  • Great place to get snacks when at the Hunter Valley. However, gets too packed. Bard to move around and only 1 register which a lot of people get frustrated with.
  • Amazing!! I loved the cheese testing and bought their french cheese. I didn't give the place 5 stars because there is no section where I could see how they made the cheese. (I visited the place on Sunday Easter 2017)
  • Good selection of cheese & gourmet food. Wouldn't go there for the coffee again though
  • Lauren was friendly and extremely helpful. My order arrived early the very next day. I definitely recommend the Smelly Cheese Shop and Lauren for fabulous service!
  • Incredible range of cheese and cheese-friends, helpful and friendly staff, you can get a mini cheese tasting for $3.50 which led to is trying and buying half a dozen cheeses. Great place, would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Hunter Valley.
