Wickham Market restaurant nominated by local MP 'Highly Commended' in national contest

The Bengal Restaurant in Wickham Market has been Highly Commended in the prestigious Tiffin Cup competition. Unfortunately it wasn't selected to represent its region in the Grand Final of the Tiffin Cup 2019.

The Bengal will receive a certificate and embroidered Tiffin Cup 2019 apron to mark their achievement in this year's competition.

The Tiffin Cup Champion will be chosen from a shortlist of 11 restaurants, each representing their region of Britain, on Tuesday 2nd July 2019 in the Grand Final cook-off in the House of Commons.

The Bengal was nominated by Member of Parliament for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, Dr Dan Poulter, MP.

Keith Vaz, MP, the Co-Chair of the Tiffin Cup said "We are delighted that The Bengal has been Highly Commended in the Tiffin Cup 2019. This is a great tribute not just to the nomination of Dr Dan Poulter, MP, but also to the constituency of Central Suffolk and North Ipswich as a whole."

Local MP, Dr Dan Poulter said "I am delighted that The Bengal has been Highly Commended in the Tiffin Cup. It is unfortunate that they did not manage to reach the Grand Final, but this is a prestigious award and to be honoured in this way is testament to the fantastic efforts of all the team at The Bengal."
