Stamford Cheese Cellar
Established in 2010, this town centre cellar stocks an exceptional range of artisan produce. It showcases some 200 cheeses and if there’s an artisan cheese it doesn’t sell, the team will do their best to get it for you. Customers come back not just for the range, but for the time, advice and insider information.
“We visit as many of our suppliers as we can,” says shop manager Suzie. “We meet the farmers, we meet the animals! We’ve got the knowledge and our customers appreciate that.”
There’s a job to be done in raising awareness of just what an artisan cheese is and what makes it different, so the Stamford Cheese Cellar organises regular cheese talks. These 40-minute talks focus on the development of artisan cheeses, how best to keep and serve them, plus a few tips on wine and beer matching.
Also very popular are cheeses for weddings, especially platters for evening guests. Staff will hold tasting sessions with the bride and groom and offer plenty of advice. The shop can also help out with hampers, gifts, chutneys, patés and sells a popular range of colourful Spanish crockery.
