The close-textured Bosworth Ash Log, with gentle balance working up to slight piquant notes; Winslade, wrapped in a lath of spruce, is lusciously creamy with light woody aromas; Single Gloucester, with its springy texture & delicate fruitiness, is especially moreish; Stinking Bishop, named for a pear of the same name, is deeply aromatic but relatively mild; Stichelton, essentially an unpasteurised Stilton, is rich and biscuity with a finish almost like seared bacon.

100% Local Pears – Plant de Blanc, Fausset, Branche, Gros Gontier. In the heart of the Pays d'Auge – the area also known for Camembert & Pont l'Eveque – this sparkling pear cider uses only local pears and has a vibrancy with a dry zesty finish.
Terre Rouges 2016
Jean-Francois Quenard, Le Villard, Chignin, Savoie
100% Mondeuse. Often seen as a rather brooding wine in the style of Heathcliff rather than Mr Darcy. The grape has a lovely dark plum hue with red fruits such as raspberry and cherry. Warm spice notes include black peppercorn with tannins that are rustic and a little wild. Good with spiced meats and vegetable dishes, medium mature Reblochon and also Abondance.
Casan, Midi-Pyrénées, SW France
A coarse-textured small salame typical of the region. Fruity, peppery and chewy, with earthy undertones of the maturing caves.
Quince paste, slow-cooked to become concentrated, similar to a coarse-textured jelly. Serve with hard ewe's milk cheeses, fresh or aged goat's or blues.
150g. Made by English Preserves in South London.
A rich dense paste, perfect for pairing with cheese. Made by English Preserves from locally sourced fruit, there is a delicate acidity that marries naturally to a range of cheese.
From Sacchi Tartufi in Marche, Italy.
Acacia honey with chopped white truffles. Perfect with a range of cheeses – from creamy goats to spicier and more complex aged cheeses.
Throughout the year our kitchen brings down from the shop floor the loveliest seasonal ingredients and makes jams, marmalades & chutneys to last us through the colder months. Made in small batches, the ingredients change frequently throughout the year to ensure the freshest produce goes into our chutneys. Gorgeous alongside a cheese board but perhaps best on a simple sandwich with a slice of farmhouse cheddar!
