Is it a sports bar, or more of a pub?  Because if it’s a bar, then there may be age restrictions (18+, 21+) that could be an easy out for you.  If its more of a pub/restaurant, then that won’t work.

When she RSVPs, is your mother comfortable with saying, “No, I’m sorry, we are unable to accomodate children”? 

If she just shows up with the kids, you’re kind of stuck.  You could ask her to take them home, but she likely wouldn’t come back and would probably be offended by it.  And if they run wild, you could politely ask her to reign them in because it’s a public setting and they are disturbing other patrons to the restaurant. 

Good luck!  Family brings out the hardest situations, sometimes.

@smcs28:  I would let the management deal with her if her children run wild. I would alert the manager of the place and have him tell her “reign them in or leave”.

I agree you guys need to tell her they aren`t invited, her behavior is beyond rude.
