remember 'FINE CHEESE IS A LUXURY WORTH QUEUING FOR'!!
Deliveries to our trade customers will continue as required.
Food and Farmers Markets across the country are taking place if they can manage the social distancing controls, remember by supporting them you will be helping farmers, small cheese makers and other wonderful local producers. The closure of pubs, restaurants and all hospitality has affected many small artisan producers.... we hope the difficult times have passed and we can all get back to a sensible safe sustainable lifestyle .
Our passion for cheese has become a big part of the business. We're always on the lookout for unusual, artisan cheese that we can bring to you at an affordable price.
The public face of the company is Myles Salmon, supported by wife Jo and a team of willing helpers.
Lookout for the new Merry Mouse Deli Van (below), for her full story visit the MM page. Whilst we LOVE the vintage way of doing things our work schedule has required an equipment update. Our original much loved van has gone to work in Somerset for a well known cheese producer, we wish her well.
New Product Alert…..
APPLE JUICE - in an attempt to improve our energy levels and reduce our wine intake we have taken to APPLE FIZZ. SPARKLING WATER AND FRUIT JUICE, we have a near neighbour and good friend organised to supply us. Buy per bottle or by the case.

Slater Eyre Linconshire Plumbread.
Made using the original 1834 recipe in the Pocklingtons’s family bakery using flour from wheat grown on the Lincolnshire Wolds.
The secret of a good moist Plumbread lies in the quality of the fruit. The dried fruit is sourced directly from the grower in Turkey.
Not a plumb in sight, this fruit loaf flavoured with blend of spices including ginger & cinnamon. There are many ways to use it. We like to toast it under the grill and eat with chunks of hard cheese, on special occasions we use thin buttered slices as a base for gravlax or smoked salmon with a dash of dill sauce.
From the Black Mountain Smokery
Produced by the Carthew family in Crickhowell - Expensive but after extensive taste tests this proved to be the VERY BEST we could find.
Peppered Smoked Trout Fillets
Hot Smoked Salmon - Try with Dill Sauce.... so good... and healthy!
Smoked Duck and Chicken Breast ...
Dan Salmons 8oz Aged Sirloin Steak.....
Proving to be a big hit, tender with great flavour. Dan is also producing some very good hand made burgers... beef or pork and apple. Its best to order them well in advance if your having a party.
Terrines and Pates from France.
Not local but we love them. They come in jars with a long shelf life.
Duck, Wild Boar,Trout & Almond, Salmon & Dill and a few others.
