Farming and cheesemaking have been a way of life for the Appleby family for several generations. Their cheesemaking has changed little since it began in 1952 and the Cheshire variety is particularly good with a moist and crumbly texture, and a flavour which is clean, zesty and rich.
Fentimans was estalbished in 1905 and is famous for its ‘botanically brewed beverages’ – a simple process involving herbs and plant roots to create invigorating and full-flavoured drinks, including traditional ginger beer.
The Swaledale Cheese Company
It’s thought that cheese making was first brought to the Yorkshire Dales in the 11th century by Cistercian monks who arrived from Normandy and settled in the local abbeys. They in turn passed on the cheese making techniques to the local farmers of Swaledale and thus, Swaledale cheese was born.

With a store on Rue Saint-Honore in Paris, Michel Cluizel produces what we consider to be the world’s finest chocolate.

At The Wharf House we only use the rarer dark roast – not available to members of the public and rarely used by other establishments – which boasts a deeper, more unique flavour.
