the forest deli tasting Corner

a Great way to sample the fab produce available in the deli

For the love of LOCAL

Share our love of local and join us here at Forest Deli for a unique tasting experience in our bespoke Tasting Corner sampling some of our delicious local produce.

The Tasting Corner is a foodie’s heaven, an opportunity to have a one-of-a-kind tasting experience with our own knowledgeable guide Simon to give you a taste of some of the wonderful produce we sell here at the deli. Join us for a cheese and beer tasting experience, brewery of the month experience or cheese and cider tasting experience or book onto a seasonal experience to sample some of the best flavours of the season.

We are fully licenced, in a convenient location in the centre of Coleford and have built a cosy tasting area right here in the deli for you to enjoy a delicious tasting experience on site. Personalised tasting notes are always provided and they are a fun, relaxed way to learn about a wide range of produce.

The Tasting Corner is ideal for groups of up to 10 and can be booked outside of opening hours. And of course the benefit of running the event on site is that if you want to purchase any of the products you try on the experience they are right alongside you.

Why not try a:

Cheese Tasting Experience

Forest Deli is all about ‘for the love of cheese’ so our new Tasting Corner is the perfect location for sharing our love of cheese with you. We provide a tailored selection of cheeses for each experience and flexible pairings can be with wine, beer, gin, mead, cider or any other drink or produce of your choice. Learn about the variety of cheeses available, how they are made and what drinks pair with each flavour. There is a fantastic range of local produce here in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley and this is a perfect opportunity to sample them in a relaxed, comfortable location.

Beer Tasting Experience

Simon’s passion (second only to cheese) is beer and his local beer tasting experiences at the Tasting Corner are a great way to sample and learn about some of our brilliant local lagers, ales, stouts and porters. All of the beers we sell at the deli are brewed within a 20 mile radius of the shop so there is nowhere better to come and try them.

Seasonal Tasting Experience

Sample a range of delicious flavours from the season, chosen to bring a taste of local to your plate. From spring delights such as wild garlic to locally picked mushrooms in autumn, learn about a range of products, what to do with them, what to pair them with and enjoy tasting a huge range of interesting flavours from the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.
