Surrounded by miles of lush green grass, some of the best cheeses are crafted in this pocket of England, by people who really know a few things about cheese. Wherever possible we use the best quality local ingredients with a great deal coming from Somerset and the surrounding counties, giving you the best tasting cheese to enjoy time and time again.
  • Make up little bruschettas with layers of sundried tomatoes, smoked turkey and Applewood® Cheese then grill.
  • Grate over pasta or even a baked potato for a lovely smoky cheesy taste.
It is made using a traditional hand-turned farmhouse Cheddar, with a delicate smoky flavour and a lovely smooth texture, all finished with a dusting of paprika for good measure...

Applewood® Cheese
is a best-seller and is enjoyed by many around the world.
Ilchester Cheese was born in 1962 when founder Ken Seaton discovered how to keep his Cheddar truckles fresh on the bar of his hotel in Somerset - put beer in them! Tasting rather good, Beer Cheese was created, causing an outrage with 10 million teetotallers boycotting it - even though they needed to eat 20lbs to consume the equivalent of one pint of beer! With more cheeses to create, Ken set up The Ilchester Cheese Company in the picturesque village of Ilchester and never looked back at his hotel business.
