FRANCE. A mild, soft cheese. A timeless classic and a Gordon’s favourite.
Wine Pairing: this mild cheese will pair heavenly with the fruity Andes Peak Chardonnay.
FRANCE. Goat cheese, soft with a tarty flavour.
Wine Pairing: a tip from our lovely lady behind the cheese counter: add bubbles to goat cheese – Anna de Codorniu Cava.
LANCASHIRE, UK. Strong, mature cheddar with a hard, black wax coating which gives it a buttery and creamy consistency.
ITALY. This medium, soft cheese has a pungent aroma yet is surprisingly medium to mild in strength.
Wine Pairing: The creamy, smooth texture pairs well with our blue bottle Riesling.
FRANCE. Smooth texture cheese with a delicate flavor and a smoked after taste.
NETHERLANDS. Young, mild and creamy cheese, medium-hard in consistency.
Wine Pairing: goes down beautifully with our Pinot Grigio.
Smoked Comté (u)
FRANCE. The classic Comté taste, of a balance of brown-butter and roasted-nut aromas and a sweet finish, with a smoked twist.
Mature Cheddar (v)
CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UK. From Croxton Manor this full flavour mature cheddar is a staple cheese on our wooden plates.
Wookey Hole Hard Goat
SOMERSET, UK. Cave aged to the recipe of cheddar it is a firm, savoury cheese with a ‘hint’ of goat.
Wine Pairing: made to be savoured along with the fruity Touraine Sauvignon Les Eglantines.
SWITZERLAND. A sweet yet salty hard cheese with a distinctive but subtle taste.
NOTTINGHAMSHIRE, UK. Classic English blue cheese, it has a very strong, slightly acidic flavour and a crumbly texture.
Wine Pairing: for a truly decadent experience why not pair it with Port?
ITALY. A milder and creamier version of the Stilton this blue is exceptionally indulgent.
SPAIN. Sheep cheese from La Mancha region. Compact and dry in consistency with a distinct, sharp taste.
Wine Pairing: try it with our Tempranillo for a Quixotic experience.
FRANCE. Mild, soft and creamy with a slightly more aged flavour than Brie, another popular choice.
Wine Pairing: best enjoyed with a Cabernet Sauvignon, we recommend the Lebanon Red.
FRANCE. Dense and silky texture with a nutty aroma and a semi-hard, pâte like consistency.
SWITZERLAND. A very smooth, semi-soft cheese with a river water washed rind.
Wine Pairing: why not treat yourself all the way with an equally smooth wine such as the Chateau Hautes Graves d’Arthus Grand Cru.
Isle of Avalon
SURREY, UK. Sticky fingers are a must with this strong, smelly meaty soft cheese. The process begins with a Port Salut, which is then washed in wine at James Aldridge’s dairy in Godstone. One of those rare instances of British gooeiness.

Inside, if you arrive at around 4.00pm you can normally bag a table, but even after that you can normally find somewhere to perch if you persevere. Don’t be afraid to ask to share a table – all our customers are lovely friendly people.
