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.

We discovered this cheese shop on our honeymoon and came back 11 years later to find it still going strong. Lovely assortment of English cheeses (and a few others as well). Reasonable prices. Fantastic little shop. It's right behind the large, local market building.

outstanding cheese shop, very friendly helpful and knowledgeable staff, always end up spending lots as the range of cheeses is so great. They even managed to select me a goats cheese which I am normally not a fan, but loved.

Simply the best cheese shop I've ever been to in the UK. Knowledgeable, friendly staff, who are patient and focuses on uniting the customer with the perfect cheese. Sampling positively encouraged, and because the cheeses are properly stored AT THE CORRECT TEMPERATURE, not half frozen as in supermarket chill cabinets, they never disappoint. Brilliant value.
