This three-course dinner consists an array of mouthwatering starters, mains and desserts, suitable for any taste.

Enjoy a stroll around Coombe Abbey Park

Whether you’ve decided to go for Sunday lunch or afternoon tea, we definitely recommend walking off those Mother’s Day excesses with a stroll around our neighbouring park and gardens. Begin your wander surrounded by our stunning flower beds, which will just be beginning to bloom ahead of spring. From there, you can either stop by the children’s park or continue down to the duck pond where you’ll be faced with either delving into the thick forested areas of Coombe Park, or to return to gardens. If the weather is behaving and you fancy a lengthy walk, we definitely recommend heading towards the ever-enchanting woods. Feeling inspired to really spoil your mum in a unique way this Mother’s Day? If so, be sure to explore our full offering and list of events so that you and your family don’t miss out.
