8 ideal Mother's day lunch spots to book In London
In addition to bags of atmosphere, Brasserie Zedel has a couple more pluses; namely a menu of French classics that's surprisingly reasonably priced for central London, and interiors with more than a hint of the Wes Anderson about them.

A haven for foliage way before we all started lining our living rooms with plants, Rules is as photogenic as much newer and more premeditated players on London’s food scene, despite being the oldest restaurant in the city – established in 1798, no less.
Mums who were glued to last year’s royal wedding coverage will enjoy the vibe at Rules, where you can kick things off with a Duchess of Cambridge (pink pepper gin and vodka) or a Duchess of Sussex (cognac and champagne nectar) cocktail, before sitting down to the sort of feast we imagine the Queen might enjoy after a bracing walk around Balmoral, like cock-a-leekie soup followed by roast haunch of venison.
