“I was going to write a review, but I thought it would be a bit cheesy... **groan**”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

It sells cheese, and there's a lot of girls in there trying to flog you cheese. I made an off colour remark/joke about a particular picture of cheese in the store. The staff were polite enough to titter nervously, even though in most cases I would've expected to be asked to leave the premises.

I exploited the chance of "tasting" as much cheese as possible in the pretence of buying some. I can definitely confirm that they do proper cheese. I ate quite a bit before I bůggered off without buying anything.

All in all this is a sweet little shop with some helpful staff. The prices are reasonable, but if you're short for cash and you fancy a free snack, you can chore a "taster" from the obliging young ladies in the store.

Excellent selection of cheese, all local. Staff knowledgeable and you can try before you buy.
Can't fault it.

“Mmmmmm cheese”

these girls know their cheese! The mustard and ale one is delicious! Once we'd eaten it all (less than 2 days) I felt a genuine sense of loss. Dark times :(

“Knowledgeable and helpful”

A good and varied selection of cheeses. You could try a sample of any of them and we returned twice in five days spending £30 each time.

“Cheese Lovers Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

If you like cheese then you will love this. Keep an eye out for their bi-annual cheese fair usually held in August at the Tavistock Town Hall.
