I had a great bowl of winter vegetable soup at a reasonable price and the coffee was good too. I refrained from the delicious looking cakes only because I'm trying to lose some weight but others were enjoying them! The outside temperature in Bath was around zero centigrade today and unfortunately I was sitting in this very busy, and obviously... More

The restaurant seems a café at first sight, however, there is plenty of space if you walk in there. It also has a lovely terrace, for those who enjoy staying outside. Menu is mainly composed of sandwiches, ciabatas, salads and pastries / cakes but which is highly recommendable is the daily's menu. Nice and different dishes where the strong italian-french... More

Lovely tearoom attached to cheese shop. The cakes are to die for, Service good, staff friendly. We had the orange cake and apple crumble cake, which we're excellent, so much so we returned the next day.

Found this lovely licensed cafe when we vistited the Saturday flea market opposite. Good service, great food and several wines by the glass. Worth a trip!

Went for a coffee and brunch with friends. We had excellent service and a great breakfast sandwich. The cheeses in the main shop are amazing. The variety of dishes were well thought out both for breakfast and lunch. They all use good quality products. A great place to eat

When I reviewed the cafe nearly 4 years ago new management had destroyed what had been our favourite bolt hole for coffee/lunch in Bath. We have returned regularly over the last year or so and the new team seem to have sorted the issues of cleanliness, friendliness and service. Coffee is great and the selection of sandwiches spot on. Specials... More

We had a lovely cup of tea with slice of passion cake and a bakewell slice. Service was good, the cakes were tasty. We then purchased some cheeses and received an expert service in helping us choose a cheddar and a blue cheese. There is a vast selection of cheeses and they even do a mail order service. Highly recommended.

Stopped in for a light lunch. We were warmly received and seated quickly. Hopes rose but were soon dashed. Service was slow (I've a feeling we were temporarily forgotten about). The hot food when it finally arrived was OK, freshly prepared but cold. It wasn't busy so should have been better as there seemed to be several members of staff... More

OK I admit it - I have walked by this cool looking Deli with great frequency and always admired there stunning selection of foods and breads but had never gone it. What was I thinking of? I decided to stop off yesterday for coffee and a snack and was just blown away by the food, the ambience and the friendly... More

Description
TWO SHOPS IN ONE We have a 'cheese shop' with a range of delicious treats, and a café with our own chefs. Our 'cheese shop' groans with artisan cheeses, and great food and wine, some of which you can't buy anywhere else. Our own chefs make everything from scratch - from flaky pastry sausage rolls to chewy pistachio macaroons. We will prepare you a cheese plate from what is in season. Why not graze as you browse?. You may shop in the 'cheese shop' for Keen's Cheddar, our own onion chutney, farmhouse butter and Hobbs House bread, or have them made for you into a sandwich, served with a cappuccino or a glass of wine. OUR STREET FOOD On nights where you simply don't have time to cook, let The Fine Cheese Co. prepare you a feast. Drop into our Walcot Street shop and pick up a delicious, homemade meal a for fuss-free dinner. Alternatively, when those hunger pangs hit at lunch time, grab something from our range to eat al-desko, or alfresco if you are lucky enough! Our chefs Laurent, Julian and Tess have created a Street Food Menu that will change twice a month. The menu includes three dishes that work together perfectly as well as on their own, and a selection of freshly baked pastries, tarts as well as our daily Spanish Tortilla.
