Grace any French table

The cheeses from this marvellous dairy would be good enough to grace any French table. The Monkland Blue is quite exceptional. Well done.

Visited Monklands Dairy today, excellent surroundings, super Ploughmans, informative tour! My only complaint is I bought what I thought was Old Monklands cheese as it was already wrapped but when I opened it up at home it was their creamier version.

My sister in law, who lives nearby in Staunton on Wye, took us to this small cheese factory. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable of the processes involve and made the visit most interesting. We saw every aspect and phase of the process to produce mature cheddar type cheese. Fabulous.

Arrived mid morning and were told a tour of the cheese factory was starting imminently which it did. We had 3 young children with us who were all quite interested in the talk especially getting to splat some curd on the floor! In total the tour was about 20/30 minutes and enlightening. The children enjoyed getting to test some of... More

Interesting to see the way the cheese is made, and to buy some. Quite a small undertaking but worth dropping in if you are passing.

Stop here every year on way to and from our October holiday in Dolgellau. Yet again this year the Little Hereford cheese and homemade soup and bread made a great lunch. Then we stocked up on Smoked Hereford, Little Hereford and Blue Monk cheeses, local beers and liqueurs - in both directions!

All the staff were friendly upon arrival and I decided to do the tour. It was good to see the process from start to finish and you could tell the lady who took the tour was passionate about her craft. Lots of cheese to sample and buy as well as other locally sourced products. There is also a cafe for... More

We bought some of their cheese from Ludlow market, and found that the dairy was close to where we were staying so decided to visit. The place is delightful, with a shop and cafe, with wonderful food and drink. We paid a small fee and had a lovely guided tour round the dairy. It was totally fascinating, and very informative,...
