Visited to buy a selection of cheese which were all delicious and happy that they were almost all produced in the South west too. Very friendly, informative service. Looking forward to returning for some cheese and wine one evening with friends.

I’ve just been to our monthly film club at the Blue Walnut. The new owner is a great guy. He’s doing a refit and changing his hours. He’s also going to be selling cheese from his wonderful cheese shop in StMarychurch.
