Our Story

Read about how we started and who’s in the team.

Who we are

Harry and Phoebe took over Love Cheese in September 2015. They saw a lovely little shop that served the locals and both loved it. With a passion for good food and drink it was an easy decision to make. They wanted to take it and reach a wider audience that were unaware of what a little gem they had on their doorstep. And then the dream became even bigger. What if they set up an online shop and introduce even more people to the deliciousness of independently produced cheese. From Hafod in Wales, the Hebridean Blue in Scotland to Ribblesdale Smoked Goats Cheese of Yorkshire.

Where Are We?

We are a small shop and cafe based on Gillygate in York. Set in the heart of the minster quarter and sitting underneath the historic city walls, Love Cheese is a destination for local and tourist foodies.

Our Selection of Continental, British and Yorkshire cheeses have been specially picked to cater for all. From Mild to Strong, Young to Mature, Hard to Soft, we will have something for everyone.
