A makeover for mum
It’s been a long time coming, but now your little treasures are back to school, it has to be time to give yourself that new look you’ve been promising yourself since the start of summer.
Rathbone Square has plenty to offer the tired mum who’s ready for a spot of much-deserved pampering. At Rawr, there’s a team of friendly beauty experts poised to coax out your inner yummy mummy.

If you’re after something to cleanse the palette and give you a healthy boost at the same time, try a super-refreshing Joe & the Juice signature iced drink such as the Green Mile, a blend of apple, spinach, broccoli, lemon and avocado, or a Herb Tonic fortified with antioxidant turmeric, ginger, pineapple and red bell pepper.
And finally… a culinary delight
You’ve been promising yourself all summer that you’ll get together with your friends and treat yourself to a slap-up meal in a trendy eatery. Well now the kids are back to school, it’s time to do just that! If you’ve been depriving yourself of sumptuous food and indulgent drinks over the holidays in favour of kiddie meals and cola, then book a table at Circolo Popolare.
This is a Rathbone Square restaurant where the floral décor is just as extravagant as the menu. And it’s an experience you’ll never forget! With metre-long sharing pizzas, sizzling skewers from the Sicilian grill and giant silk handkerchief pasta lasagne gracing the menu, and an equally wonderful range for vegetarians and celiacs too, this has to be one place that tops your back to school pamper-me schedule.
