Mother’s Day lunch at The Trentham Estate - the best place to treat your Mum in Staffordshire

After what seems like an eternity of cold, dark days, spring will finally be welcomed with open arms on the 31st March, just in time for one of our favourite days of the year - Mother’s Day! If you want to show Mum how appreciated she is, treat her to a Mother’s Day lunch at one of the many eateries at The Trentham Estate in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

Whether it’s a small (yet suitably indulgent) bite and a coffee you have in mind, a hearty lunchtime carvery, or a sophisticated dining experience accompanied by a fine Italian wine, The Trentham Estate has something to suit all tastes.

Mother’s Day lunch options at The Trentham Estate, Staffordshire

Totally Delicious
With an elegant yet casual vibe, Totally Delicious is the perfect Mother’s Day lunch destination. Head over to the restaurant once you’ve finished shopping for some relaxation time with Mum, and choose from a varied menu including tapas and cocktails.

Caffé Bello

Enticing customers with its delicious coffees and Belgian hot chocolate, Caffé Bello gets mouths watering. A lavish selection of pastries and cakes, as well as irresistible savoury bites such as crisp bruschetta and toasted paninis, awaits. Feel the day-to-day stresses melt away as you sit and enjoy a coffee with Mum in the comfort of the deep leather tub chairs.

Six Arches Restaurant

Set in The Trentham Estate garden centre, the Six Arches Restaurant is ideal for mums who enjoy a hearty Sunday carvery, especially as they won’t have to lift a finger to enjoy this one. As well as a delicious lunchtime carvery, the restaurant also offers smaller bites and kids meals, as well as the chef’s daily specials and classic favourites. Choose to dine in the Estate’s largest restaurant, capable of seating 250 people, or, if you’re lucky enough to be graced with some springtime sunshine, dine outside in the terrace area where you will be surrounded by luscious greenery - the perfect setting for a serene Mother’s Day lunch.

Terrazzo Del Giardino

If you’re really looking to give Mum an extra special Mother’s Day, the Terrazzo Del Giardino restaurant never fails to impress. Authentic Italian cuisine with a strong Venetian influence will have her spoiled for choice; will it be a lovingly made classic such as smoked halibut risotto, or something a little more adventurous, like our pear e dolce wood-fired pizza? Whatever the choice, our selection of fine Italian wines will accompany your meal beautifully (and if there’s still room for more, why not top it all off with one of the many tempting desserts)? An Italian inspired afternoon tea is also on the menu at the Terrazzo Del Giardino, with the option to upgrade - add a bottle of Champagne and a selection of crostini. Again, you can choose to dine inside, or, weather permitting, in the luscious outdoor terrace.


A traditional and quintessentially British coffee shop, Capabilitea is perfect if you’re looking for a lighter option - such as a North Staffordshire Oatcake or jacket potato. A number of handcrafted cakes are on offer too, complemented by an extensive range of loose leaf teas. Absolutely perfect for mums who love nothing more than a tea and cake break!

Joe’s Kitchen

Whether you’re looking for a family-orientated Mother’s Day, or one that’s a little more suited to the adults, Joe’s Kitchen provides the perfect environment - delicious food and the enticing option of cocktails! Inside you’ll be met with lots of floral detail contrasting with on-trend industrial fittings, along with a children’s area to keep little ones occupied before their food arrives. Serving food from breakfast all the way through to night time, eating at Joe’s Kitchen allows you to plan your Mother’s Day at The Trentham Estate in a way that isn’t dictated by lunch! You can find Joe’s Kitchen at the north entrance.


For no-frills but big flavour that embodies comfort food, Pieminister is an alternative option for Mother’s Day lunch. Treat her to one of Pieminister’s award-winning pies (there’s 13 to choose from including a variety of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan pies). Of course, it’s not just pie you’ll find here - why not go for the apt Mothership meal option, which sees your pie sat on top of butter mash, covered with crispy shallots, cheese, gravy and peas? Then, if you manage to champion that, Pieminister offer an amazing selection of cakes, along with tea and coffee to round off your Mother’s Day meal.

The Bakehouse Café Bar

The ideal place to dine if you’ve got big and small eaters in your party, The Bakehouse Café Bar offers up hearty food and delicious drinks that are lovingly made and guaranteed to impress! Choose from a selection of more simple treats like baguettes, pizzas and paninis, or go full-indulgence with their chargrilled burgers, Belgian fries, waffles and crepes. Why not extend the treats past lunchtime by taking home a loaf or two of their homemade artisan bread, or a slice of one of their irresistible cakes?

When lunch is over, it’s time for a Mother’s Day walk or a spot of shopping

After enjoying lunch, an afternoon of shopping in the shopping village is the perfect way to end your day. You’ll find over 70 timber lodges filled with unique and independent retailers offering up the latest fashion, the best ceramics, and health and beauty products. If shopping isn’t on the agenda, explore our beautiful gardens and appreciate the charming scenery of Trentham Gardens with Mum.

Please note, booking is recommended if you wish to dine at Totally Delicious, Six Arches Restaurant, Joe’s Kitchen or Terrazzo Del Giardino.
