In our proprietor,
Simon, we have a wealth of experience in selecting, sourcing,
storing and serving the best of English and Continental cheeses to
both the general public and to the trade. Our staff are all
knowledgeable in the field of cheese and will be happy to advise
We are conveniently placed in North Derbyshire, adjacent to the Peak District National Park and within easy reach of Sheffield and the rest of South Yorkshire. If you have the opportunity, why not visit our wonderful market town of Chesterfield, the extensive open market and the refurbished Market Hall.
Of course, no such visit can be complete without walking into our shop,taking in the aromas, viewing the marvellous extensive selection of cheeses, and perhaps even purchasing some to enjoy with your family and friends. "Don't quibble, ask for a nibble", prior to making your choice. If you're local, consider coming to one of our Cheese Tasting Evenings or invite Simon to give your group a talk.
We have released our 2023 general Cheeseboard leaflets. The printed version is available in our shop.
From our Market Hall shop, as well as cheese, we also sell fresh bread, sandwiches, pork pies, pastries and our ever popular locally made oatcakes.
Our Christmas 2023 leaflet is now available to download here. Paper copies will
be in the shop from 29th November.
