There have been a few tough milestones for everyone to deal with in the last 12 months and Mother’s Day this year is going to be no exception. So many of us have been cut off from family this year and we are all desperate to make this day as special as possible. Luckily, we have a list of food choices that I guarantee your mum would absolutely love to receive. Honestly, its like all of Cardiff has come together to outdo itself and make sure your Mum gets the best gift she can in 2021. Any pick on this list is worthy of all the wonderful mums who have undoubtedly worked their socks off to make lockdown bearable. Mum’s… we salute you!

The Deck

It cannot be understated how much of a comeback The Deck have made this year! It seems that nothing can stop their triumphant return after a terrible 2020 for the newest hotspot of Penarth Marina. They are determined to keep the ball rolling and have launched ‘Heat at Home’ menu for you to treat your mum with this year. Slow roast brisket burger in a brioche bun is the first item on the new menu with more to be announced

Black Salt

Only a couple of weeks after launching their click and collect menu, Black Salt have already seen some rave reviews rolling in. Mediterranean inspired newcomer offers burgers with calamari sides in the week and mega roasts on Sundays. They are a sister restaurant of the legendary Charleston’s Steakhouse, so I am sure you could get some belter steaks if you fancied them as well.

The Pilot

One of a few on this list that have consistently been delivering some mind-blowing Sunday roasts throughout lockdown, The Pilot is guaranteed to come to the rescue with all the trimmings in tow. No fuss here, just pick your choice of meat and load up on gravy, spuds, and Yorkshire puds. Followed by a classic apple crumble and you are definitely going to see some happy faces! Even if they are over zoom this year!

Little Green Corner

Another business that’s been keeping our homes in bloom during lockdown. Why get mum the flowers when you can get her the whole plant? Houseplants make great Mothers Day gifts because there is such a wide variety available, with some that are low‑maintenance and easy‑going for the new gardener and some that require a little more attention for mums that are well‑versed in all things green‑fingered.

North Star

Under fairly recent new management, The North Star is another one that has made a name for itself in the Roast dinner delivery game in the last few months. You will find all your classics here, with plenty of variety on sides. But not only that, veggies and vegans are fully catered for with a Mediterranean veg Wellington, and cranberry, tofu and nut roast. All the hassle is taken out with an app, linked in their bio.

Secret Garden

Make her smile this Mother’s Day 🌸 with a special bunch of flowers for a special mum! Spring is just around the corner and we think she’d love a beautiful flower bouquet from the Secret Garden.

Curado Bar

Fancy something a bit different for your mum this year? How about the ‘ultimate picnic’? Made up of Spanish meats, artisan crackers, Galician bread and more. Wash it down with a bottle of Cava and you are guaranteed an incredible dining experience. You may not be able to jet away this year, but you could at always dust off the picnic mat in the back garden with this banquet instead.

Heaney’s may have taken the ‘Dine @ Home’ game to a whole new level. Recent editions to their exclusive order only menu have been hand dived Orkney scallops, aged Welsh lamb shoulder, miso caramel chocolate fondant, cured organic salmon… I could go on, but you get the picture. They have pushed the bar in luxury home dining. If your mum misses getting all dressed for a fancy night on the town and 5-star meal, then this ones probably your best bet.



All diets and taste can be satisfied with this list, so how about something special for your mum that is 100% vegan. This ‘inspired by chocolate’ SnaxBar trio box of cocoberry flavours is not just a mouthful to say, it also makes a delicious mouthful of vegan dessert that we are certain your mum would love to try. Beautifully wrapped and so popular their first batch sold out within an hour of uploading; you will have to be quick to secure one of these vegan treats before Sunday.

Oh My Graze

Brand new starter for this list, Oh My Graze offers an all-in-one box of treats that you can treat your mum with. No fuss, no mess, but tons of gourmet variety. After a successful Valentines Day launch, the boutique box is back, this time with smoked salmon sandwiches, hog roast sausage rolls, scones with clotted cream and tons more! Afternoon tea to a whole new level.

Thomas Simmons

Due to popular demand, Tom Simmons is bringing forwards his Wellie Wednesday, specially for mothering Sunday. Available in portions for 2 or 4 people (or just 1 if you fancy a challenge!), you can make this delicious beef wellington the main course of your Sunday meal. Make sure you leave some room for their exceptional sticky toffee pudding though; you do not want to miss out!

Iberico pork fat and thyme roast potatoes, honey glazed heritage carrots, truffled manchego cauliflower cheese, roast hispi cabbage and tender stem broccoli in jambon herb butter… cue Groove Armada. Top all this off with the perfect wine pairing (or sangria if you are feeling like spring might be in the air) and you have got and absolute banger of a Sunday roast right there. Molto bene!

La Pentola

One of many on this list that had to cancel their Mother’s Day bookings last year after the shock of the first lockdown announcement. Luckily, La Pentola’s customers love them so much they had to have takeaways instead. A year later they are looking to do the same with a roast delivered to your door. All the classic trimmings and veggie options so the whole fam can enjoy some homemade gravy and fluffy Yorkshire puddings.

Selections of sandwiches, scones and herbal teas, your mum can put her feet up and relax.

Their two-course menu has the classic beef, pork or lamb option, but with the bonus choice of Half Lobster Thermidor, drizzled with garlic oil and served with fresh sauteed potatoes.
