Mother’s day is nearly with us and we look at four pubs to pick up some last minute tips for the big day.
Food always features heavily as part of many people’s celebrations and Sunday lunch has always been the main stay on Mother’s Day but it's not your only food option. The Dragon in Willington is also offering a champagne breakfast enabling them to maximise bookings on the day and providing customers an alternative to lunch for their celebrations.
Understandably Sunday roast will also be a mainstay of the Sunday lunch however don’t forget the other options. With preplanning now firmly part of post lockdown life providing these options like The Countryman in Kirkby in Ashfield has, is even more important. Their menu not only provides information for vegetarians, but coeliacs as well.
We all like to make the day special for our mums and The Nelson in Burton Joyce is asking family members “Don’t forget to ask staff about a little something for the special lady that today is all about” Promoting the day with a personal touch will always attract customers.
Finally, if you are fully booked for Sunday don’t forget to let people know either on your website and/or social media. The Queens Head in Longford has done this and hopefully this will encourage customers to book early for future events at the pub. Remember people always want what they can't have and that the fear of missing out is always a great way to gently nudge people when you are marketing your pub.
