World’s Best Cheeses
(Individual portions/whole served with crackers)
Taleggio comes from the hills surrounding Bergamo. The texture is creamy, with a rich, melting quality that is not too salty, but has a lovely sappy floral flavour. In aged versions the rind develops a slight grit and the pate becomes almost runny, with a satisfying fresh-baked-bread depth – marrying well with either sweet date paste or tangy pickles.
An unusual cooked whey cheese made from a mixture of goat’s milk and cow’s cream with a distinctively sweet caramel flavour. It’s like cheesy toffee – fun, fun, fun!
Brie de Normandie £5
Coming from a region famous for its camembert, our brie is covered in a fine, bloomy rind which gives way to a sensational pale yellow interior. The texture is supple and creamy. The rind has mild mushroom aromas which are well balanced with delicate flavour of the paste. Superb!
Charcoal Cheese (1-2 persons) £4/£10
200g whole – The first and only ALL-BLACK CHEDDAR CHEESE. A deliciously creamy, mature cheddar blended with real charcoal, this cheese is nice and smooth. The Winner of the Best New Idea 2014, Charcoal Cheese is the talking point on any cheese board.
Vintage Gouda Brokkel £6
Brokkel is a 4 year old farmhouse Aged Gouda. The cheese is very crumbly and hard with a sweet nutty flavour that has extra depth, with cognac and coffee notes lingering on the palate. Pair with red wines or whisky.
Parmigiano Reggianno £7
Our Parmesan is aged for a full 36 months which means a deeper, golden colour and even more crunchy crystals. Full and fruity with a slightly salty tang, this cheese pairs great with everything. Served with Modena balsamic glaze.
Isle of Mull Cheddar £4
Extra mature Scottish cheddar, with a pale ivory colour and a sharp, fruity tang. It gets its complex flavour thanks to the unusual diet of the cows that eat the fermented grain from the nearby Tobermory whisky distillery.
Roquefort Vieux Berger £6
The King of all blue cheeses. The heavenly richness of the ewes’ milk combines with the salty intensity of the blue veins, resulting in an explosion of flavour in the mouth. Vieux Berger is the smallest producer of Roquefort and they make an exquisitely creamy blue cheese. Pairs best with semi-sweet and sweet wines.
Stilton Colston Bassett £5
With a well-marbled texture, this blue cheese uses traditional rennet, producing a nuttier, biscuity edge, with rounder, more savoury flavours – before the veins impart that delightful spicy blue tang. Brittish Champion Blue!
