Lido Cafés Under New Management

In The Park Ltd is a new company dedicated to providing quality catering services at Sandford Parks Lido, Cheltenham, incorporating the newly rebranded Café Lido and separate Park Café. The Café Lido will remain a seasonal venue, but the Park Café will now be open all year round.

The company was founded by Susannah Moffat of Cheltenham Coffee Co Ltd, who also runs the award winning Central Cross Café and newly renovated Boathouse in Pittville Park.

“I’m delighted to be working with the trustees to bring something new to this wonderful historic facility that we in Cheltenham are lucky to have on our doorstep.  Park cafes should be a thriving hub of the local community, providing good quality, simple, home-made food for dog walkers, parents and children, business people, teenagers, pensioners and - with the wonderful facilities of the Lido in the summer months, families enjoying the heated open air pool. My staff and I aim to create a fun, friendly atmosphere for people to come together and enjoy both The Lido and Sandford Park, and we are dedicated to providing the best customer service we possibly can. We are committed to environmentally and ethically responsible practices, using compostable takeaway packing, fairly traded produce, waste recycling schemes, and source locally wherever possible.  We want to see more and more people using these facilities - and building a stronger community because of it.”

Susannah was recently a finalist in the ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ category in the 2014 Gloucestershire Women in Business Awards and has won several awards for her work in Pittville Park including ‘Best Café’ Taste of Gloucestershire 2013, and Taste of the West ‘Gold’ for hospitality.
