Exceptional cheeses need accompaniments that will complement their individual flavours. We’ve taken great care to select products that pair perfectly with the cheeses we sell. Remember, if you would like any advice or recommendations for planning a cheeseboard, we’re always happy to help.
If you’re looking for crackers, crispbreads and oatcakes that won’t compete with subtle delicate cheeses, you’ll find the crispiest handbaked choices here. If you like to contrast silky soft cheeses with sweet flavours and palate-pleasing textures, why not try some delicious artisan fruit and nut studded toasts?
We stock outstanding chutneys and preserves. Make sure you try Eastgate Larder’s medlar cheese, produced from locally grown medlars. We’re also very proud of our very own award-winning chilli jam, made in our Aldeburgh kitchen.
Beyond the cheeseboard we have flavoursome provisions to enjoy alongside cheese for lunch or pre-dinner nibbles. Create a classic ploughman's spread with Westcombe Cheddar, fig chutney and a meaty pork pie from Norfolk's Bray's Cottage. Or tempt your tastebuds with thinly sliced Manchego accompanied by authentic Spanish charcuterie and mouth-watering olives smoked locally here in Suffolk.
These Swedish style sourdough crispbreads (or knäckebröd) are the perfect partner for any cheese. We love to slather them with soft cheese or top them with a crumbly blue. Created by Peter Ljungqvist, Peter’s Yard sourdough crispbreads started out in a Skånegård bakery deep in the Swedish countryside. Now baked here in the UK, the team faithfully follow the original Swedish recipe. Their sourdough is fed daily and allowed to ferment for 16 hours before each batch is baked. Read more

'Fife Cut' refers to the classic triangular shape used by generations of Fife bakers, whose methods and recipes they faithfully uphold. Add a slice of cheese and some chutney for a truly satisfying snack. Read more
