Canterbury is now extremely quiet, save for a few walkers taking exercise.    You are of course, allowed out for exercise and also to buy food.  Please combine the two, with a walk and some cheese buying, if you get the opportunity. 

Please keep The Cheese Shop in mind for cheese of any kind from a lovely specialist treat, to a very tasty cheese-on-toast style cheddar!     Also fresh baked bread (Saturdays) and fantastic farm fresh eggs.  

During the lockdown period I am happy to deliver locally, or post for further afield. 

Wine and pickles and olives also available.

Take away Italian (excellent) coffee with delicious home made baked sublime cheesecake.   

Open Monday to Wednesday 10 til 4; Thursday to Saturday 10 til 6; closed Sunday.

One person in the shop at a time; full length screen in place;  please wear a mask.  Thank you!

Best wishes.




The lockdown takes us back to March 2020.  Canterbury will be extremely quiet, but for a few walkers taking a bit of exercise.      I will be open because as a food shop I can be.   Please come to see me for cheese of any kind – a treat, or a basic cheese on toast cheese.  And also eggs, and bread on a Saturday.   Its going to be pretty lonely in January down Palace Street with all the shops closed around me, so please don’t forget The Cheese Shop – even just for a coffee (and a bit of cheesecake).

I’m also happy to deliver locally, or post a gift of cheese to friends or family.

I hope to see you. – I’m relying on you 🙂

Best wishes.




will remain open and will adhere to social distancing in both our Cheese Shop and the Pop Up Shop opposite, which we have opened to allow for social distancing over the pre-Christmas period.

However you find yourself spending Christmas, we hope you will have the opportunity to enjoy some of our tasty cheese.    

Open 10 til 6 Mon to Saturday.

Best wishes, Julie
