About us

Mathew started The Cheese Truck in early 2014 to celebrate and promote all that is great about British cheese.

From humble beginnings at Maltby Street Market, to becoming a regular fixture on the UK festival circuit, we made a name for ourselves serving some of Britain’s best grilled cheese sandwiches from our iconic classic Bedford vans: Archie, Alfie & Audrey.

We’ve conquered the fields of Glastonbury, starred in Hollywood Movies and travelled as far as Istanbul and Dubai, selling half a million sandwiches & amassing a passionate following on our mission to rejuvenate British cheese.

In 2016, we decided it was time to make the jump to bricks and mortar. We reached our crowdfunding target in less than a week, and opened our flagship Camden restaurant the following year.

Camden has been our biggest challenge yet. We haven’t always got things right, but our small, dedicated team have managed to keep the doors open, seven days a week, for the past two years.

Our aim is to share our food with as many people as possible, whilst informally educating our customers on how great British produce can be.

The price of our dishes fairly reflect the quality of their ingredients, as well as the time and energy it’s taken to get them to your plate. That being said, we’ll always keep our food affordable and accessible.

We want everyone to embrace it, and be part of our British cheese revolution!
