Make Mother’s Day special with Sunday Lunch

Mothering Sunday Lunch at Compton Acres, Poole Dorset

Being caring, dependable and comforting are just some of the qualities that make our mums so special. Taking place just once a year, Mothering Sunday is the perfect opportunity to show all our fabulous mothers the special place they have in our hearts and how much we appreciate them for being who they are.

On this occasion, there is no better way to say thank you to mum on her day, than to treat her to a delicious three-course meal at Compton Acres.

Carefully created by Head Chef Viv and her talented team, this year’s delightful Mothering Sunday Lunch Menu is an ideal gift to says thanks to mum for her unconditional love.

Between 12 pm and 2.30 pm, on Mothering Sunday our menu will include such culinary delights as a Cream of Celery Soup with Poached Quails Egg to start and a delicious Roast Leg of Dorset Lamb with Honey & Thyme Roasted Parsnips for the main course. An excellent treat, she will also be able to enjoy a choice of scrumptious desserts including mother’s favourite Double Chocolate Cheesecake with Honeycomb & Clotted Cream.
