About us

The Cheese Bar is dedicated to celebrating the best of British cheese. We’ve got no time for mass produced cheese, made for money over love.

Pick & Cheese is our latest concept – over 25 different British-made cheeses with individual pairings, served on a conveyor belt, right to your table. It’s the cheese and wine bar, re imagined.

We work closely with our producers, sourcing all our cheese direct from UK-based farms and urban cheesemakers.

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.

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