The Mousetrap Cheese Shop
30 Church Street, Hereford, Herefordshire, HR1 2LR
Produce: Fine artisan cheese
The Mousetrap Cheese Shop are passionate about finding great tasting cheese…... They buy their produce directly from the farm producer or dairy to understand the background and maturing techniques of each individual cheese.
Working closely with nearby producers, Claire and Matt champion cheeses from local dairies, including Hereford Hop, Blue Monk, Finn, Wrekin Blue, Stinking Bishop and many more to portray the true provenance of Herefordshire and the surrounding area.
80% of the cheeses they sell in their huge range are the best of British, including favourites from the traditional such as Stilton, Wensleydale, Cheshire and Lancashire. To the more unusual and exciting such as Drunken Burt, Cornish Kern, Golden Cenarth and St Eadburgha . With a huge range of ewes and goats milk cheeses and a generous splattering of European stars, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Where possible, they like to buy their cheeses directly from the cheesemakers. This close relationship with the cheese producers results in a detailed understanding of what makes each cheese unique, how it matures and the best way to store and serve it.
They understand how cheese ripens over time and they mature some themselves to ensure their perfection at time of sale.
With a wide variety of condiments to compliment the cheese including, chutneys, preserves, marmalades and mustards, all of which are available to purchase online.
The Mousetrap Cheese Shop commands a great reputation and is much loved by the cheese lovers of Herefordshire and Shropshire and we know you will love it too!
