A lovely little stop for those who like cheese or just like to see how things are made. We took the 30 minute tour (£3 per person) and found the cheesemaker who lead the tour informative and entertaining. The tour is great for children too as you are invited to do the 'splat' test which is throwing bits of half... More

Lovely cafe(great cakes and coffee), staff generally pleasant. Cheese tour fascinating and a lovely lady took us round and really went out of her way with the kids. Only half tour but can linger in cafe!!!

My daughter and I stopped here for a glass of local Herefordshire apple juice on the way to Hay on Wye and enjoyed a pleasant sojourn in the sunny garden. There was a sneaky chicken who alternated between looking for grubs and begging at the tables which kept us amused. Keep your fingers clear of her! I would have liked... More

Amazing place to visit for cheese lovers! I organised a hen do lunch here with the help of the Dairy team who were incredibly helpful and accommodating! We had a really interesting mini tour of the dairy, which roused our taste buds for the amazing and very tasty cheese lunch that followed!

Lovely cheese, lovely man serving, pity about the miserable ladies doing the food, a smile would of gone a long way, obviously don't like their job! Nevertheless it didn't spoil our visit, unfortunately we didn't get to see the cheese making but will go back sometime to see it. Bought some lovely cheese

Recently visited this fascinating dairy to have a look at how the cheese is made. The lady (owner) who showed us round was so enthusiastic about the cheeses they made, the tour was so interesting, she didn't rush us round and was more than happy to answer all questions (some of them probably daft!!). On our tour there was just... More

We loved our visit to Monkland Cheese Dairy and had an educational tour with a very detailed and entertaining explanation about how the cheeses are made. We sat in the garden afterwards and had some really lovely tea and cake. Unable to resist, we went home with 3 of the cheeses that we saw being made and big smiles on... More

The dairy tour is fascinating and all the homemade cheeses are very yummy .Home-made cakes and lunches are also fab! It is the best café for miles. Easy to find and lots of parking. Lunch in the garden is lovely in summer.

Took the 25 minute cheese making tour last friday: fun, informative and interesting, seeing the process from liquid milk to Little Hereford cheese. Good cafe too. Well worth short detour from Leominster.

I last visited on 30 May 2014, about ten years after my first visit. I go when I can because I can be confident of good food in pleasant surroundings served by friendly and efficient staff. Yesterday I had a Little Hereford ploughman's, which comprised very tasty cheese, good bread, slices of apple, grapes and celery, and a bowl of... More
