Passionate to preserve and protect this world famous cheese, John and Katherine Spencer and their exceptional team continue the tradition of hand-making unpasteurised cheddar cheese which they long-mature in cloth, the traditional way. With a small Visitor Centre and remarkable shop situated in the beautiful Cheddar Gorge itself, they welcome you to watch them make it, learn a little more about this heritage cheese and, of course, taste it!

For the true taste of cheddar this is the place to come. Great varieties to try, if you like cheddar that almost burns your mouth, then try the vintage, It's great. Very friendly staff, but the cheese is expensive.

Great idea allowing visitors to view the cheese making process and sample cheese. We ended up buying three cheeses which we are enjoying on our travels.
