Each month we offer Dinner Party Cheese Boards for those who can't make it in to The Cheese Room. Chosen by our cheesemongers, the selection includes five cheeses we feel are eating their absolute best. Different than the Gift Boxes, the boards are pared down to just cheese & biscuits, and are best suited for dinner parties of four to six guests.

Cheese arrives labelled with a box of our own label biscuits, a straw serving mat, tasting notes & care instructions.
