When you walk in there is a great smell and the staff are very helpful. There is a small cafe at the back of the shop too!

I enjoy greatly to discover little corners in the city that have character and are great in what they do. The Fine Cheese Co. is one of these places. The food and coffee is great and the staff polite and helpful. Their deli is not short of amazing either. However in a cold winter morning the temperature in the room... More

I had a great bowl of winter vegetable soup at a reasonable price and the coffee was good too. I refrained from the delicious looking cakes only because I'm trying to lose some weight but others were enjoying them! The outside temperature in Bath was around zero centigrade today and unfortunately I was sitting in this very busy, and obviously... More

The restaurant seems a café at first sight, however, there is plenty of space if you walk in there. It also has a lovely terrace, for those who enjoy staying outside. Menu is mainly composed of sandwiches, ciabatas, salads and pastries / cakes but which is highly recommendable is the daily's menu. Nice and different dishes where the strong italian-french... More

Lovely tearoom attached to cheese shop. The cakes are to die for, Service good, staff friendly. We had the orange cake and apple crumble cake, which we're excellent, so much so we returned the next day.

Found this lovely licensed cafe when we vistited the Saturday flea market opposite. Good service, great food and several wines by the glass. Worth a trip!

Went for a coffee and brunch with friends. We had excellent service and a great breakfast sandwich. The cheeses in the main shop are amazing. The variety of dishes were well thought out both for breakfast and lunch. They all use good quality products. A great place to eat

When I reviewed the cafe nearly 4 years ago new management had destroyed what had been our favourite bolt hole for coffee/lunch in Bath. We have returned regularly over the last year or so and the new team seem to have sorted the issues of cleanliness, friendliness and service. Coffee is great and the selection of sandwiches spot on. Specials... More

We had a lovely cup of tea with slice of passion cake and a bakewell slice. Service was good, the cakes were tasty. We then purchased some cheeses and received an expert service in helping us choose a cheddar and a blue cheese. There is a vast selection of cheeses and they even do a mail order service. Highly recommended.

Thank BKRichardson

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.
