Dough gourmet pizza restaurant is tucked away down the Corridor, just opposite the Guildhall, and offers all the family favourites with an all-new kids menu (featuring pizzas with rabbit ears!), whilst still catering for some more ‘grown up’ tastes.
Mother’s Day in the countryside
Stay: Sitting on the edge of the pretty village of Pensford, a 25 minute drive from central Bath, Summer House boasts absolutely breath-taking views over the Chew Valley and Pensford Viaduct. Wake up to breakfast is their cosy conservatory and be mesmerised by undulations of green pasture, stretching as far as the eye can see, to the foothills of the Mendips. And at the end of the day, Mum can unwind in their spa, complete with pool, Jacuzzi and steam room.
Do: There are many fantastic spots to the west of Bath to enjoy a walk through nature. Folly Farm is one of Avon Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves, and has a number of waymarked trails, weaving through 250 acres of wildflower meadows and historic woodlands. A little further west lies Chew Valley Lake, a reservoir with a thriving bird population. Or venture out to the Mendip Hills for wild walks through breath-taking, rugged scenery; get up high enough and you may even be able to catch a glimpse of the Welsh coast on a clear day.
Eat: A short drive south from Pensford sits Ston Easton Park, home to a grand Palladian mansion housing a hotel and restaurant, not to mention well-manicured gardens. Ston Easton Park is offering a special ‘Mothering Sunday Lunch or Afternoon Tea’ deal. After lunch, don't miss a stroll about the surrounding gardens.
Alternative Mother’s Day ideas

Do: When you do make your way down into the city centre, how about some alternative entertainment at Bath Escape Room?

Eat: Once you’ve set yourself free, how about a meal full of goodness to refuel in the relaxed surrounds of the Acorn Vegetarian Kitchen?
