Harbour Inn, Porthleven

One of the most iconic spots in Cornwall, and for good reason, Porthleven is a wonderful choice for your Mother’s Day celebrations. Take a hike to Looe Bar and watch the waves rolling in on the shore before heading back to the Harbour Inn – gorgeously refurbished, with plenty of cosy nooks to sink into for the afternoon.

Boasting authentic Cornish character and charm, it’s not hard to see why the Harbour Inn has remained a popular choice for locals and visitors alike. Raise a glass of something bubbly in tribute to the special woman in your life.


The Ship, Plymouth

Fancy something a little different? The Ship in Plymouth offers Sunday roasts with a twist! Enjoy all the very best bits, wrapped up in a Yorkshire pudding – add a few of your favourite sides to make it the ultimate feast.

Located on the harbour’s edge in Plymouth’s historic Barbican area, explore the surroundings before hunkering down in this iconic pub – ideal for family get-togethers. If the weather allows, sit outside in our stylish alfresco area and bathe in a little early spring sunshine; the perfect place for whiling away the afternoon.

The Wellington, Bristol

Moving a little further up the South West, find the bustling city of Bristol with The Wellington lying conveniently on the iconic Gloucester Road.

You’ll be spoilt for choice, with options for all the family – whether it’s a visit to the nearby zoo, the famous suspension bridge, or the historic harbour.

Receive a warm welcome from our team once you return from your adventures, enjoying a well-earnt tipple or two, perfectly paired with one of our roasts.


Chain Locker, Falmouth

Boasting breathtaking harbour views, the Chain Locker offers a memorable Mother’s Day experience. Did you know? The Chain Locker is one of Falmouth’s oldest buildings, and the second oldest pub – first believed to open in 1660! Today, the historic pub is still fondly regarded by both locals and visitors alike.

The ideal place to get away for a few hours and indulge, enjoy award-winning ales and first-rate dining, guaranteed to make Mum’s day all the more special.
