Have frequented the Fine Cheese Cmpany shop for many years. Always first class, and now the enlarged Cafe/Restaurant continues in the same way. Organic, vegetarians catered for, delicious soups, sandwiches and light lunches.

Was recommended this place. They sell cheese, local and French but also have a very good cafe. We did not book but got a table for an early lunch. We had homemade cauliflower soup and cheese and onion tarts, and we were offered half portion of soup as we were having two courses. This was a good idea as the... More

Very sweet little cafe adjoining to the cheese shop. A friend and I went for brunch whilst we were in Bath for the day. I had mushrooms on toast which was delicious, and my friend had granola and yogurt, which she said was great. Staff were really friendly. Wasn't too expensive. Will be back for the cheese platter, looked amazing!

When you walk in there is a great smell and the staff are very helpful. There is a small cafe at the back of the shop too!

I enjoy greatly to discover little corners in the city that have character and are great in what they do. The Fine Cheese Co. is one of these places. The food and coffee is great and the staff polite and helpful. Their deli is not short of amazing either. However in a cold winter morning the temperature in the room... More

I had a great bowl of winter vegetable soup at a reasonable price and the coffee was good too. I refrained from the delicious looking cakes only because I'm trying to lose some weight but others were enjoying them! The outside temperature in Bath was around zero centigrade today and unfortunately I was sitting in this very busy, and obviously... More

The restaurant seems a café at first sight, however, there is plenty of space if you walk in there. It also has a lovely terrace, for those who enjoy staying outside. Menu is mainly composed of sandwiches, ciabatas, salads and pastries / cakes but which is highly recommendable is the daily's menu. Nice and different dishes where the strong italian-french... More

Lovely tearoom attached to cheese shop. The cakes are to die for, Service good, staff friendly. We had the orange cake and apple crumble cake, which we're excellent, so much so we returned the next day.

TWO SHOPS IN ONE We have a 'cheese shop' with a range of delicious treats, and a café with our own chefs. Our 'cheese shop' groans with artisan cheeses, and great food and wine, some of which you can't buy anywhere else. Our own chefs make everything from scratch - from flaky pastry sausage rolls to chewy pistachio macaroons. We will prepare you a cheese plate from what is in season. Why not graze as you browse?. You may shop in the 'cheese shop' for Keen's Cheddar, our own onion chutney, farmhouse butter and Hobbs House bread, or have them made for you into a sandwich, served with a cappuccino or a glass of wine. OUR STREET FOOD On nights where you simply don't have time to cook, let The Fine Cheese Co. prepare you a feast. Drop into our Walcot Street shop and pick up a delicious, homemade meal a for fuss-free dinner. Alternatively, when those hunger pangs hit at lunch time, grab something from our range to eat al-desko, or alfresco if you are lucky enough! Our chefs Laurent, Julian and Tess have created a Street Food Menu that will change twice a month. The menu includes three dishes that work together perfectly as well as on their own, and a selection of freshly baked pastries, tarts as well as our daily Spanish Tortilla.
