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.
Cheese and wine is a classic combination. The right choice in your wine glass can elevate exceptional cheeses to new deliciousness! In collaboration with the experts at Heritage Wines we are delighted to bring you a special collection of English wines, hand-picked to match the flavours and textures of artisan cheese. Add a bottle to your basket to create a decadent cheeseboard or treat friends and family to an indulgent gift.
