Manchester’s Chop Houses are giving a FREE glass of fizz and dessert to all mums this Mother’s Day


Mothering Sunday is nearly here. If you haven’t yet decided on your plans for the day, the Victorian Chop House Company is offering all Mancunian mums some extra special treats.

Throughout the day, all mums who visit any of Manchester’s three Chop Houses will be showered with freebies, with each and every mum receiving a complimentary glass of fizz – and a dessert of their choice – to thank them for all of the hard work they put into raising us.

Perfect for a whole family affair, indulge in a selection of their best of British Sunday specials, including the finest slow roast rump of beef, half a roast of succulent Goosnargh  chicken, roast pork belly or garlic and rosemary roast shoulder of tender lamb.

All Sunday specials are served alongside the Chop Houses’ renowned Yorkshire puddings, dripping roast potatoes, spring greens, braised red cabbage, honey roast roots and extra thick gravy – which means the greatest Sunday roast in the city is just moments away.

After satisfying all of your Sunday dinner desires, dig into some stunning desserts – with mum receiving her sweet treat free of charge – including their new mouth-watering spring menu additions burnt lemon Cambridge cream and caramel chocolate parfait.

With Mother’s Day just a stone’s throw away, the Victorian Chop House Company want to celebrate the hard-working mums who make up the Chop House team, recognising that for them the most important job of all is being a mum.

Meet the mums behind the Chop House.

Selina and daughter Georgie

Selina Lee is one of the longest standing members of the Chop House team, having joined  them in 2005. Now general manager of Mr Thomas’s Chop House, Selina has served up more meals than your average mum in her 14 years at the restaurant .

Earlier this month, Mr Thomas’s was renamed Mrs Sarah’s Chop House in commemoration of the remarkable mother and daughter, both called Sarah, who ran the Victorian pub at a time when women weren’t even allowed inside the Chop Houses.

An inspiring moment – and hopefully one that will teach Selina’s daughter Georgie the importance of women in history.

Jemma, daughters Lila and Lizzie and grandma Viv

Joining Selina in the celebrations is Jemma Carr, who has been part of the Victorian Chop House Company for nearly six years.

As the proud mum of two beautiful girls, Lizzie and Lila, Jemma looks after everything Chop House-related by day and her daughters by night.

Jemma and her girls will be celebrating with their grandma Viv who can’t wait for a bowl of Mr Lowry’s rice pudding, a dish she looks forward to during every Chop House visit.

For a truly unforgettable Mother’s Day, treat your mum to the best of the best at one of the Victorian Chop Houses’ three venues  – Tom’sSam’s, and Albert’s.
