The Cheese Shed

The Cheese Shed

Great cheese from off the beaten track...

The Cheese Shed was founded in 2006 with the aim of specialising in the great artisan cheese tradition of our region, the Westcountry. We set out to scour the whole area west of Bristol, looking for the very best cheeses, and making them available to people all over the UK via mail order. We now stock over 100 cheeses - including some real rarities - together with suitable accompaniments.

Broadly speaking we cater for three types of customers: cheese enthusiasts, gift buyers … and people seeking exceptional cheese for a wedding or an event. 

The enthusiast loves browsing our huge range of cheeses, some of which really are ‘from off the beaten track’ - rare and unusual products little known outside their own local area. Fancy trying Stithians, Tornegus, Pendragon or Drogo? You’ve come to the right place! Of course we also have all the familiar types, so you’ll find top quality traditionally-made cheddars like Montgomery’s and Keens, our great local blue - Dorset Blue Vinny - and the best hand-made versions of well-known types such as double gloucester and caerphilly.

Where a gift is needed we have a wide range of cheese selections (cheese only) and ‘hampers’ which match cheese to sets of accompaniments including crackers, preserves, wine, beer, cider and more. There should be something for everyone, especially when the possibility of a regular cheese subscription box - or a gift voucher - are added.

And of course we supply cheese for events, most obviously: weddings. The Cheese Shed was born at around the time the idea of the ‘cheese wedding cake’ was taking off, and now we’re one of the country’s leading suppliers. Customers can choose one off-the-peg, or use our unique ‘Cakebuilder’ tool, which allows the creation of a bespoke cheese tower onscreen. This is something that no other cheese supplier has been able to replicate, and it allows you, the customer to create something unique and memorable. As an alternative, we also offer ‘cheese tables’ - specially selected sets of cheeses to suit large gatherings. Devising a cheese selection which offers quality, variety and which is a feast for the eye as well as the taste buds can be a challenge: let us do that job for you! We can also supply ‘bundles’ of biscuits, chutneys and preserves to make sure your guests have just the right thing to enhance their cheese.

The Cheese Shed is pleased to offer members a 10% discount.

Just use the code CSXLR in the box on the basket page. Note that in the case of a pay-as-you-go ‘Culture’ subscription, the discount would apply to box 1 only.
