Baron Bigod Brie (Bungay )2.00 - Made by hand in small batches, very early in the 
morning so that the raw milk still warm, straight from the cow at the perfect 
temperature for cheese making. The mould cultures are added to the warm morning’s 
milk and it is gently gravity fed into small vats just a few metres from the milking
parlour, where the rennet is added. The curds are carefully hand-ladled into
 large moulds, using traditional pelle-a-brie ladles and the young cheeses are 
hand salted and then aged for up to 8 weeks in a cave-like environment.

Lincolnshire Poacher (Lincolnshire)2.00- An award winning handmade cheese with a smooth, 
silky texture.This cheese has been taste selected and matured on for 18 to 22 months.

from Holstein Friesian & Swiss Brown cows which graze near Wells-Next-The-Sea. The interior
 is pale yellow, with grey-blue specks. It has a creamy texture and a tasty and luxurious 
flavour which is not overwhelming, but full of character. It is more like Gorgonzola than Stilton.

Hereford Hop (Herefordshire) 2.00- A firm, creamy style cheese with a citrusy, buttery flavour
 thanks to a toasted hop coating. Produced on the Hunts Court Farm which is a few miles 
away from the Herefordshire border.The hard cheese is made using natural rennet and full
