Father’s Day Here at Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant

This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday 18th June. We’ve been celebrating this special day for years, especially here at Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant and rightly so, but just where did it originate? Well, despite our love for our fathers, you might be surprised to learn that actually, Father’s Day originated in the United States having been celebrated there since 1966. While many argue over its exact origin, we know the celebration of fatherhood itself began roughly 100 years ago

A huge amount of people believes a Sonora Dodd from Washington, actually came up with the idea after listening to a sermon based on Mother’s Day. Dodd and her siblings were exceptionally close to their father after he’d raised them single-handedly when their mother had died in childbirth. Dodd, subsequently began the campaign and the first unofficial Father’s Day was held in 1910 with towns and cities across America soon following suit. Others claim a Grace Golden Clayton should be credited with the birth of the holiday after she suggested celebrating our male parent way back in 1908. This was following a mine explosion in a near-by town which killed more than 360 men and as such, Grace thought the now fatherless children deserved a day to remember their now lost fathers.

Regardless of its origin, Father’s Day is very much here and while we do agree Father’s should be celebrated every single day, here at Marygreen Manor, we simply can’t pass up an opportunity to celebrate just that little extra. That’s why we have created a very special Father’s Day Lunch with an extra special menu. With delights such as prawn and saffron risotto, duck liver pate and a roast rib eye of beef – it’s guaranteed to put a smile on his face. Call 01277 225252 to book a table today.


Don’t forget those fantastic fathers guys!
