Treat Mum to a seaside escape at Stokehouse Precinct this Mother’s Day

Bring your Mum bayside for a weekend of celebration at Stokehouse and Pontoon.

Forget breakfast in bed, treat your mum this Mother’s Day at Melbourne’s iconic Stokehouse Precinct. Housing Stokehouse and Pontoon, the precinct has curated special menus across both venues to spoil those lovely ladies in your lives.

Upstairs at Stokehouse, take a seat in the Dining Room to enjoy unparalleled views of the bay and a seasonal three-course lunch menu curated by Executive Chef Jason Staudt, for $165 per person. This year, Stokehouse are granting mums double the love by extending their Mother’s Day offering across both Saturday, 8 May and Sunday, 9 May.

With a glass of Rosé Bollinger in hand, you’ll start by sharing one of Stokehouse’s premium Australian seafood platters. For mains, guests will enjoy Aquna sustainable Murray cod, mussel escabeche and lovage; Masala spiced spaghetti squash and sugarloaf cabbage with cashew butter and sorghum or grilled Altair grass-fed sirloin with bone marrow crème fraîche, roast onion and salsa verde.

New Group Pastry Chef Ash Smith will delight by dishing up his latest creations including a mango and white chocolate bar with macadamia and vanilla ice cream, and whisky baba with coconut meringue, wood-fired pineapple and coconut sorbet. And as a special gift for Mum, diners will take home a bon-bon of house-made chocolates for a sweet treat later on and also take home a little piece of the magic with a polaroid photo taken against the Bollinger photo wall.

For those with little ones, bring them along! Stokehouse has curated a two-course children’s menu of a main and dessert for $60 per person. Kids will have the fun of choosing from steak with chips and salad; battered fish bites with chips or herbed pesto pasta, before indulging in a decadent kids sundae.

The Stokehouse Mother’s Day menu will be available on both Saturday, 8 and Sunday, 9 May for lunch only. Bookings can be made via or by calling the Stokehouse reservations team on 03 9525 5555.

Downstairs at Pontoon, Staudt is making a playful adaptation on Melburnians’ favourite meal time by dishing up Brunch by the Beach. Paying homage to a traditional Mother’s Day breakfast in bed, you’ll find all your favourite morning delights from house-made scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam to a brekkie burger with porchetta, a fried egg and chipotle mayo.

For those looking to indulge, look for specials such as smoked salmon rosti with a poached egg and hollandaise sauce, as well as flamed tomatoes on toast with spinach, egg and goat’s cheese dressing. Of course, some of your beach house favourites will also make the menu including Pacific bistro oysters; fish ‘n’ chips with gurnard fillets and Bass Strait sirloin with Café d’Frank V, watercress and radish salad.

Your bayside brunch will be topped off with an array of sweets to finish – think grilled mango with coconut sorbet and shortbread; dark chocolate mousse with crispy pearls or an ice-cream sandwich with peanut butter cookie and a caramel centre. It would be rude not too, right?

You can indulge in Pontoon’s brunch à la carte menu exclusively on Sunday, 9 May only from 10.30am until 3.00pm. Bookings can be made via or by calling the Pontoon reservations team on 9525 5445.
