We buy cheese from here and our last selection was at Christmas. The cheese is stored beautifully so the quality and taste is excellent. You are able to buy as much or as little cheese as you want.

We sampled a number of delicious local cheeses and a couple of fruit pastes. The staff were friendly, helpful, and patient and offered up suggestions of what to try and what would go well with our selections.

Apart from winning lots of awards the shop is friendly and staff very knowledgeable. Ask to try before you buy..they have dozens of options and it's all local West Country cheese. Can't go wrong.
