A thoroughly British shop with a traditional French attitude to cheese retailing in that, like an affineur, Neal’s Yard buys from small farms and creameries in Britain and Ireland, and matures the cheeses in its own cellars until they're ready to sell in peak condition. It’s best to walk in and ask what’s good today – you’ll be given various tasters by the well-trained staff. Also on sale are oat cakes, English apples (in season) and top-drawer books on cheese and other food. Around Christmas-time, the queue for stilton and Montgomery’s cheddar often runs down the street, so it's just as well the company also has a sizeable shop just off Borough Market.

Don't be fooled into thinking the best cheese in at Borough Market.. it's just behind it! Neal's yard is my all time favorite go to place for cheese. It offers a fantastic variety with the best personal service. The staff love to offer samples and advise and I learn something new everything time. Pricing is good too. This isn't just a shop, it is an experience to be enjoyed and loved and inspire you new flavours of cheese!
