The Best Cheese Shop in the UK is in Lincoln

The Cheese Society shop and cafe in Lincoln has been named the UK’s Cheese Shop of the Year 2018.

The Cheese Society were shortlisted down to the final 10 in the UK in the Guild of Fine Food’s 2018 Cheese Shop of the Year competition to be judged in the final to name the country’s best cheese shop.

The shop and cafe went through judging stages involving a mystery shopper who awarded a 100% mark and gave a rave review of the shop, customer service, presentation and range and quality of cheeses.

The Cheese Society also spent time with a representative from the Guild who quizzed them on various aspects of our business and what stands the shop apart from the others.

The awards took place at The Guild of Fine Food’s headquarters in Borough Market in London on Thursday 20th September for a brilliant night of great food and amazing people who work in the industry, where they were announced as the winner (photo: Kate O’Meara, Lucie Nock).

Lucie Nock, from The Cheese Society, said “We’re absolutely thrilled to have won this award, we put a lot of work and commitment into our little cheese shop and cafe. We strongly focus on our customer service and its so wonderful to be recognised for the things we really value. It’s also great to get Lincoln even more firmly cemented on the foodie map!”
