The Larder

Included in our Larder listings – order print copies of our national (pub. 2010) and regional guides.

Iain Mellis has six shops in Scotland, though each has an individual feel, with rounds of cheese stacked high and staff in traditional aprons. The main focus is on farmhouse cheeses from around the UK and Ireland – Fife’s Anster standing proud among them – along with select continental cheeses. Other delicacies, from cured meats to eggs, are also available. Staff are friendly, and always eager to impart their knowledge of cheese to help with your decision.
