We have a new Cheese and Charcuterie menu for this week with some very exciting cheeses from Hamish Johnston Cheese Shop on Northcote Road.

1. Lincolnshire Poacher Cheddar.
Award winning hand-made cheddar from the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Matured for 12-24 months giving a distinctive fruity, nutty taste with a sweet, clean finish.

2. Sainte-Maure De Touraine. (unpasteurised, Goat)

Great News!

We have finally finished our renovations. We are now serving wines by the glass to be enjoyed in-store
with artisan cheese & charcuterie.
You can also pick any bottle of wine off the shelf to drink on the premises for a standard £9.00 corkage.

We had a brilliant time choosing our cheeses, and have a great line up of French and British Cheese, accompanied with fresh speciality breads & fig relish.

Charcuterie is by Curious Foods, a great producer crafting delicious cured meats using local rare breed pigs & cattle in Oxfordshire.
