Where better to buy our premium cheddar than in the heart of the old village where our shop is located at the bottom of Cheddar Gorge itself? Here you can sample our range of cheddars from 6 month-matured ‘Mellow’ to our unique ‘Cave Matured’ and classic ‘Vintage’ two year old cheddars. It’s quite a range; tasting and comparing allows you and your palate to adjust and find the right cheese to tickle your taste buds. You can also sample our various naturally flavoured cheddars along with our esteemed Oak Smoked Cheddar and even our delicious Natural Blue Cheddar.

We stock a wide range of accompaniments including guest cheeses, pickles & preserves, cheese straws, savoury biscuits, pottery, cheeseboards and cheese knives too. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are here to welcome you, offer advice, cheese tasters and answer any questions you may have.

We are open 7 days a week (with the exception of the Christmas few days) and we open at 10am. Closing times vary, depending on the season. In the winter we may close at 4pm when it is quiet, but during the holidays and summer season closing time is approximately 5.00pm.
