We first stopped in two years ago while staying in St. Andrews. Got a lovely selection of cheeses to take back to our holiday rental for the evening. We're big cheese people and absolutely appreciate the knowledgable explanations and help in selecting a good assortment!

At Christmas time I ordered a cheese board from them for my parents. So gracious in helping me get it shipped to Arizona. Customer service is top notch.

Having the little outside seating area now just makes it even more lovely. We're heading back to St. Andrews for a few weeks again this summer. We hope to take advantage of a wine and cheese class (or at least a burrata order!!).

We came across this gem and what a find it was. Delightful staff and the most wonderful selection of cheeses and crackers imaginable. We wanted a take out sandwich for lunch and they very helpfully prepared some for us although take out is not something they regularly offer. We will definitely go again and sample more of their delights.

My boyfriend and I decided to have a walk around St Andrews and stumbled across this amazing cheese shop and cafe hidden in a close with just a blackboard tempting you with the offer of wine and cheese. My boyfriend is a cheese LOVER (that's an understatement) so we entered into this small shop where there was a cheese from every country and every county almost...we told the woman and she said she would set us up a plate with cheeses and for me as I LOVE CHEDDAR her best cheddars (my mouth is watering just thinking about it). As we sat outside in the small courtyard with a glass of wine (which was stunning on the palette) this huge plate gorgeously presented arrived in front of us with crackers, grapes, and homemade chutney (which we ended up buying a jar of) and so much cheese I don't think we knew were to start. So all and all this was a fantastic discovery and now is going to be a tradition when we are in St. Andrews to go visit the cheese shop. Yum!!!!

We spent a few days in St Andrews at the end of May, the weather was beautiful so we went for a walk and stumbled upon a secret garden in the middle of St Andrews. We were offered samples of lovely cheeses on South Street and invited into a close leading to a sitting area in a courtyard of the St Andrews Cheese Shop. There we enjoyed a wonderful cheese platter with a glass of exceptional in the sunshine. We were delighted and will definitely be back.
