Cheese


A cellar full of wine calls for a delectable cheese selection, and cheese has always been a big part of Vivat Bacchus. Since day one, both branches have had their own walk-in cheese room, and our expert staff can tell you all about the cheeses we stock.

We have several set cheeseboards on our menu. We will also happily take you into the cheese room for the “Cheese Room Experience” to show you what is on offer and let you decide the content of your cheeseboard yourself. We change and expand our selection regularly, but both branches always have a selection of over 40 cheeses.

The Cheese Room Experience


Since our doors first opened our two branches have been one of the few restaurants in London to offer guests the opportunity to visit the cheese rooms - shrines for any cheese lover to salivate over!

Over the years we have had the stressful task of scrupulously sampling hundreds of cheeses from Britain and across Europe in order to bring our visitors nothing but the best (and in some cases the quirkiest) cheeses we can find. A member of our gillet-wearing cheese team, equipped with a mean cheese knife and a wealth of cheese knowledge, is always on hand to take you into our cheese room and show you what we have on offer.

Ask questions, have a taste, and decide on the selection you would like to have on your cheeseboard. Your cheese and garnish selection will then be weighed and charged accordingly.

Cheese and Wine Tastings


You can arrange a bespoke cheese and wine tasting experience for small or large groups, when we will ensure your cheeses are paired with the ultimate wines of course!

Please provide us with your budget, dates and number of people, and we will prepare a tasting proposal and check availability.

Call us at Farringdon on 020 7353 2648 and at London Bridge on 020 7234 0891 to discuss.

Our Cheese


Our cheese selection is updated regularly and may vary between the branches. The list is a sample of what you can expect to find in our cheese rooms. What we can promise you is that we will always have an ample selection
of around 45-50 different cheeses for you to choose from.
