The Melton Cheeseboard

Specialising in Stilton and local cheeses, but stocking more than 140 varieties, The Melton Cheeseboard is a traditional cheesemonger in Melton Mowbray.

Friendly husband and wife team Tim and Lyn Brown, assisted by other family members, really know their Keen’s from their Godminster (or their Cropwell Bishop from their Long Clawson) and love nothing more than talking cheese with customers! They’re always happy to provide tasters and advice.

The Melton Cheeseboard is committed to supporting local producers and each cheese displays its own food miles on a label. Its policy is to source cheeses directly from the dairies, including the complete Long Clawson range, Cropwell Bishop Stilton, Lincolnshire Poacher, Godminster Organic Vintage Cheddar, Cobblers Nibble from Northampton, Shorrocks Lancashire and Sparkenhoe Farm Leicester. By buying directly the shop can guarantee the provenance of the products as well as minimise food miles.

The shop is an Aladdin’s Cave of other foods too, many locally produced. These include Belvoir Brewery beers, Melton Sloe Gin, Leeson’s Pork Pies, Manor Farm Yogurts (Thrussington) and Hambleton Bakery Bread (Northamptonshire).

The Melton Cheeseboard also produces spectacular wedding cheese cakes.

Member offer:

15% discount on the normal price with the exception of the month of December. Members must present their Great Food Club card in The Melton Cheeseboard shop before making their purchase. If buying over the telephone (01664 562257), you must quote your name and membership number.

  5. Deb says:
    Chees-ily my favourite Melton StoreAbsolutely love the Cheeseboard - friendly and welcoming staff, a fantastic array of all things cheese related (crackers, chutneys and, of course, cheese) and a great selection of Hambleton Bakery products. The best part is, if you want to try something new, they can recommend cheeses based on your preferences, current selection or their experience, and then you can sample before you buy. The biggest problem with the shop is knowing which cheeses to take home! It just means you'll have to keep going back for more.
