Celebrating with Mum Made Easy with Portico Places

March 1, 2016

Mother's Day is this Sunday...eek!

We've put together a list of our latest restaurant offers, pampering presents, theatre deals and inspirational ideas for a memorable Mother's Day.

If you haven’t received a Portico Places card, please email places@portico.com and we’ll get one sent out straight away!


A personalised cake from bake-a-boo

If you're looking for a Mother's Day showstopper, this is it!

Present your mamma with a personalised cake, courtesy of bake-a-boo. The team are pros at whipping up mum-approved masterpieces, and can even cater for those who are vegan or gluten, dairy or sugar intolerant.

They also offer wonderful afternoon tea from their princess pink tea room on Mill Lane, so if you were feeling really generous, you could treat mum to a glass of fizz, yummy cakes, sarnies and tea served in vintage tea cups.

Please contact bake-a-boo directly on 020 7435 1666 if you're going to spoil your mum with a cake or cupcakes, or if you want to book in for afternoon tea. They bake cupcakes in batches of 12 and offer whole cakes in one size – 8″, which serves approximately 10-12 adult slices. (Enough for mum and then some!) Remember to quote Portico Places when booking!

Enjoy 20% off celebration cakes or get a free tea with a cake in store with your Portico Places card.


A tasty roast at Clapham Craft Beer Co.

What could make mum happier on her day than not having to cook? Treat her to a delicious roast at the cosy Craft Beer Co. in Clapham - and you'll get yours free if you flash your Portico Places card!

Enjoy 2 for 1 roasts on Sundays with your Portico Places card.


Put the kettle on with In-Fusion Tea!

Make her a cuppa and let her put her feet up! Our latest Portico Place is In-Fusion Tea: an innovative tea business that stocks the best tasting teas from all over the world. Their bestselling tea at the moment is their creamy caramel rooibos. It’s warming and flavoursome, a sweet, woody herbal infusion that’s naturally flavoured with caramel. (The perfect accompaniment to a big slice of cake - conveniently see above!)

Pick up some beautifully packaged tea from their shop in Camden Lock Market (in the East Yard) or buy it directly from their website.

Receive a free pouch of tea from their standard range if you spend £15 or more in store with your Portico Places card. Or get 25% off all products when you spend £20 or more online. Offer code to be entered a checkout is: PORTP25


A meal out at La Collina!

Enjoy a Mother's Day meal to remember at the wonderful La Collina restaurant.

It's a real neighbourhood favourite that's all about authentic Italian food. The charming team are famous for serving immaculately cooked dishes, and there's a wonderful Italian wine list that mums everywhere will appreciate! Click here to read our review.

Where? You'll find the hidden gem on Princess Road, a quiet residential street in the heart of Primrose Hill - just a few minutes’ walk from Camden station.

Enjoy 10% off Monday - Thursday with your Portico Places card. 


Discount theatre tickets at The Bread & Roses!

This year, instead of flowers, chocolates or smellies, why not treat mum to something a bit different – like a night at the theatre?

We've recently partnered with The Bread & Roses, an innovative and award-winning fringe theatre in the heart of Clapham. There’s something on nearly every night of the week at this 50 seat theatre - from innovative comedy sketches, to modern Shakespeare plays. Check out their website to find out what’s currently showing.

Enjoy Concession Ticket Prices for Portico Cardholders.


Wine & dine her at Humble Grape!

Why not take mum for a wine-tasting session at Humble Grape?

Battersea’s best wine shop is as relaxed as could be, with a wonderfully stocked shop, a trendy downstairs restaurant and wine bar and a private room with a big screen playing sport. Humble Grape stocks wine from 54 vineyards across eight countries, and you (and mum) are free to enjoy the finest wine by the glass.

The menu has been designed to complement the wine and features a delicious selection of nibbles and smaller dishes, from biltong and olives, to cheesy sourdough toasties. If you fancy something more substantial, there’s baked camembert with honey, plus meat, vegetarian and cheese platters. Click here to book a table.

Enjoy 20% off your total food bill with your Portico Places card.


Free prosecco cocktail & 10% off at eco!

Lucky mammas will get a free prosecco cocktail with their meal at eco, and any Portico Places cardholder will get 10% off their meal, too.

Call  020 7978 1108 to book a table. Eco is conveniently located on Clapham High Street, just a few minutes from Clapham Common Tube station.

Pampering presents!

If it's some pampering your mum fancies, we have fantastic deals available at some wonderful spas and shops across London.

Kalyana Spa

Treat her to a massage or a facial at Battersea's Kalyana Spa and receive 15% off your total bill Monday - Friday with Portico Places.

Lara Lashes

If you’re looking to ditch the mascara and enjoy an extra ten minutes in bed every morning, why not try out eyelash extensions? New customers can enjoy 10% off at Lara Lashes.

Salon Sin & Jeju Hair

What about a bouncy blow-dry or a fresh haircut? Spoil mum for less with 30% off first visit & free £15 treatment at Salon Sin in Camden, or 10% off all services at Camden's Jeju Hair.

Curled Leaf

Or, if all mum wants is a bit of relaxation, head to Curled Leaf in West Hampstead for a free yoga session! The food there is amazing, too.
