Stopped in for a light lunch. We were warmly received and seated quickly. Hopes rose but were soon dashed. Service was slow (I've a feeling we were temporarily forgotten about). The hot food when it finally arrived was OK, freshly prepared but cold. It wasn't busy so should have been better as there seemed to be several members of staff... More

OK I admit it - I have walked by this cool looking Deli with great frequency and always admired there stunning selection of foods and breads but had never gone it. What was I thinking of? I decided to stop off yesterday for coffee and a snack and was just blown away by the food, the ambience and the friendly... More

They sell the best ever chocolate fudge cake and yummy macaroons served on lovely crockery. Great place to have just coffee and a cake or they also do lunch.

We called in for a light lunch but the crab sandwiches we had were very filling and one round would have been adequate for both of us. This was a simple but tasty meal and other dishes witnessed on leaving the café looked very tempting. Service was very good and friendly. We were two of only four diners in the... More

I love cheese, and you do too this is definitely a place to go. It's like other extremely fine delicatessens in that they have a massive selection, and you can try before you buy. The cafe is cute and cozy; would imagine it would be difficult if full though. Very rustic feel, and fits in with Bath as you imagine... More

This felt like it could be my spiritual home, it has everything I want under one roof. The only thing was the service was a little slow, nothing terrible but for the amount of trade a little slower than desired. The lemon tart and coconut macaroons were heavenly.

TWO SHOPS IN ONE We have a 'cheese shop' with a range of delicious treats, and a café with our own chefs. Our 'cheese shop' groans with artisan cheeses, and great food and wine, some of which you can't buy anywhere else. Our own chefs make everything from scratch - from flaky pastry sausage rolls to chewy pistachio macaroons. We will prepare you a cheese plate from what is in season. Why not graze as you browse?. You may shop in the 'cheese shop' for Keen's Cheddar, our own onion chutney, farmhouse butter and Hobbs House bread, or have them made for you into a sandwich, served with a cappuccino or a glass of wine. OUR STREET FOOD On nights where you simply don't have time to cook, let The Fine Cheese Co. prepare you a feast. Drop into our Walcot Street shop and pick up a delicious, homemade meal a for fuss-free dinner. Alternatively, when those hunger pangs hit at lunch time, grab something from our range to eat al-desko, or alfresco if you are lucky enough! Our chefs Laurent, Julian and Tess have created a Street Food Menu that will change twice a month. The menu includes three dishes that work together perfectly as well as on their own, and a selection of freshly baked pastries, tarts as well as our daily Spanish Tortilla.
