This shop is located overlooking the village duck pond. Clean and smart shop with very good range of cheese, helpful staff. This is a speciality shop which is an important part of this very attractive village. Well worth visiting.

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and a good selection of some not so familiar cheeses and other nibbles. Well worth a visit.
