Reviewed June 12, 2013

It is cheaper to buy cheese from your local woolworths. A waste of 10minutes I will never get back. People are rude and stuck up

We are terribly disappointed with you comparing us to Woolworths. If you were comparing us to David Jones or a comparable cheese outlet as our prices are very competitive with these outlets, then we could understand your point. We have a vast range of gourmet, hand-made and exported cheeses that Woolworths do not and will not stock. Comparing us to Woolworths is like comparing McDonalds with a fine dining restaurant. We are upset that you found the staff to be rude and stuck up. If you had a problem with the staff, we wish you would have gone to the manager to enable us to fix any problems.
Thank you for your feedback.

“...is Smelly Cheese Shop the best name???”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

A great range of local and imported cheeses and other delicatessen products including local olive oils. Cheese tasting courses available. They also have a 'cheese room' being a glass walled cool room where they keep some of the more exotic products (no more than 4 people in it at one time please). They also have an interesting(good) attitude to hygiene requesting that anyone feeling unwell ask for and wear a complimentary face mask.

“Lovely Cheeses!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We were craving for cheese and on our way back to the hotel, we stop by this shop and found fresh and lovely cheese that matches the wine we bought! Beautiful!
