  • "Cheese cheese, lovely cheese!". Ah the cry of the world weary traveller on encountering a small shop selling only the food of the gods. Delicious cheese. Heaven. Or so I thought until I entered the shop equivalent of belzebubs lair. Oh, sure, the tasty cheese was lovely, no complaints. Expensive but tasty. Stupidly I hadn't realised that by pro-creating (not in the shop I might add) and bringing my offspring into the Cheese Box was such a grave error. How foolish I now feel. What hideous crime did my 6 year old son commit I hear you ask? Did he smash through the sneeze guard with his tiny hands, push a whole Stilton (delicious by the way) into the face of his sister whilst screaming Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, hands now caked in blood and high-end cheddar, artisan crackers strewn as far as the eye could see? No. He tried to sit on a stool. Kids these days eh? No manners. In my day you'd be lucky if you were allowed to speak and that was on your birthday and the nearest you'd get to cheese would be if an adult (or "elder" as they were then) let you fight the cat for the Pepper Boursan wrapper. To the death. Needless to say the parting shot from the member of staff (cheese captain? Queen of Gorgonzola?) that we should have "taken them to playground" was both welcoming and well researched. "Everyday is a school day" so the saying goes. I learnt that a cheese shop staffed by someone who hates people (because children are people too) should probably stick to cheese production. I'm clearly no expert but I feel the cheese ageing process could be sped up simply by being in the same room as this particular woman. Possibly underground. In a cave. Away from all those horrible people that keep trying to buy things from you (idiots).
  • Amazing cheese, wine and local beers. I highly recommend the ISIS!
  • Great cheese shop.Amazing choice of local produce and passionate shop assistance. I could spend all day there ☺
  • Good little cheese shop covering all the basics, plus a good range of local cheeses and condiments. Staff are happy to advise. You can't really go wrong.
  • When visiting Whitstable we always visit the Cheesebox & buy some cheese a delightful little shop who sells good quality cheese. They are very helpful & let you taste the cheese before you make your purchase. A charming & specialist shop.
