The inspiring bunch behind our iconic market in the city have been non-stop throughout the lockdown period, so we think they deserve a bit of love for our spring issue. 

It’s a place born to put smiles on faces, and is a go-to essential when it comes to places to eat for Mother’s Day in Sunderland. 

Whether it’s a deliciously fresh fruit and veg box from Thoburns, artisanal produce from our chums at Ibbitsons, or exquisite gin flavoured gifts with personalised messaging from Ginka, this independent hub really has everything you need to make lasting memories this Mother’s Day. 

Pop in during your lunch break or preorder as you plan ahead for the big day. Remember the drill; mask on, 2m apart and tons of smiles as you go.

The team at Alishaan have kept us going through Lockdown with their tasty takeaway service in recent weeks, and it’s a must when it comes to places to eat in Sunderland with the whole family this Mother’s Day. 

This is your go-to if you’re big on all things fire and spice! Alishaan is nearly everybody’s favourite Bangladeshi restaurant and it’s not hard to see why; perhaps it’s their mouth-watering Facebook pics that whet the appetite – or the incredibly friendly service sure to put smiles on faces?

They’re hosting a fabulous set menu to feast on at home this Mothering Sunday, and there’s something for all the family to enjoy.

Treat that special lady in your life to everything from red onion pickles, Steve’s special sourdough venison and smoked bacon scotch egg, juicy topside of beef plus all the trimmings, before finishing with the likes of whipped dark chocolate and orange. 

With tons of offers to be had, as well as multiple delivery and collection options, The Forge is one of our top picks for Mother’s Day in Sunderland this year. It’s the perfect excuse to treat mam to a day of well-deserved, delicious dining.

We’ve got some great news for sushi-lovers… our chums at Nudo Sushi Box in the Bridges are still open for takeaway!
