Description: 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.

Simply a brilliant shop and cafe.

“Excellent cafe”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

The cafe is bigger than it looks with a largish back room as well as the front room and pavement tables. Great range of food - mine (mushrooms and scrambled eggs) was perfect.

Can get busy so may be a bit of a squeeze on a Saturday.

“Great cafe”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

Went here for lunch with friends and was very impressed with the offerings....

We were not going to have lunch there, instead we were buying cheese for a dinner party. We did not know there was a cafe there as well. After looking at the menu we had some great homemade fishcakes and salads made from the fine cheese shop products.

The waiter made good coffees and we had some amazing local ice cream in cones to walk around beautiful bath with after a good lunch....highly recommended

“Great spot for lunch”
Reviewed March 29, 2011

This must be the best place for lunch in Bath! Freshly made sandwiches with lovely ingredients. A few tables inside as well as several on the sidewalk. A wonderful selection of cheese and a loaf of crusty bread from the shop would make a perfect picnic.
