Leeds Blue
Made by Mario Olianas in Adel, near Leeds, West Yorkshire. Mario Olianas moved to Yorkshire from Italy in 2001. Hailing from a budding family of Italian gourmets and cheese-makers, Mario uses sheep’s milk from Harrogate to create this smooth, rich and creamy Leeds Blue.

Highmoor is a supple washed rind cheese, not dissimilar to the classic French cheeses of Livarot and Pont L’Eveque. Washed to encourage the ruby-red rind it has savoury, meaty flavours and a supple, giving texture. Made by Rose Grimond & Team, near Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire, England.

Marion Roeleweld left Holland for the ‘good-life’ in Galway, Ireland and now makes this Gouda-style cheese with her own goats’ milk; sweet, floral and supple.

One of Britain’s most outstanding goats’ milk cheeses. At The Courtyard Dairy, Dorstone is sold at only three weeks old – at that stage Dorstone still has a mousse-like texture, a lemony-fresh flavour and just a hint of goat. Dorstone is also made in Uganda! Cheesemaker Charlie Westhead’s son Conan worked as a volunteer in a children’s disabled foundation over there. Here he helped to establish a goat farm to raise funds for the project and taught them how to make cheese the way he knows!

St James
Made by Nicola and Martin Gott, in Cartmel, Cumbria. An unusual find: a washed-rind sheep’s cheese. The flavoursome milk of the Lacaune breed of sheep produces an incredible cheese as St James breaks down, varying from soft with a savoury, meaty flavours to firmer with a creamy, rich sweetness.

Old Winchester
Made by Mike and Judie Smales Landford Wiltshire. Needing an outlet for their milk, Mike and Judie developed Old Winchester. This Gouda-style cheese aged for 18 months; caramelised, smoky and with crystalline crunches.

Sparkenhoe Vintage
The only unpasteurised farmhouse red Leicester made in the world.
This version of Sparkenhoe red Leicester is the vintage profile; aged for 18 months, which gives it a strong, powerful flavour. Made by Jo and David Clarke in Market Bosworth, Leicestershire, England.

Hafod Cheddar
Made from a small farm with only 65 Ayrshire cows. Hafod is a clothbound Cheddar from a very traditional recipe, this produces a cheese that is buttery and smooth, with that special Cheddar tang.

An English Camembert good enough to make a Frenchman weep: vegetal,
porcini flavoured and intense.

Cote Hill Blue
With the milk price falling the Davenports took a short course in cheese making and invented Britain’s first unpasteurised soft, rich creamy blue.

In choosing our Port we have chosen well. Ramos Pinto was founded in 1880 by Adriano Ramos-Pinto, a dynamic port house in the hostile climate of the Upper Douro Valley, where due to the steepness of vineyards everything has to be done by hand. Yields are low but concentration is high! All priced for a 50ml glass.

White (19.5%) £4.95
A sweeter styled white port – great with cheese or on its own.

Vintage Character Collector (19.5%) £4.95
Full fruited, rich and lots of flavour.

Late Bottled Vintage (19.5%) £5.10
From a single vintage and with quite a bit of wood ageing!

10 year Old Tawny (20%) £5.50
The Jewel in the Ramos crown – this is unbelievable on its own, with cheese or with chocolate
