This famous cheese shop in the ancient square of Sandbach has long been a 'must see' on the South Cheshire tourist trail. The cast iron Cheshire Cheese plaque by the entrance signals to get your taste buds working as you walk in.

David is a 4th generation Williams and a great promoter of local Cheshire cheeses. Family records show how they took grocery orders from local farms and often got paid in Cheshire cheese - a form of barter currency. So how did shopkeeper David become a cheese maker with several of his cheeses listed by major supermarkets?

He started on a small scale making Bowland with Chris Sandham's Lancashire with apple, raisins and cinnamon from a recipe his great grandfather, Thomas Williams, made at Christmas. Today, David has a purpose built cheese blending unit on Crewe Hall Estate employing ten people producing a range of flavour added cheeses. He is very strict about starting with a first grade cheese before creating cheeses like Red Hot Mex.

Available from his shop Williams of Sandbach. His flavour added cheeses are also available in many supermarkets.
