“Had a smashing time today watching Luke make the cheese. My lad (9) now wants to be a cheese maker – he didn’t even like cheese before today xxx”

This place is a must for cheese lovers. 〰️Good range of different cheddar cheeses. There are many presentations of cheese packs so you can buy for affordable price a nice gift from cheddar. 〰️Lovely staff and nice atmosphere. They offered us to try some cheeses to decide what we preferred to buy. My choice was the pack of vintage, cave mature and oak smoke cheddar.

There’s a reason it’s called cheddar and this place is it! The largest cheese company in cheddar why would anyone go anywhere else!? They are clearly very knowledgeable about their cheddar and what flavours/ herbs to put with it and their chutneys/ jams are delicious- I’ve tried them all! The cheese straws and very strong too unlike most so if you like your mature rich cheese straws they are by far the best cheddar straws in the world! I will always buy from this company when in Cheddar Village and it’s a lovely day out in the gorge too. Highly recommend.
