The Cheesemongers of the British Isles
Buying from independent shops like these fantastic cheesemongers is a great idea in the current situation. Here is why:
Cheese is good for you and it makes you happy!
Shorter lead times and smaller queues for online ordering.
Many cheesemongers and delis offer other groceries.
We need to support our cheesemongers and cheesemakers now more than ever! They are our national treasures!
Below is a list of shops all over the UK and Ireland with the services they are offering.
Cheesemakers all around the U.K. and Ireland have started selling direct to the public. Please consider buying from them too! They come after the list of cheesemongers in each region or country of the British Isles.
I have divided the services people are offering into three categories:
Collection: Call or order online for pick up at the shop. NB: Please check how the shop wants orders to be placed. They are busy!
Delivery: Local deliveries
Mail order: Courier deliveries around the U.K. and Ireland.
These details are correct as of 4/5/20.
I will update this list once a week. Please get in touch if you want to be on it, recommend a shop or cheesemaker, or if details are incorrect.
Update 4/5/20: At the moment this list doesn't work as well on mobiles and tablets. All the info is there but the geography is a bit screwy. Many apologies, we are working on it! In the meantime, if you don't have access to a lap or desktop, get in touch and I'll send you the list as a doc.
Stay well and eat cheese!
