Cheeses At The Melton Cheeseboard
We have the widest range of cheeses in the county with over 150 different varieties. Many of them are sourced in Leicestershire and the surrounding counties, as well as the best from the UK and a wide variety of continental cheese. We do not offer an online shopping service as we have found that many of our customers wish to discuss their order with a human being! We would also like to ensure that you get the cheeses you want, so please contact us at the shop for a personal service. You can pay by credit/debit card over the telephone when the order is made. For further information see our Terms and Conditions below.
Because of our commitment to local food producers, it is our policy to buy as many of our cheeses directly from the creameries, including a wide range from Long Clawson Dairy; Blue Stilton from Cropwell Bishop Creamery; Lincolnshire Poacher from F W Read & Sons; and Sparkenhoe Leicester and Bosworth Field from the Leicestershire Handmade Cheese Company. By buying directly from the cheesemakers we can guarantee the provenance of our products as well as minimising food miles.

Terms & Conditions
Products will be charged at the prices prevailing on the day of despatch. All weights are approximate, this is because your cheese will be cut from larger pieces and this process cannot be an exact science. Some cheeses are seasonal in their production and we may have to alter prices or offer a substitute. We will contact you in this event with an alternative suggestion to ensure your satisfaction.
If you have any concerns about the condition of your products on receipt, please notify us within 24 hours so that we can remedy the situation. Please ensure that we have the correct postcode for the despatch address, if this information is incorrect or missing it will delay the delivery of the service for which we cannot be held responsible. Please place your order for delivery in good time if the cheeses are required for a particular date or function.
We are happy to supply larger quantities of cheese for functions, parties, weddings and wine tastings etc. Please call for advice and details. Our range of cheeses makes excellent private and corporate gifts. We can tailor cheese selections to your own specifications.
