Mother’s Day has long been a special time for honouring our mothers and maternal bonds, as well as celebrating the influence of mothers in society – so with a hard working mum at its helm, Alexander’s has been busy creating an extra special Mother’s Day weekend throughout March 30 and 31 for you and your loved ones to share.

The Alexander’s parlour is the epitome of old school charm, with its palm court inspired décor and luxurious leather seating – the perfect place to relax and catch up over an intimate and deliciously decadent Afternoon Tea for two served on vintage china. Why not take advantage of our special upgrade to a sparkling Afternoon Tea – available 1200 – 1500 on both the Saturday and Sunday – and free to A Club members. Not an A Club member? – join here now.

Afternoon Tea Alexander's Skipton

If you’ve more of a gathering, then Alexander’s expansive restaurant overlooking its heated garden terraces and the Leeds Liverpool canal will create the perfect family setting. Book early to take advantage of the special Mother’s Day menu available 1230 – 1600 throughout the weekend.

Enjoying this special pamper time, loved ones will start with an amuse bouche and a choice of four starters, including warm beetroot and goats cheese tart or slow confit duck rillettes. Main courses can be dishes for one, or for the ultimate treat why not choose a dish to share? With twelve hour braised shoulder of Nidderdale lamb with salsa verde or shredded ox cheek in crisp suet pastry with red wine jus and caramelised baby shallots to enjoy together, there will be plenty to talk about!

And for £28pp for two courses or £32pp for three, there is almost no excuse not to indulge in one of the yummy desserts, which include a sumptuous baked peanut butter cheesecake and the classic indulgence for mums everywhere, chocolate fondant.

As a final token of Alexander’s appreciation, all mothers will receive their own unique gift of a special Tea Caddy to take home.

Remember smaller guests are always welcome at Alexander’s, receiving their own Little Explorer’s menu and EnchanterWood colouring game and app, which includes main meals from just £7 with dessert included.

As always, Alexander’s caters for vegetarian, vegan and special dietary requirements.

Give the gift of time this Mother’s Day at Alexander’s.
