Best cheese I’ve ever had
Nov 2021 • Couples
The truffle cheddar cheese is honestly the best cheese I’ve ever had. The Gorge cave smoked cheese is also lovely, as are the variety of unusual ciders available. Great shop!

Interesting look at how Cheddar is made by hand.
Aug 2021
We found the tour very interesting and learned about how Cheddar is made. We were able to leave the child's buggy round the back on the way in and collect it later. Lots of old machinery and we ended up in the shop where free samples are handed out... all delicious.

All quite relaxed although busy, we stocked up on cheese and relish for friends back home.

Well worth a visit
Jun 2021
We always get some cheese from here whenever we visit Cheddar Gorge, and it never disappoints. Sadly, things were not up to the usual standard because of the precautions taken for Covid, but the free samples and excellent cheeses were well up to standard.

Must Go Place
May 2021 • Friends
THE place to go for authentic and locally sourced food and drink. Family run business who are both friendly and knowledgeable about the products. Served with a passion for what they do.
Very grateful for helping us out when arriving quite late in the day.

Brilliant
Nov 2020
There wasn't a load of idiots not wearing masks. There were a few but that's life or death in their case. the place was astounding. The cheese is second to none . Over 60 years ive been visiting the area from the age of 5. It looks like the stalagmites and tights have almost all been pinched in the caves but there's one thing they cant pinch its that great taste of cheddar. We parked in the supermarket car park just up the road.

Lovely little cheese shop
Aug 2019
This is a lovely little cheese shop selling many different varities of cheddar all of which are made in the village, including the wondeful cave matured variety. As one would expect, it costs somewhat more than the supermarket but it is worth it for the quality and the taste.

The cave aged.....

Twice a year we go to Cheddar and buy a dozen cheese bulbs at the Cheese Compagny. Friends and family simply adore it.

Tasty
May 2019 • Couples
Gorgeous cheddar cheese which we enjoyed with crackers and red wine when we got back to the caravan . The staff must have changed going by previous reviews because the young man couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful.
Yes the cheese was about £5.00 for a smallish chunk, but great for a prezzie to take back home.

Beautiful cheeses
Mar 2019 • Couples
Had to visit the cheese company and wasn’t disappointed as the range of flavours of my favourite cheese was amazing. I had to buy some to go with the scrumpy I bought. The port infused Cheddar was gorgeous. The range of biscuits they sell to compliment the cheese was also excellent
