Description: Yorks only speacialist cheese shop and cafe. Our peaceful courtyard leads up to the city walls, with a glimpse of the minster. Our simple menu specialises in Cheeseboards, Platters and Grilled Cheese. Try our Artisan coffee from Dark Woods Roastery, or one of our carefully selected wines, beers or ciders. If there's a group of you or you're celebrating a special event why not try our cheese and wine taster menu.

“Have a bang on this!!!!!!”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

We visited Love Cheese in Feb 2013.
The cheese and wine along with the whole lunch experience was superb and when we are next in York, we will 100% visit again.
A suberb dining experience with a very high selection of cheeses and a delightful young girl, who knew her cheeses.
If you read my add, then please give this ago as you won't be disappointed.

“A must for cheese lovers!”
Reviewed 21 February 2013 via mobile

We ate here with a living social voucher - superb vale for money.

Really enjoyed a sharing platter with a couple of glasses of decent house wine. We would happily return and pay full price.

Great to see independent businesses like this in York.

“Great food and drink, service needs attention......”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

I visited this deli with my husband last weekend as I had a voucher for a meal for 2. I was suprised when I rang up and was told there was only one table available in 45 minutes time, as when we arrived the place empty! Why so strict on when we had to be there when there was literally one other couple there?
It's also worth noting that once we were seated and given a menu, no one ever came back to us! Another couple came in for drinks and were served immediaitely - were we invisible? After 20 minutes I had to get up and track down a waitress myself - bad form. Also made even more of a mockery of the fact they were so strict on what time we had to be at the deli.........
The food was delicious though they did bring the wrong platter. We ordered the one with parma ham etc but were brought the one with roast ham and pear. Service aside, the cheese selection was amazing and the wine was very tasty. There was plenty of it as well! We chose one cheese and took a chance on the other two - it did not disappoint!
All in all, excellent but the issues with the service just go to show that delicious food alone is not quite enough.....

“Why is this place not busier??”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

Can't believe I hadn't come across this place before just half way down Gillygate despite it being open about 9m now. Splendid modern approach to platters with total flexibility over the contents. I love the 'Cheese Haters' platter with optional cheese. They have a lovely outside area which is a wonderful escape from the York tourist crowds. And the best bit was the service. Smiles and helpful ideas. Nothing was too much trouble even though we were only just there for a lunchtime snack. A nice place to meet a friend for a long chat and a bit of peace and quiet. Not too overpriced as well.
