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,...

Came here for lunch with husband and baby. Unfortunately missed out on outdoor seating. Ordered the cheese board for two - what great value. The cheese is divine! Recommend for a lunch with a difference. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food they serve. Very good value.

A quaint little cottage industry. Wonderful cheese and good cafe. The tour is well worth the price. Very informative and fun. A good hidden gem.

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
