The Memsahib Gin and Tea Bar offers World inspired food, premium cocktails, house crafted gins, tasting menu, afternoon chai (tea) and crafted beers. We take our guests on an extraordinary Anglo-Indian dining experience.
Our tasting menu allows you to discover a dining experience that is truly unique, a pioneering experience with a culinary tour of our worlds inspired menu. Whether you select the meat or vegetarian option you will begin your journey with a vegetable gyoza as your appetiser, followed by a samosa & chutney which is accompanied by a cucumber Gin Teapot. For the meat eaters you are then presented with fresh crab ensaladilla, crab croquettes and coriander and dill pesto, while the vegetarian option offers homemade falafel, hummus and tabbouleh both perfectly paired with a lime and lavender gin with light Indian tonic. Onto the third course; the meat option offers you slow roasted Cotswold belly pork, apple and celery waldorf and hoisin jus, while the vegetarian option tantalises you with cauliflower steak, cauliflower cous cous and a walnut and tamarind sauce, both of these are accompanied with a pina masala. You will then experience an interval to cleanse the pallet in the form of a gin sorbet, a chance to reflect on your first three courses and prepare your taste buds for the next. Once complete you will then have the crispy oriental duck, roasted pepper and broccoli, coriander and spring onion or the roasted vegetable three bean tagine which are complemented with Cha Cha Oolong Chai Gin with a light Indian tonic. Finally let us indulge you with our Bailey’s Cheesecake that will melt in your mouth while you sip on our Lady Sophia’s Martini. If you join us Sunday – Thursday evening you can take advantage of our £15 off discount on the tasting menu.
If you would prefer to, you can choose to dine on two or three courses from our seasonal A La Carte menu, offering a perfect selection of meat, vegetarian and gluten free options. Our food is influenced by the concept of a Memsahib picnic – beautifully prepared nibbles from a variety of international cuisines to be enjoyed whilst sipping our array of gin offerings. We have designed the menu for the whole table to share so you can enjoy mix and match options with your friends and family.
If you join us Thursday – Sunday between 12pm and 4.30pm you can choose to try our Afternoon Chai. This is a unique blend of sweet and savoury street food, which is served in a traditional British afternoon tea manner. You will be presented with a pre-nasta, a starter, savoury snacks, dessert and our tea of the month, with the option of ordering additional house crafted gin and tonics at a reduced rate.
All of our menus are seasonal, locally sourced and sustainable wherever possible. We bring you fresh, new and exciting Anglo-Indian and modern European infused dishes, updating our menus seasonally in order to delight and surprise our guests all year round.
