we love cheese

Everything about cheese, the taste, the texture. Hard cheese. Soft Cheese. Goats. Vegetarian.  Cheese From the Forest and close to home. Guest Cheeses from around the UK and beyond. We aim to have everyones firm favourites and treat you to some new cheese adventures.

It may look a funny colour or smell a bit more than you have tried before, just ask and have a little taste – you may just find a new favourite. If you don’t try it, you’ll never know!

cider & ales from the forest & Beyond

What goes better with after a long walk or ride in The Forest than a good beer or cider? Obviously with some great cheese!

Stocking local beers and ciders from producers in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley, and also some interesting guest beers, we want you to taste and enjoy regular favourites, some specials and also some new ones you may not have seen before.

Happy Fathers Day!

If your Dad likes cheese or chocolate or beer or cider or pies or pastries or likes to cook or simply just likes nice things to eat, savoury or sweet, then we can probably help 🙂 We can even gift box it for you –  from single bottle bags to extra large hampers (and if you’re not sure what he’d like, there’s always a gift voucher option so he can choose) .
