SPRING CHEESES

Our cheeses change with the season & are all served ripe and ready with chutney, apple & water biscuits
Camembert Gillot
Exceptional cheese made from raw cows’ milk to a 1912 recipe. Moulded with a ladle by one of the last traditional Camembert makers. Creamy, oozy, delicious.
Northern Blue (V)
Smooth and salty blue from Yorkshire, with a powerful tang. Cries out for a glass of port.
Rutland Red (V)
Long Clawson are probably best known for their Stilton, but they also make the home county’s famous red cheese using traditional methods. Matured for six months, it’s
crumbly, caramelised, and an absolute winner.
Blanche Goats (V)
Sporting a wrinkly coat, this multi award winning delicate and creamy cheese has flavours of honeysuckle and herbs. Awarded Gold in the Best Goat Cheese category at the 2018 British Cheese Awards and Silver for Best Soft Cheese in 2017.
Strathearn
A hand-crafted whisky washed soft cheese. Multi award-winning from an artisan Scottish producer. Using local milk and Glenturret single malt.
