Wensleydale Creamery restaurant to open ‘cheese bar’

The Wensleydale Creamery has announced a new ‘cheese bar’ concept at its Calvert’s restaurant.

Billed as a ‘tapas-style dining experience’, the new Wensleydale Cheese Bar will see guests be able to try a selection of Wensleydale Creamery’s cheeses, each paired with a carefully selected accompaniment.

Calvert’s earlier this week after being shut over the winter.

The parings include Yorkshire Wensleydale paired with Rosebud Preserves Yorkshire Wensleydale Chutney, Naturally Oak-Smoked Yorkshire Wensleydale alongside sweet basil olives, and Kit Calvert Old-Style Wensleydale served with half a bulb of The Garlic Farm sweet-syrupy flavoured Black Garlic.

There’s also Yorkshire Wensleydale & Stem Ginger paired alongside Choc Affair’s Lime & Sea Salt Dark Chocolate or Yorkshire Cheddar with the Filey Bay Flagship Single Malt Whisky.

Trish Cannon, visitor centre director at the Wensleydale Creamery said: “We’re thrilled to reopen Calvert’s and introduce our brand-new cheese bar.

“Our cheese experts have carefully selected the cheese and accompaniments to create a unique and exciting dining experience that celebrates the delicious flavours of our handcrafted cheeses.

“We can’t wait for our guests to try it!”
