Mother, mummy, madre. Whatever you call them, there’s no doubting that our mums teach us a great deal about life. Without our mums here to educate us, how would we ever know that ‘I don’t know’ is not an answer? Or that a reasonably tidy room actually very closely resembles a pigsty? Or that not keeping warm at absolutely all times could result in you ‘catching your death of cold’.

So with Mother’s Day fast approaching, why not repay your mum’s infinite wisdom with a trip to Lakeside Kitchen & Bar? Our cosy café is the perfect place to enjoy some quality time with your materfamilias. To celebrate this special day, we’re offering roast dinner from £12.50 per person, which comes with a complimentary Prosecco.

In addition to roast dinners, we serve a mouth-watering assortment of delicious food and drink, from sweet snacks to full meals, and from tea to hot chocolate. You can check out our full menu here.

While you and your mum enjoy a well earnt treat at Lakeside, you can relax and take in your serene natural surroundings. Our beautiful outdoor balcony provides great views of Gunwade Lake. This picturesque body of water is home to plenty of wildlife, such as mallard ducks and Canada and greylag geese. You may even catch a glimpse of some of the rarer visitors to Ferry Meadows, like waxwings and goldeneye ducks.

If you feel like taking to the water yourself, pedalo hire is available from Nene Outdoors (external link: opens in new tab) located next to Lakeside. Of course, if you’d rather enjoy the views from the comfort of our café, inside we have a blazing log burner to keep you and your mum warm – after all, you wouldn’t want to catch your death of cold.

Happy Mother’s Day, from everybody at Lakeside.
