Did you know that up to 64% of UK families head to the pub to celebrate Mother's Day [1]?

These days, Mother's Day is now more popular to celebrate in the pub than New Year's Eve [2]. Mothering Sunday has become one of the trade's biggest food occasions, thanks to the relaxed, informal and family-friendly atmospheres that pubs do best [3].   

How to be successful this Mother's Day

Remember, this is a family occasion. Keep the little ones entertained by providing colouring books and crayons on each table. It's important to keep them entertained and preoccupied... the children that is [6].
