 per person, and can be purchased on the hotel’s website.
