Welcome to The Cheese Shop Canterbury.   We have the most amazing hand made cheeses – lots of British as well as  some classic Continentals. 

Birthday or gift cheese boxes can be made up, and posted or delivered locally.

See more about our cheese.  We are mixing it up between hard, soft, the blues and regionals, and young lemony fresh next to fine crystallised vintages as sweet as a nut on the palate!   We are open for business (cheese, wine, pickles, crackers), with restrictions – see CV statement – and also offering free delivery.  

We have a selection of excellent wines.   See wine list and once restrictions are lifted we will resume the Tapas Bar (on a Thursday evening at 6 p.m.) which provides an informal setting for a glass of wine and a tasty piece of cheese.

We also do celebration cheese cakes, condiments, cheese accessories and lots of lovely things!




If you would like to order cheese for next day delivery please see Our Cheese and order via the Contact Us form.



During this difficult period, The Cheese Shop is OPEN (see The Cheese Shop Coronavirus Statement), and is also offering free local delivery or Gift Cheese posting. Please email via the contact form.


Based in the trendy bit of Canterbury on the Kings Mile, we aim to give you the experience of cheese tasting within a working environment; with great chats and good company, enjoying this very special hand made produce.  You can buy to take home, have a nicely boxed gift, or enjoy in the Cheese Bar at the back of the shop, with local wine, ale, pickle or home made cheesecake and coffee.  We hope to see you soon!




Brand Vision

Simplicity, wholesomeness and quality. My goal is to build a Cheese Shop which surpasses the expectation of a small outlet part way along a hippy-style street in Canterbury; and which delivers delicious product, presented well, and providing customers friends and families, with true pleasure.   If I can achieve that, I will be happy!

Cheese Aging

Different cheese types need different environments.  A cheddar would benefit from cool humidity.   Winterdale Shaw, a traditionally made cloth-bound cheddar, is matured in caves providing the perfect moisture content in the environment, to provide a cheese also left with the right moisture content whilst being full of flavour! Whereas, a washed rind cheese, like …


Situated in the King’s Mile area of Canterbury, our small shop close to the top of Palace Street, is easily missed, so be sure to follow your nose!  Mmmm.
