Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had an absolutely brilliant evening at The Cheese Plate, cannot recommend them enough for their cheese and wine events! We booked a private event for a group of ten and had such a great laugh, ate some delicious cheese and drank beautiful wine. Toby is such a fabulous host, nothing is too much trouble and his sense of humour really makes the evening. Can’t wait to come back again!

Cheesus has been born again! All hail Cheeus king of the ewes! I was recommended The Cheese Plate by my crazy jamaican friend, I rarely take his advice because Emmental. I was hosting a wine and cheese night as part of our annual Christmas festivicheese, Ok no more cheese puns! - I'll brie more serious because I camembert it any more, and then had cheese to supply for our family Christmas. I was a late in my organising but Hope at The Cheese Plate came to the rescue and put together a beautiful and varied spread with some perfect pairing advice. We had to mail order as live in Brighton, cheese arrived well packed and on-time. I'm now thinking for my next holiday Buntingford could be this Pilgrim's Choice. Communication from Hope was great throughout. Guest comment : "It's like every cheese is the best I've ever had" THANK YOU to Hope, Diane, Toby for creating the most talked about food of Christmas 2019.

I ordered a mixed cheese platter for 6-8 people to complement a wine tasting evening and it was incredible and came with some great tasting notes. We actually had 15 guests who all enjoyed cheeses! Very generous portions, lovely service and delicious selection. :) Thank you so much!

My partner & I visited The Cheese Plate for the first time last Friday, for one of their "Cheese & Wine" evenings. Toby, the owner, offered six different cheeses with six different wines, all of which were delicious. The evening was a lot of fun with Toby keeping us all entertained with a blend of his cheese knowledge and banter. There were two couples and one group of three ladies, so just seven guests in total. We returned today to purchase our favourite blue cheese. Highly recommended.

Nice Saturday afternoon lunch in the Cheese Plate in Buntingford. Great cheese. We had a lovely Croque Monsieur each, and greedily followed it up with a Cheese Platter for one that we shared. The cheesemonger was a very jolly chap with an array of terrible jokes. (That's a good thing). A little window table to enjoy your food, have a nice glass of wine and watch people go by. Will definitly be returning, hopefully with friends.

I had bought a wheel of tete de moine last Christmas, which The Cheese Plate had posted to me. It was great and I wanted another one this Christmas but this time I thought I'd drive up to Buntingford and see what else they have. Fortunately I was able to buy their last wheel of tete de moine, which, surprisingly, was the same price as last year! But they had some lovely other cheeses too - a spread of English, French, Swiss, Italian and Spanish I believe. The highlight was the creamy/gooey gorgonzola but I also bought a small pot of garlic jelly - something I hadn't seen before and an excellent morbier, far better than what's on offer in supermarkets.

A great surprise from our daughter was a superb selection of English cheeses delivered to Braughing from Buntingford - an absolute delight.

Had a lovely impromptu lunch with some friends of mine at The Cheese Plate. Great selection plus a cheeky glass. Toby is a great host and really knows his cheeses!

What a great evening - Toby makes the whole event entertaining and informative, and gets all there involved with both the cheeses & wine, as well as chatting to the other guests who were previously strangers. This has become something of a regular event for us. Really can't recommend it enough! (And ignore anyone who says there is not enough cheese and/or wine - if anything, there is too much!)

What a great night. Totally out of our comfort zone, the experience was bought as a gift from our son. Not knowing what to expect we were delighted with the informal, friendly and informative evening. Cheeses were superb, wines excellent host exceptional. Highly recommend would make a great Christmas gift.

We recently visited the cheese plate with friends for a bespoke cheese & wine party. There was just 8 of us and our superb host Toby and his lovely assistant. The Cheese and wine were superb, we enjoyed 5 courses of different cheeses matched perfectly with different wines. Toby was a great host explaining briefly the legacy of the cheese and wine added with knowledge, perfectly professional and great humour.

Eight of us visited last night for a 2nd time (as we enjoyed the 1st so much) with Toby as our host. As usual Toby was jovial and informative about the wines and cheeses. The atmosphere was excellent as was the fare. These evenings are tasters and that is exactly what you get, with a private sitting in a cosy atmosphere. Well done Toby, we are already talking about coming back. The evening was all the better for us for not having any cheese/wine snobs involved.

Similarly to GPS2014, I have been a regular at The Cheese Plate for some time and this too was my first Cheese & Wine Tasting Evening. We were at the same night with GPS2014, but I couldn’t disagree more with his comments - we had such a great evening. Lovely cheese in good sized portions, tasty wine to accompany & even an ice cider to match a blue! Jovial host Toby put on a fun, educational & certainly good value for money evening and I can’t wait to return.

Have used this shop for quite some time and their cheese selection is first class. So went for one of their tasting evenings of cheese and matched wines. What a disappointment. A selection of various hard cheeses with just one soft cheese to finish. Nothing runny, nothing smelly, nothing unusual. Which was so strange given the stuff they sell on a day to day basis. Add to that, it really was tasters, just thin slivers. Nothing you could really get stuck into. The wine selection was OK, and some quite nice choices, but I was expecting something with a wow factor in both cheese and wine and neither delivered. Could not recommend it.
