Welcome to The Cheese Shop Canterbury.   We have the most amazing hand made cheeses – lots of British as well as  some Continentals which we just couldn’t do without.

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 passionate about the cheese tasting and learning experience, so please join us for cheese tapas and maybe a glass of something to wash it down, once restrictions are lifted.

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