The Cheese Bar began life on the streets. The Cheese Truck made a name for themselves as the best in the grilled cheese business, melting some of the best British cheeses at Maltby Street Market and events all over the UK from their iconic yellow converted 1970s ice cream vans.
They opened their flagship restaurant, The Cheese Bar, in the heart of historic Camden Stables Market in 2017. 18 months on, they continue to champion British cheese through their inventive, cheese-focused menu, which includes Cheese Truck classics such as the Cropwell Bishop Stilton, Bacon & Pear Chutney grilled cheese; alongside new dishes such as Queso Fundido, a Mexican version of fondue; Chicken Poutine with Crispy Onion & Sage; and a collaboration dessert with fellow Taste favourite Happy Endings.
The attention to detail that goes into their food is reflected in everything from their British-made cutlery and crockery to their small producer wines and British spirits.
Offering honest, well-sourced food in modern, design-conscious settings, The Cheese Bar encourages their customers to learn about and take pride in the food made on our doorstep, and the people who dedicate their lives to making it.
They work closely with their producers, sourcing all of their cheese direct from UK-based farms and urban cheesemakers – many within the M25, including La Latteria from Acton, and Gringa Dairy from Peckham. Some of them are making cheese in a traditional and thoughtful way, whilst others are pushing the boundaries of cheesemaking and shaking up an industry that was previously facing decline.
Founder Mathew Carver says, ‘Just two years ago we were trading from our little yellow trucks. Now we’re thriving in Camden and looking forward to bringing our British cheese revolution back to Taste for a third time. We love being able to support amazing British cheesemakers through our dishes, and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.’
