The food here is great (GREAT!!!!!), and the surrounds are gorgeous. Having visited twice now, I do get the distinct feeling that the staff would happily just deal with cheese, and not people, if they could. Their passion for the food they make and sell is clear, but it's also clear that selling it and dealing with people is just... More

A very bad customer experience unfortunately for a lovely place. We waited over on hour for our pizza because the staff had FORGOT our order. They didn't confess to this (which was pretty obvious) and were not even apologetic. A simple sorry would have been good. Other places with decent customer service probably would have provided something complementary . The... More

Visited Bruny Island on Anzac Day and had previously heard tales about this place that makes pretty good artisan cheese. Located on Bruny Island Main Road in Great Bay it was easy to find. Better yet, it was opening from 12:30pm despite being a public holiday! After killing time at the Neck, we rushed back to Great Bay and arrived... More

As must visit and would highly recommend you get the cheese tasting platter and the ale paddle sampler. The go hand in hand and a pamphlet describes the ales and the recommended cheese to accompany the beer. Excellent

There were 3 cheeses to taste from and they were very good. If you are keen, you can actually buy some cheese there! It's definitely worth a visit!

There are lots of people wanting to come here - and there's no real reason not to - it's just not QUITE as wonderful as you think it's going to be. Cheese is good - but try to avoid a crowd if you can as the tasting area is small. The beer paddle was fun, good value and a great... More

Being a couple of cheese-o-philes - if there is such a word - if not there should be, and all cheeseophiles should make this a stop on their bucket list. The $5 cheese platter was delicious and tempting. ($5 off your purchase)The boutique beer -available in tasting trays - we tried the pale ale - it was fruity with a... More

Having been a cheese lover for most of my life and fan of the Gourmet Farmer, I had some background knowledge about the Bruny Island Cheese Co. so I was really looking forward to my visit. From the moment you park the car, and walk towards the building you get the sense that there's been a lot of attention to... More

This was by far my favourite place on the island - great cheese and beers with explanation cards, superb service and nice outdoor area with heaters. Do it!
