The best places to celebrate Mother’s Day in Leeds 2024

Our parental figures, be it a mum that’s biological, step, adopted or honorary, deserve to be treated way more than once a year.

Whether they pick up the phone and let you chat on for hours, drink wine with you or just are always there when you need them the most: they really are superheroes in their own right.

From changing nappies to helping you navigate the adult world, Mother’s Day is about celebrating all that these figures have done, and continue to do for us. One of our favourite ways to show our appreciation for our mother figures is to take them out for some lunch or find a quaint spot in the city centre to catch up over a drink or two, but there really are limitless ways to show your appreciation- starting with a thoughtful card and if in doubt, say it with food.

We’ve rounded up our favourite places to visit this Mother’s Day to help you find all the places you could want to visit with yours.

Say it with a roast

Over the past year, we’ve been sharing our favourite feature ‘Sunday Roasts Shoutouts’ on Instagram, where (you guessed it) we give you the low-down on our favourite roasts of the week.

At present, we’re still managing to find new and delicious options every single week. But to save you scrolling through thousands of posts from the last year or so, you can find all of our shoutouts to date right here, plus a few unseen on our socials, shared from different members of our team.

You can find our complete list here.
