British Cheese Week

A few days ago I ventured to the Three Fishes, a country pub inn located in Mitton, Lancashire. As some of you may be aware, it’s been British Cheese Week over the past seven days. Consequently, The Three Fishes, a restaurant specialising in local produce; requested some Butlers Trotter Hill to place on their bar to mark the event.



We provided them with a 1kg wedge of delicious Trotter Hill, which they placed at each end of the bar, and it’s safe to say that this went down a treat with customers! Trotter Hill really is the perfect cheese for this occasion, it’s strong complex flavour & loose open texture allow you to nibble at the cheese, enjoying the flavour without being over faced by a heavy slab of cheese, which can often be the case with a cheddar when used for similar occasions. Subsequently, Trotter Hill didn’t need any fancy accompaniments; often people over complicate a cheeseboard, when often a good-sized wedge of the right cheese is all people want!



If you ever take a visit to Lancashire, or are travelling past Junction 30 on the M6, then the Three Fishes pub inn is certainly a good place to visit. Do remember to order the cheeseboard though, which has a great selection of cheese; including Trotter Hill & Blacksticks Blue.


Keep Smiling,
