Our cheese shop and café in this beautiful Georgian city

Shop & café in one

The Fine Cheese Co. cheese shop in Bath will wow you with its shelves of carefully selected cheese that's both the best of British and the best of Europe. All our charcuterie, wines and other artisan products have been chosen by our team of cheese and fine food specialists. 

From the moment you arrive in our café, you'll smell the soothing aroma of our authentic Le Piantagioni del Caffè coffee that's roasted in the Tuscany region of Italy, and then imported by us. There's also ice cream if you have a sweet tooth, or orange juice freshly squeezed here, should you be looking for vitamin C.

Our skilled chefs, using only the finest ingredients, cook and bake from scratch, and prepare everything in our café, including, for example, our monthly-changing seasonal menus, our macarons and our sandwiches.

Ask our friendly cheesemongers to prepare a platter based on your tastes, or speak to them about which cheeses are in season. If you're in awe of the cheese range, our staff will put you at ease. Wine and beer are on offer too.

All of our wines have been personally selected to pair perfectly with our cheeses and menu dishes. Some wines are available by the glass or carafe, including our fizz, but we have bottles to choose from as well. Ask a member of our staff for more details.

Our shop has a fantastic range of charcuterie, imported directly by us from Italy, France and Spain, all freshly cut for you.

And then there are biscuits, crackers, chutneys, chocolates, juices and nectars.

Drop into our Walcot Street shop and pick up something delicious to takeaway. If a sandwich just won't do, grab something from our Specials range, such as a savoury tart or sausage roll, to eat al-desko, or alfresco if you are lucky enough!




Mon - Thurs: 9am - 4pm

Please note that we now have revised opening hours. We are very used to maintaining high standards of hygiene, but we have taken extra steps, such as the frequent sanitisation of all door handles and card machines, and the provision of extra sanitisers, to keep both our customers and staff safe and healthy.

Meet the team


Having worked at Michelin star restaurants in France and the UK, Laurent joined The Fine Cheese Co. Bath as our Head Chef, and we’re so happy to have him here. He revels in the creativity and freedom of the profession and this really comes through in the menus he creates.

When it comes to cooking with cheese, Laurent loves the texture and creaminess of our Caseificio La Baronia Mozzarella di Bufala DOP and feels it has such versatility for hot and cold dishes alike.

Laurent is a man of many talents. Outside of the kitchen, he’s either painting, having won several national awards back in France, or officiating for Team Bath’s swimming galas and competitions.


Gautam cut his teeth at the School of Grand Chocolat Valrhona and the Callebaut Chocolate Academy. In our eyes, his desserts and pastries at The Fine Cheese Co. have already reached legendary status!

Gautam is a man who enjoys the classics, with our menu’s cheesecake and friands ranking among his favourites. However, if you ever want to bake something for his birthday, we hear he has quite a soft spot for Black Forest cake.

The always-happy Gautam also loves to help out with charity work when he can, with a very special Hospitality in Action event at Beaufort Polo Club ranking among his proudest achievements.


Nick was crowned champion of the 2015 Cheesemonger Invitational in his native America, and recently represented the UK at Mondial du Fromage, winning the title of Fourth Best Cheesemonger in the World! 

After leading our London team, Nick has now taken up residence at our Bath cheese shop, where he shares his passion with all and sundry. He's also frequently found in the cheese rooms at our affinage, where he collaborates on cheese care and maturation.

An unapologetic food obsessive, Nick's spare time sees him either in the kitchen, on rambles to collect wild garlic and nettles, or on missions to add to his personal whisky collection.
