A double-decker cheese boat is coming to the UK which will offer cheese lovers the opportunity to dine on an array of cheesy delights.
A cheese barge will be setting sail across London this spring which means you tuck into some delightful cheese whilst enjoying the sights of the city canal.
The two-story floating restaurant has been designed to highlight the UK’s best Fromage, with head chef Reagan Ellenbroek and executive chef Ross Keeling promising guests “honest British dishes using small producer cheese”.
The barge is set to launch in April in Paddington Central and has been backed by cheese lovers across the nation, having raised £130,000 in a six-day crowdfunding event.
The brainchild of The Cheese Barge is Matthew Carver, also the founder of The Cheese Bar in Camden and the creator of Convent Garden’s hip spot Pick & Cheese Restaurant, which sees cheese of all shapes and sizes zooming up and down a conveyor belt. If this doesn’t reassure you this guy knows his stuff about cheese, then maybe the fact he’s a judge at the World Cheese Awards.
The entrepreneur said: “Hailing from Jersey, I spent my childhood years messing around in boats.
“So, when the opportunity of opening The Cheese Barge came along, we couldn’t say no.”
He added: “The fact it was British-made by real craftsmen appealed to our continued efforts to support British industry.
“We’ve always set out to create fun restaurant experiences, and what could be more fun than eating the best of British cheese on the Grand Union Canal.”
This isn’t the only cheese event to take over London in recent months, Cafe Rouge launched the world’s first cheese-themed hotel in Camden for a limited time only.
