A lovely shop selling quite a few unusual cheeses. Which you could taste before buying. They also stocked English beers and ciders and wines. Very friendly staff. It is slightly hidden away from the main centre

Thank you for your lovely comments. We bought the shop in 2009 and have introduced lots more local products since you last came. Glad you enjoyed the cheese. Hopefully it won't be as long before you come back again

Thank you for taking the time to review our little shop. I am glad you were, on the whole, satisfied with your visit and I am sorry you found a member of staff to be unhelpful. We normally get really positive comments about our team.

This quirky little cheese shop is a delight. Staff are very welcoming and happy to cut you any size of any of their extensive cheese selection. Advice comes free of charge. I definitely recommend a visit.
