As always, 5pm Dining makes it easy for you to make sure that your mum has a lovely day. 

OK, let's start with the basics. On our Mother's Day page, you can search the offers available on Friday 20th March, Saturday 21st March or Sunday 22nd March. 

You can look for offers in Glasgow, Edinburgh or both. 

Of course, you can browse the menus to see what the chefs are rustling up. And, if you like what you see, you can book directly with 5pm. 

Italian or Sunday roast?

For example, Piccolino in Edinburgh have, among other main dishes, both paccheri pasta with fresh crabmeat and creamy burrata cheese plus melanzana della mamma- a whole aubergine filled with Mozzarella and basil, baked in tomato sauce, garlic and topped with a sprinkle of Parmigiano. 

We would follow that with a dessert of chocolate and almond cake but suspect that mum may get stuck into the torta ricotta e pere - a light and fluffy cake with rum-poached pears in a creamy sweet ricotta cream, served with chocolate sauce.
Piccolino are charging £21.95 for two courses on their Mother's Day menu. 

In Glasgow, 29 - The Grill at the Square have two courses from the Mother's Day menu at £25. 

As well as a selection of different roasts, the main courses on the menu include a baked fillet of smoked haddock with Bombay new potatoes and buttery peas plus a dish of free-range chicken breast, mushroom and basil pesto tagliatelle, all served with a white wine velouté.

Afternoon tea?

If you suspect that mater may prefer afternoon tea then how about this offer at Cranachan? For £25, mum can enjoy the Mother's Day afternoon tea with a glass of pink Prosecco and tea or coffee. 

As well as lots of different sorts of sarnie, the afternoon tea includes mini plain and cherry scones with clotted cream and honey plus a selection of cakes. We have our beady eyes on the chocolate and peanut butter stack. 

If your mother is a small plates kinda gal then could take a peek at Kilmurry & Co in the Southside? 

£30 will deliver four plates from the Mother's Day menu plus a cocktail. Main pic shows sample small plate from Kilmurry & Co.

There is also the option to get mum a gift for the big day. Our Mother's Day Big Deals are here.
