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.


Happy Father’s Day To All Those Wonderful Dads!

Father's hand

With just one more sleep until Father’s Day, we thought it appropriate to dedicate this latest blog post to the most important men in our lives…our fathers. So just before we welcome all those wonderful dads into our restaurant here at the Marygreen Manor Hotel, we’d like to tell you just why our dads are so great, from their uncanny ability to pull a dad joke out of thin air to their very own special ways they bond with their children. Here goes…

Rough and tumble dads – from play wrestling to running around like lunatics, you can always count on dad to be the rough and tumble one. It can make so many mother’s cringe with fear as they see they precious baby thrown in the air but at the end of the day, everyone knows they’re all having fun and as dads will often say, a little bit of rough and tumble will do a child good.

Dad jokes – as much as you might think they’re super corny, you secretly laugh at them every single time. We groan and moan, “oh god dad, not another one” but we wouldn’t have them any other way. Keep being amazing, dads.

Dads are the best coaches – whether they’re coaching a team or offering a little one-on-one advice when it comes to playing games, dads are the best at being super enthusiastic and it’s this enthusiasm that’s super infectious. Whether it’s football, rugby or cricket, dads will always be there to cheerlead you on and at the end of the day, while most will see it as a love of the sport; it’s simply a love of his kids.

Dad the fierce protector – there’s a very good reason why boys are absolutely terrified of meeting their partner’s dads and that’s because they’re protective and totally unafraid when it comes to instilling fear in anyone they think may cause harm to their child. Dads will chase away the bogeyman; make sure no one picks on you in the playground and pretty much carry on doing so well into adulthood.

Dads are quite simply the best so treat him to a day he won’t forget. Call 01277 225 252 to see if there’s a last minute table for our unforgettable Father’s Day Lunch.
