Cheese on a barge? Is this a new Wallace fantasy? No, this is for real.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Cheese Barge Afternoon Tea on a barge in London. Cheese tasting experience on a solid 96ft double decker barge, The Cheese Barge! Moored on the Regent's Canal serving - cheese! In fact they do ring the changes with the odd Braised beef shin risotto ( with fresh goat’s curd) but really their grilled cheese sarnies and cheese boards are the main event. It’s just the best way to watch the world and the ducks go by.
The best way to check out this floating cheese palace is to forgo cakes, and tea and sit down to ‘Afternoon Cheese tasting for Two’. This comprises a platter of 6 different British cheeses, each with individual condiment pairings, a carafe of house wine (red or white), alongside crackers and a grilled cheese sandwich.
If that sounds a bit mundane, perhaps we should point out that the cheeses are to die for. The Cheese barge supports the real cheese makers of Britain, farmers and rural communities who produce cheeses that you can’t find in supermarkets. The pairings are selected with care and could be a pickled cucumber or a slice of poached pear.
So pass the chilli jam Gromit, and help yourself to some of that Quicke’s Clothbound Cheddar on the way round…
