The World’s First Cheese Conveyor Belt Is Now Open

The world’s first cheese conveyor belt has officially opened in London, which means a revolutionary change on how we eat cheese forever. 

The cheese conveyor belt, Pick & Cheese, is located in the new KERB Seven Dials market and the place offers 25 different types of cheese, which means you’ll be left spoilt for choice.

Cheese conveyor belt founder, Mathew Carver, has transformed the way we see cheese. The trader had humble beginnings, starting at Maltby Street Market before becoming a fully-fledged restauranteur in 2016.

According to Devon Live, the restaurant first began as a cheese van in 2014, travelling around UK festivals. After receiving praise for their amazing grilled cheese sandwiches, the food van was no longer, making room for the cheesiest restaurant in town!

From light cheeses such as the buttery Gubbean, or a crumbling Wensleydale, to the more powerfully flavoured Rollright or strong Renegade Monk, there is something to suit every cheese lovers’ desire.

Each of the cheeses on the menu come in a variety of different condiments, and upon request can be paired with a complimenting wine. The restaurant offers a diverse range of wines, with wines from France, Italy, Sicily and more.  All of these combinations include fresh ricotta that is complimented with sherry-infused cherries and a hazelnut brittle.

The cheesy delights don’t stop at the mains, the skilful cheese connoisseurs have also concocted a dessert menu that continues the heavenly cheese flavours. For anyone who has room to squeeze in a dessert, you can expect to find a Baron Bigod brie and Beauvale Blue soft-serve ice cream.

For anyone curious about checking the place out, guests can attend on a walk-in basis. There are two booths available, these can be booked online for groups of up to six people.

As fancy as it sounds, Carver has made it super affordable so you can make it a regular place to have your lunches. Prices begin at £2.95, with £5.25 being the most costly option. The portions of cheese also come on coloured code plates.

When imagining his restaurant, Mathew knew he needed to open up a place which would open the nation’s eyes to the full potential of cheese, believing British cheeses were being left “underrepresented”. And what better place is there to try new and exciting cheeses than the only cheese conveyor belt in the world?

In the upcoming months, Mathew intends to host events where some of his favourite British cheese-makers will be talking about their latest creations.

If London is a bit of a trek for you, why don’t you pop to your nearest Aldi for their Red Leicester cheese-filled sausages?
