Back in stock after ages, raw milk Gorwydd (pronounced gor-with) Caerphilly from Trethowans Dairy now based in Somerset. Would be lovely with an oatcake, a pot of jam and a tumbler of whisky, or pot of tea, to celebrate the early onset of another Christchurch winter. Marvelous weather for a trip to the cheese shop and a brisk, fortifying stroll around the Arts Centre and environs - the Museum, Art Gallery, Scorpio Books, Curators Deli, Hagley Park................... ...

Very sad to learn of the death of Veronica Steele of Milleens Cheese. Sarah, me and fellow Neal's Yard cheesemonger William Oglethorpe spent half a week, 20 years ago, learning about this smelly and utterly gorgeous cheese. Veronica and Norman not only shared their home but lent wisdom and understanding (and not just about cheese) to rookie mongers undertaking an Irish road trip. ... See MoreSee Less

If you only buy one cheese for Christmas then might we suggest Stilton from Colston Bassett Dairy courtesy of Neal's Yard Dairy. Marvelous! ... See MoreSee Less

Heath WellsHaving bought some only a couple of days ago I absolutely concur - one of, if not, the best cheeses in your cheese room!

After all these years we have tote bags and t shirts emblazoned with our cheesy logo. Just in time for Xmas! And the Aspinwall household can attest to the fact that they wash beautifully. Thank you to Lee at Mesh Screenprinting for the marvelous work!
We are now open all the way to Christmas Eve.

Heath WellsSo a funny happened on the way home from The Canterbury Cheesemongers... Having come in and bought one the tees shown in this post, along with some divine Colston Bassett stilton and Mahoe Very Old Edam, I had grand ideas of a photoshoot showing off said tee and cheese all on a nice wooden cheeseboard etc... it would have made a great artsy pic... Trouble is, the cheese was sooo yummy looking/smelling that stilton never actually made it home and the edam was no longer in any fit condition to be photographed... Oh dear... So, if I want to set up the photoshoot I wanted it looks like I need to come back in for some more "props"
