One of the few hand-ladled stiltons, giving an intensely rich and creamy texture. This cheese has a wonderfully deep, lingering and complex flavour.

Grace's Goats (250g)

Tunworth (250g)

Cow's Milk, Pasteurised

Tunworth has a long-lasting sweet, nutty complex flavour and a creamy texture with a thin wrinkled rind. It is made by hand in small batches with whole cows milk. The best camembert in the world according to Raymond Blanc!

"Tunworth sets the standard for bloomy-rinded soft cow's milk cheese in the UK" - Bronwen Percival, Neal's Yard Dairy

This cheese is made at Hampshire Cheeses by Stacey Hedges and Charlotte Spruce and was founded in 2005.

Red Leicester Thomas Hoe (250g)

Cow's Milk, Pasteurised, Vegetarian

Compact and smooth texture. Slightly sweet, nutty caramelised flavour. Made in a similar way to mature cheddar but given its famous colour by the addition of annatto. Matured for approximately six months, bound in cloth.

Montgomery's (250g)

Cow's Milk, Unpasteurised

At Manor Farm, the cheese is made 7 days a week to ensure the freshness of the milk which is produced by the Montgomery's own herd of 200 Friesian cows. The statesman of the farm "Montgomery's Cheddars" are matured for 12 months wrapped in muslin cloth on wooden shelves. They are the epitome of traditional, handmade, unpasteurised Somerset cheddar. This gives them the rich, sweet, fruity and nutty flavours. The texture is dry with a grainy crunch as it ages. A earthy, 'farmy" strong cheese for cheddar aficionados.
