Mother’s Ruin

 Brace yourselves for portraits with over-sized heads, hands like sunflowers and lego-style hair-dos… as we launch the Briscola Mother’s Day gallery.

Following the success of our kids’ teatime event in February, we are delighted to announce our post-school Mother’s Day event on Wednesday 2nd March. We shall be whipping up another batch of the well-received fresh pasta Bolognese and Pizzas, to accompany the creation of the new children’s gallery – an ode to Happy Valley Mums.

A little apprehensive about the place being utter chaos, we proceeded with caution with our first event – only to be very pleasantly surprised with immaculate behaviour and a sense of peace; as the kids sat quietly and busily drew pictures, then ate their food. We now feel confident to market this event to the masses – safe in the knowledge that the wine rack will not be torn down, the chair legs won’t be gnawed to death and the parents won’t hit the gin too heavily and start throwing peppermills at each other, or crying in a foetal position in one of the booths.

It was a joy to see kids eating fresh food and asking for second and third helpings, especially of the Bolognese. A quote from one happy four year old customer: ‘Mummy I am NEVER eating the pizza there again. Because the pasta is AMAZING!’

Our Valentine’s afternoon sparked a sea of lovely feedback and there have been more than a few tears at reading some of the messages that the kids wrote, such as:

Love is… my mum – kind, organised, always loves me, helpful, beautiful.

Love is… a special thing in life, it is a way of showing you care for someone and they are very special so you don’t want to lose them.

Love is… an egg lorry.

The latter of these admittedly posing a lower risk of heartache and betrayal.

Please call or email to book your place – we want to ensure we are able to cater for everyone and have enough staff in place to keep the food flowing and everyone feeling welcome. As before, we will have the bar and restaurant open for any food or drink orders for any of the accompanying adults.

We look forward to seeing you soon for another afternoon of fun and loveliness.

For those of you wanting to treat your mum to a T-bone steak and pint of G & T* on Mother’s Day itself (*author’s preference), we are taking bookings and the kitchen will be open from 1.30-7.30pm. Some places have been booked already so please book early to ensure your place.
