300g Hafod Cheddar - a lovely, local traditional cheese made by Sam & Racheal Holden in Llangybi (pasteurised cows milk, traditional animal rennet). Organic.
300g Colston Bassett Stilton - a classic blue Stilton, creamy, fruity, buttery texture and a long lasting flavour. Non Organic.

OR 220g Kirkhams Lancashire - a traditional cheese, made with the curds of 3 days to give complex flavours. The best cheese on toast... ever! (unpasteurised cows milk & traditional animal rennet.). Non Organic.
200g Saval - a rich, raw milk cheese made in Llandysul by Teifi cheese (pasteurised cows milk, traditional animal rennet). Non Organic.
200g Baron Bigod - The only Brie-De-Meaux-style cheese produced in the UK. This is a lovely rich soft cheese, earthy and mushroomey flavours (unpasteurised goats milk & traditional animal rennet). Non Organic.
Made by the same producers of Persille De Malzieu, 1924 blends two milk types to produce a buttery, lightly spiced blue, sweeter than it’s stable mate. Named after the year they brought in the protected name of origin for Roquefort, this cheese would have been known as a Roquefort apart from that fact that it doesn’t go near the caves for maturation.
Unpasteurised Cow & Sheep Milk, Traditional Animal Rennet.
As traditional cheeses go, this one has class. Appleby’s Cheshire’s soft, mineral flavour crumbles perfectly as you cut it. The beautiful, almost pinky-orange cheese (annatto added for colour) has a wonderful nutty flavour and is seriously addictive.
Unpasteurised Cows Milk & Traditional Animal Rennet.
New kid on the brie-block, this cheese from Suffolk is changing the landscape of English soft brie-style cheese. Developed along the lines of a traditional French Brie de Meaux, even down to the breed of cows they milk (Montbeliarde). A new favourite of ours and a great choice for the Christmas day cheeseboard.
Brie de Meaux
The absolute classic French brie. With rich, cabbage flavours, and an unctuous runny texture, we love this traditional, pungent cheese. A strong cheese, it is also wonderful to add a deep flavour to pies and pastries, but my favourite is simply smeared on bread.
Classic French Cheese with a Crusty Loaf
This cheese selection will be wrapped and gift labelled. Packed into a paper handled bag.
This selection includes one of our Crusty Loaves (may be fresh or frozen).
200g Brie de Meaux - a classic French brie, cabbagey rich and full flavour. At room temperature this cheese will run away from you! (unpasteurised cows milk & traditional animal rennet). Non Organic.
300g Comte - matured for more than 12 months, this caramelly, nutty, rich cheese has a very long finish (unpasteurised cows milk & traditional animal rennet). Non Organic.
200g Fourme D'ambert - A creamy soft blue cheese from the Auvergne region, central France. Made from cows milk (pasteurised cows milk & traditional animal rennet). Non Organic.
1x Llangres - a delicious french, mild washed-rind cheese; soft and crumbly at the same time. (pasteurised cows milk & traditional animal rennet). Non Organic.
Colston Bassett Stilton
In our opinion, the King of the Blues, Colston Bassett Stilton is a beautiful, rich, fruity, creamy and balanced blue cheese. Loved by non-blue cheese lovers, and hard-core blue fans alike, this cheese ticks all the boxes without being too much. At this time of year this cheese really sings. Have a taste and try for yourself.
Pasteurised Cows Milk & Traditional Animal Rennet.
This cheese is only made during the summer months, when the cows are grazing the lush grass fields high up in the ‘alpage’ (mountain fields) in south east France. Matured for more than 12 months, this cheese has a full, nutty, caramelly flavour that goes on long after you have finished eating.
Goats Milk Gouda - organic
A lovely traditional Gouda from Holland, but made from Goat’s milk. As a young cheese, this one is soft, sweet and milky, and as it matures increases in intensity, and the texture becomes drier.
Pasteurised Goats Milk & Vegetarian Rennet.
A mature Caerphilly (approx. 10 weeks old), with a natural, suede-like grey rind. As it matures, this cheese breaks down to give mushroomey, earthy tones, and as you move to the centre of the cheese it is firmer, crumbly, with a fresh, lemony, bright, clean flavour.
Made by Giana Ferguson in Cork, Ireland. A mild and gentle washed rind cows cheese, Gubbeen has a sweet, milky flavour .
Pasteurised Cow Milk, Traditional Animal Rennet.
Hafod Cheddar - organic
Traditional cow’s milk Cheddar made in Ceredigion. Matured for 10 to 12 months, this cheese has a strong, full flavour, with a deep and long-lasting after-taste.
OUT OF STOCK
An ashed-rind goats milk cheese made in Staffordshire & matured at Neal's Yard Dairy in London. Dense texture with a milky, long grassy flavour.
Unpasteurised Goats Milk, Traditional Animal Rennet.
The curd from three consecutive days make are mixed together to make this cheese, giving it complexity of fl avour and wonder of texture never to be seen in another Lancashire (a-hem, in my opinion!). Doughy, savoury, soft and crumbly, this is a lovely traditional Lancashire, and it makes the best cheese on toast in the world.
An all year round favourite, this lovely orange cheese from the Champagne and Burgundy regions of France is creamy, fudgy and fruity. Washed in Marc de Bourgogne, an eau de vie made from Champagne grape skins, the delicate moulds on the outside lead to the softening of the paste.
Pasteurised Cows Milk, Traditional Animal Rennet.
This traditional Spanish cheese has complex, yet creamy flavours. Get some quince paste on this for the authentic accompaniment, sweet and savoury combination is perfect.
Pasteurised Sheep's Milk & Traditional Animal Rennet.
Parmigiano Reggiano - organic
The old faithful, no cook can do without this staple in the kitchen. Aged for more than 24 months, this traditional parmesan has lots of flavour.
Pecorino - organic
A lovely Italian Pecorino, matured over 6 months. Having a more intense flavour than the younger Pecorino but still very gentle and milky.
Unpasteurised Sheep's Milk & Traditional Animal Rennet.
Perl Las - organic
A cow’s milk blue cheese from Carmarthenshire. Dense, buttery, rounded flavour. Medium strength, great to eat, but it works really well in cooking – a little goes a long way.
Pasteurised Cows Milk & Vegetarian Rennet.
Perl Wen - organic
Creamy, cow’s milk cheese from Carmarthenshire. It looks like a brie-style cheese with its beautiful white rind and yellow paste, but the flavours are more milky and buttery, and less vegetable. The cheese is a firm cream texture, and rarely goes runny.
Perroche - Herbed (150g)
Another Neal’s Yard Creamery cheese, but very young and fresh. Mousse-like texture, with lemony bright milky flavours. Approx. 150g each and rolled in herbs (Rosemary, tarragon, or dill).
Pasteurised Goats Milk & Traditional Animal Rennet.
Made at Neal’s Yard Creamery, this goats-milk cheese is a slightly matured log. Delicate white rind and lovely texture as the cheese breaks down under the rind. A stronger goat’s milk flavour with a long aftertaste.
Roquefort - organic
A wonderfully salty-sweet intense blue cheese from the south of France. Matured in caves, this Roquefort has a soft texture and big on flavour, both salty and sweet at the same time. Another incredibly addictive cheese.
A rich, raw cow’s milk cheese made in Llandysul by the Teifi Cheesemakers. This cheese is a washed-rind cheese, with the rind maturing over time and developing pungent, classic ‘stinky-cheese’ moulds that lead to a rich, and savoury cheese with a salty, almost meaty tang.
St Nectaire Fermier
A semi-soft bloomy rind cheese with a cream-coloured centre. This cheese is made at altitudes exceeding 1,000 meters. The cows feed on rich and perfumed volcanic pastures of the Auvergne region.
Once made, the cheese is ripened for two months and the thick rind gives off a subtle and slightly pungent smell of straw and mushrooms. The cheese itself has soft acidity with a silky texture. A pronounced tastes of nuts, mushrooms and milk.

Stichelton - Organic
Stichelton can exhibit a multitude of long lasting flavours ranging from green apples to beef stock. It has a juicy acidity and toasty, biscuity notes towards the rind. Fantastic British blue cheese. Texture like butter, it melts in your mouth and has a rich, creamy flavours.

Strong, pungent, washed-rind cheese from Italy. The flavour intensifies with age, but is surprisingly mild, milky and unctuous.

A Gouda-style cheese with cumin. It has a dense, smooth and creamy texture with a mellow flavour that gets stronger with age.
Vacherin Mont D'or (450g)
Made from mid-August to mid-March and wrapped in spruce bark, this is not a cheese, it’s a winter ritual. Rich, earthy, and sweet, this cheese is wonderful eaten on a cheeseboard, or baked in the oven… a clove of garlic, a splash of white wine, and into it dunk bread or roasted vegetables, that’s my Christmas eve sorted.
Whin Yeats Wensleydale
A new cheese, but a traditional recipe. Cloth-bound & aged between a few weeks to a few months. Milky, yoghurty, mellow & savoury.
