Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A real treasure trove of a place, with not just unusual cheeses but interesting gifts and other foodie delicacies. We spent ages browsing and then enjoyed a cheese platter out on the front deck

It’s been a few years since I’ve visited the shop and the quality of cheese is not very good anymore. The cheese we purchased didn’t taste fresh. Then the packet of olives we got were meant to be feta but we kept getting garlic ones. I feel the shop has been commercialised and lost it’s boutique charm and quality unfortunately.

Quick lunch stop while driving through the Hunter Valley. Lovely grounds, outdoor seating available. Food reasonably priced and quick. Nothing fancy.

My wife and I, being locals, went in for a cup of coffee. It was always on the expensive side but, since we are locals, the 10 percent locals’ discount made it affordable. On ordering and mentioning that we were locals, I was immediately put in my place. “No locals’ discount since Covid.” Mmmmmmmm. I saw another customer getting a 10 percent discount.

I am not a cheese lover but still found lots to love in this shop. Came out with some locally-made jams, chutney and honey as well as snacks. Topped off with a yummy gelato. Sat at a table in the sun to enjoy the fresh air and open space outside.

Fabulous little shop with some amazing cheeses & other delicious nibblies. We stopped in for a quick browse, planning to come back the next day to pick up some goodies but, after tasting a few cheeses & seeing the beautiful freshly baked French bread on display, walked out with a cheese platter, bread & assorted other goodies.
The ladies helping us out were so lovely & pointed us to the best products. If you love cheese, this place is a must visit. Heaven!!!

Cheese shop - enough said! Great range, pricing and everything we had was delicious. Staff were very friendly and more than ready to answer any questions you may have.

Quite small but packed with cheese options and had a nice ice cream bar. We visited multiple times during our fortnight stay in Hunter Valley to stock up on cheese and bribe the kids with ice cream between wine tastings.

If you love cheese and are in the Hunter you need to visit the Smelly Cheese Shop.

The store has an amazing range of cheese. Whether you like blue cheese, soft cheese or a harder cheese you will find something at this store. You also won't get bored since they have so many different flavours available as well. You can also grab a quick bite to eat in the store too which is nice if you nip in around lunchtime.

Best of all, cheese isn't the only thing they do. You can also get gelato, lollies, crackers and spreads. Really a one-stop-shop for a charcuterie board as well.

Also, if you're vegan or dairy intolerant they have some non-dairy cheeses too so it can be fun for every member of your group.

The only downside I could see was that while you did need to sign in due to COVID restrictions the store did get quite packed and squishy and only two people can go into the fridge at a time.

To avoid crowds I would suggest visiting either in the morning or later afternoon.
