Lovely light bite food, toasties up to bigger plate full. Very nice cakes and of course cheese available. Plenty of space to bring the pram in which was handy for us. Well worth a visit before heading in to St Andrews so you are ready for the walk and shops.

“Not a lot of cheese”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Saw signs to The Cheese & Coffee Shop and decided to investigate. We turned into a single track road, complete with potholes and drove towards a farm. The Cheese Shop was just to the left of the farm in a very rural location. We were interested in seeing the cheese! It turned out to be a modern building with a coffee shop inside and an array of Scottish 'tourist' goods for sale. It was rather busy (Easter Sunday) usually a good indication! We did not buy any food or drinks there so cannot comment on that. We did visit the viewing gallery where you can watch the cheese making process but unfortunately it was not operational that day. We were a little disappointed at the range of cheese on offer, although there were 3 cheeses made on the premises on offer. The staff were very friendly & helpful and there were cheese samples available to try before you buy! The cheese I bought was delicious and I would return there to try the food if I was in the area again although it looked a bit pricey!

“Mmmmm! delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

It just goes to show that being in the middle of nowhere doesn't stop people from finding you if your business is good enough.

We went on a pretty dull day, the sea had disappeared behind a gloom of mist, so we headed inland a little and found this lovely cheese farm. It's stylish, clean, full of delicious cheese and friendly staff serving delicious coffee and mouth watering scones made with their own Anster Cheddar. The place filled up around us with locals who clearly come regularly, which has to be a good sign.

Oh, and I do so agree with the slogan on the wall..... "age doesn't matter unless you are a cheese".

We bought cheese to take home for friends as well as for ourselves. Still enjoying it now along with the yummy chutney we bought there too.

“Say Cheese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Didn't mean to visit a cheese farm but it was wet, blowing a gale and we were both hungry and thirsty. We noticed the signs for 'cheese farm and coffee shop' and off we went. The farm road is very potholed. There are not many tables and because of the adverse weather we were able to get a table immediately. We chose the soup of the day - celery and apple - served with a dollop of anster grated cheese and a choice of sandwich or cheese scone. Absolutely delicious. The service was fast, the surroundings very clean, and the price reasonable. My partner went through to the viewing gallery which was interesting but cheese was not being made at the time. I busied myself browsing the deli and gift shop. Would definitely visit again

“A Fromaholics Delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were able to watch various stages of the cheese-making process and the owner and a helper both took the time to come and explain what was happening. The cheeses are excellent and we were able to sample varieties before deciding what to buy. The cafe and shop are very good, with a good selection of foodstuffs and items to buy. Well worth a visit.
