"The celebration dinner is something we have put together especially to honour this.

"CORA is designed to be enjoyed by everyone from our baked-in house treats, to our Sunday lunches, to special occasion dinners.

"We are so passionate here about the senior team being all women and I love developing female chefs and welcoming women into this industry, which is very white male heavy.

CORA has recently launched a new Sunday lunch offering and will host a special Mother's Day menu on March 27.

For £55, diners can enjoy a five-course chef’s tasting menu with optional wine pairings, featuring dishes such as slow-cooked lamb shoulder, hot smoked trout and a cauliflower velouté with pickled cauliflower and caviar.

An optional wine pairing is available for an extra £45.
