Cheltenham restaurant awarded for good food

The team behind Cheltenham's Memsahib Lounge are celebrating winning a Good Food Blue Ribbon Award.

Co-founded and run by husband and wife team, Litu Mohiuddin and Rina Saha, Memsahib's Gin and Tea Bar opened in 2018 and rebranded itself this year as Memsahib's Lounge.

The Good Food Awards recognise the hard-working teams who strive for culinary excellence within their field. Chosen for their food quality, service and value, the prestigious Blue Ribbon is bestowed upon those with high customer ratings/votes and is known as - the Blue Ribbon for Delicious Dishes.

Since 2002, Good Food Awards have given across a wide range of establishments, ranging from fish and chip shops to fine dining restaurants. Since 2016, the organisers introduced various sub-categories, allowing different types of eateries to shine within their respective categories.

Memsahib's Lounge was in the category for fine dining, restaurants, and products. The restaurant and bar, situated in Cheltenham's Promenade was the only recipient in the town in this category.

With some 599,370 eating establishments within the UK, competition for the Good Food Awards was unsurprisingly tough.

Litu Mohiuddin founder and chef of Memsahib's Lounge said: "We are absolutely delighted to have beenn recognised with the award. We receive excellent feedback from our customers about our food, but to get this independent recognition is brilliant and will hopefully firmly put us on the map as a fine dining establishment.

"This award is not for any one person, but the team as a whole including our chefs, front of house staff and indeed our suppliers who supply us with the fantastic quality local ingredients that are the basis of our dishes.

"We would like to thank all our customers for voting for us and hope that this will be the first of many awards to come."
