I am a fan of the Fine Cheese Co and the products it sells, however, its cafe (on this occaision) did not live up to this. All we ordered was tea to drink, however, the service was terrible. Disappointed.

A gem of a restaurant, just off the beaten tourist track in Bath. The restaurant manager was extremely welcoming and friendly. The menu was relatively small but still had plenty of choice, sandwiches, hot food, cakes and plenty of beverages. I had a lovely cappuccino served in a really pretty cup and a beautifully prepared Welsh Rarebit with green salad,... More

My friend and I both decided to go for the cheese plate as we both love trying new cheeses. The staff were very friendly and were happy to select 6 different cheeses for us to try. The person from the cheese counter came out to explain which ones he had chosen and is clearly very enthusiastic about his job. Another... More

Stopped in for lunch today and the food was very tasty. Unfortunately the experience was marred by rude customer service. Left us feeling uncomfortable.

Had a fantastic Friday afternoon trip here - delicious food and drinks, followed up with a trip to the cheese counter and could hardly stop buying, lots of lovely looking cheeses and very helpful staff who helped with purchases. I thought I'd bought enough cheese for a month, but sadly it's almost all gone already. Will most definitely be back... More

We often pop in here when in Bath for a light lunch and it's always generally very good. Recently they have made the cafe bigger to accommodate more tables which is a good move. The menu offers a good selection of fresh hot & cold sandwiches, soups, cheese boards,etc and there is usually a specials board as well. Once you've... More

This cafe, next to the super cheese shop, has long been my favourite place for coffee in Bath. However, a few months ago, the cafe got bigger and now has quite a few tables so lunch there has become an even better proposition. The selection of cakes and excellent coffee has been a draw but now an expanded lunch menu... More

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at The Fine Cheese Co. Cafe -- a sweet and savory grilled sandwich that was very delicious. The staff was very nice and the atmosphere was warm and friendly.

We popped in just for a cuppa on a chilly Saturday morning and it was so good that we ended up having two with lunch in between.The food is good as the coffee and the establishment is run by a delightful staff of polite young ladies who create a very welcoming atmosphere.Highly recommended.

This is an absolute must-visit for any cheese connoisseur in Bath, both for the unrivaled selection of cheeses on sale in it's shop, and for the adorable cafe which sells delicious food.
