“Cheddar From Cheddar Is A Must!”

The Original Cheddar Cheese Company
Ranked #3 of 7 Shopping in Cheddar
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 February 2018

Not being a massive fan of cheese I wasn't too fussed about visiting the Cheesy part of Cheddar but after walking around Goughs cave and hearing about the history of the cheese in the area we felt we had to try some so visited The Original Cheddar Cheese Company to buy a few souvenirs for family.
Lovely little shop with a wide variety of cheddar and we had to buy some cave matured cheddar for ourselves which was surprisingly tasty.
This quaint little town has given this cheese it's name and when you have heard the local history, sampling some of it's greatest produce is must!

My trip to Cheddar was disappointing as the whole area was spoilt by the tourism for what is a natural geographical feature. However, buying Cheddar cheese in Cheddar from a Cheddar cheese producer was cool and I was happy to try the different cheese before buying

Further down in the more real village things were nicer

We visited early in April 2017 - had a great day out in the village and in the gorge itself. We bought cheeses as a gift for the various family members - all said it was lovely cheese.

Don't buy cheese from this place, it's perhaps the poorest quality Cheddar I have ever experienced. Go to your local supermarket.

Bit of a trek to get there although driving through the gorge was impressive! The little village itself is quaint but given the time of year the only thing open was the cheese shop. The cave matured and vintage were my favourites and so were the geese straws.
