Cheese at Leadenhall

5 out of 5 stars
(1user review)

A fancy cheese and wine shop in a fancy part of town. Set inside the historic Leadenhall Market, you can't miss the shopfront, which has the word 'CHEESE' printed across it and a few tables and chairs outside. There's also seating inside, because as well as a shop, Cheese at Leadenhall is a bar and restaurant. Order some olives, charcuterie or salad with your cheese and seek the staff's knowledgable advice on which aromatic white to pair it with or perhaps a sweet port. 

It's worth noting that, due to its City location, Cheese is only open on week days and closed at the weekends.

Cheese at Leadenhall says
Cheese at Leadenhall pioneered the concept of combining a Cheese Shop and Wine Bar in 2005; it's now established as one of the City of London's 'must stop' destinations.

Close to Monument and nestling within the beautiful, historic, 'Harry Potter famed' Leadenhall Market, Cheese is the best place to sit down with friends, family or colleagues whilst savouring a menu of seasonally inspired lunchtime dishes from the Restaurant and some incredible, quality wines or vintage Ports from the Bar.

Cheese holds an exquiste selection of over one hundred artisan British and European cheeses; you can even try before you buy. You definitely won't find your average cheese toastie here; it's a Croque Madame with a little sprinkle of Cheese magic.

Definitely a place for occasions 'Cheese at Leadenhall' serves fantastic cheesy treats along with mouth watering wines and is in the middle of the lovely Leadenhall market. I went here for my mums birthday and we all shared a cheese board which included the best gorgonzola I've ever tried along with aged comte and tongue tantalizing taleggio. I had white wine which matched everything perfectly and my mum had sherry. I can't say this place is cheap but if you have the cash it is definitely worth splashing out for. 

Additionally the woman who owns Cheese was incredibly friendly and attentive to my gluten free needs. It seemed like the most normal thing for them to have gluten free crackers which made me feel at ease and like anyone else in the restaurant. I have yet to go for dinner as they also serve larger plates which look super tasty and are definitely on my bucket list if I don't fill up on cheese next time I go. However there is a way around this as you can buy the cheeses to take home- so you can get the best of both worlds. 100% one of my best restaurant experiences and if like me you love cheese then this is certainly the place for you.
