When are you open?

Monday to Sunday  8.30am – 3pm

Do you need to book / can I reserve a table?
We do not take bookings / reservations at the Cheese Shed but if you are a large group (12 and over) it is always good to let us know that you are planning to visit us. Please either email or call us on 01491 642127 with any Cheese Shed enquiries.
Are your cheese toasties suitable if you're pregnant?
Having taken advice from our microbiological consultants and our Environmental Health Officer we can confirm that our toasties are safe to eat during pregnancy. The pathogens that can be harmful during pregnancy are largely not found in cheese made with pasteurised milk which our cheeses are. They do not survive cooking temperatures. If you are pregnant please let us know so that we can take a temperature probe reading of the toastie to double ensure the cheese is piping hot.
Do you have anything gluten-free?
We have Mrs Crimbles gluten free biscuits and cakes.
Do you have any dairy-free milk for the coffee?

At this time we only stock our own organic, unhomogenised cows’ milk. We do offer a range of cold drinks and herbal teas.

Are the cheeses suitable for vegetarians?

Our cheeses are made with traditional rennet which isn’t vegetarian.

Is The Cheese Shed accessible if you're in a wheelchair?

We have a disabled parking place as close to The Cheese Shed as possible.

It should be noted that we do have woodchip on the ground throughout or service space which is an uneven surface.

We do have a wheelchair-accessible toilet.

Please do ask for any assistance from our staff and do get in touch ahead of your visit if you would like any further provision or special assistance.

Are there toilets at The Cheese Shed?

We have temporary toilets at the moment while we work on an application for something improved in the future.

Can you park at The Cheese Shed?

We do have car parking at The Cheese Shed but:

  • Please do park carefully and considerately
  • Please do drive very slowly
  • Please note that the car park closes at 4pm and the gates to the premises will shut
Can I use the car park to go for a walk before visiting The Cheese Shed?

We kindly ask customers to only use the car park for the duration of their visit to The Cheese Shed, simply due to the limited parking we have on-site. We hope you understand.

Can we see the cows from The Cheese Shed?

No, the milking parlour is just over two miles away.

Are we dog friendly?
Yes, we love dogs. There are plenty of water bowls and also dog biscuits. We kindly ask that you keep your well-behaved dog on a lead and clean up any mess.
Are we horse friendly?

We most certainly are and if you would like us to serve you on your horse please just let a member of staff know.
