Some would call it an experiment; others would say its a designer cheese. This is a one off, made in a moment of anarchy by the cheesemaker who periodically ignores the rule book and makes something different - because he can! This months special is Ellis, a lovely young fresh, light yet robust, tangy Cheshire/Wensleydale like Cheese - perfect with biscuits and chilli jam!

Here is what a recent customer had to say about Ellis..
Thanks very much! The Ellis was delicious! I belong to a cheese club that meets in the Cornhill pub in Rhayader, Powys every week. Nothing too serious: everyone brings some cheese; we sample it and vote on which we like most; a Cheese King or Queen is appointed, who has to make a rule for the week. Anyway last week’s rule was that everyone had to bring a cheese from the place where s/he was born. I was born in Guy’s Hospital, so I was a bit stumped until someone directed me to your website. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the Ellis was joint winner, along with an Époisses from burgundy and a Don Luis Romero from Spain. It was a pretty close thing, but the Landlord, who is the arbitrator in such matters, cast his deciding vote in favour of the Ellis.
