Welcome to The Cheese Delicatessen, Keswick, Cumbria

Here in the beautiful county of Cumbria with its farming heritage there has been a long tradition of hand making cheese on the farms.

At the cheese deli we believe that Cumbria has so many fantastic cheeses to choose from, that we specialize in stocking Cumbrian made cheeses. We have an extensive range from local cheese makers at Thornby Moor Farm at Wigton, Award winning Appleby Creamery in The Eden Valley and The Lake District Cheese Company from Aspatria.

Our range then includes artisan cheeses made in Lancashire, including Butlers Farm (makers of Blengdale Blue and Cobble Tasty), and Sandham's (makers of the ever popular organic range Kendal Creamy and Kendal Crumbly). From Yorkshire we have an extensive range of cheeses from The Hawes Wensleydale Creamery, including their fantastic Jervaulx Blue and a new hot and spicy Chantico.

We also have a selected few choosen from around the UK including the excellent Colston Bassett Blue Stilton and Garlic Yarg. Our specialized International cheeses include an excellent Parmesan Reggiano, Peccorino, Manchego and French raclette, perfect for the Andrew James raclette machines which we have in stock.

Our whole range of well over 90 cheeses covers both pasteurised and unpasteurised, cow's milk and the increasingly popular range of ewes and goats milk cheeses, especially popular with allergy sufferers.

To compliment our cheeses we also stock a variety of local cooked and cured meats, Olives, chutneys, crackers and specialized gifts.

Our shop maybe small but, we are bursting at the seams with a huge array of local and British products to choose from. This enables us to give our customers a unique and enjoyable shopping experience with the personal touch.
