The women serving was very rude to my wife when she was disappointed when they did not sell Colston Bassett Stilton. This is in stark contrast to shopping for cheese in our local Macknades shop in Faversham where the staff take time to help you...More

Was visiting family and was passing so popped in, what a treat! The range of cheese was very impressive and we were able to sample a good selection before we made our purchase. Great to see a local independent shop. Loved it!

A true gem in Whitstable, fantastic selection of British cheeses. The staff are very knowledgeable and really take the time with the customers. They're open in the evening sometimes so you can have a glass of wine or a beer with your cheese.
