...are our pride and joy.
Well over 250 different European cheeses can be found in our shops.
They have travelled from farms in England, Scotland and Wales, started their journey in Spain, Italy, Ireland or Switzerland or arrived from Holland and France - all with a story to tell!
With our cheese platters you can cater for ten, fifty or a hundred people - with ease.
First class European cheeses, freshly cubed and beautifully presented, will come perfectly ready for your corporate event.

...or cheese towers if you prefer, are slowly overtaking its buttercream and fruitcake counterparts, as every Bridezilla will happily confirm.
Ultimately they are a fun and novel way to do a cheeseboard, no matter what the occasion or number of guests. We love making them and you will always find some examples on display in our shops.
We make hundreds of rolls and sandwiches, croissants and torpedos on site everyday.
We love creating new combinations, whilst never tiring of our classics - like French Brie & Cranberry, Applewood Smoked & Normandy Chutney, Stilton with Tomato & Lettuce, Emmental & Salami... etc.
...not forgetting our Champagne, Whisky and Port!
As well as a large selection of red and white wines - there's Pommery, Moët, Ayala, Bolinger, Deutz, Louis Boyier, Laurent-Perrier and Veuve Clicquot, even chilled.
Dalmore, Glenfarclas and Tomintoul - for Whisky lovers and Taylors or Fonsecca if you are into vintage Port.
Paté, pickle and chutney choices. You can find jam, curd, marmalade, honey, quince paste (needless to say) and the glorious baked fig ball from Calabria.
Last but not least: crackers, bisuits, oils & vinegars.
We love everything cheese wants to be with.
... those were the days.
Ray in his first shop in Goodge Street in 1987.
The beard is gone but the smile is still there and so are the two main International Cheese branches in Liverpool Street and Victoria Station, which opened in 1991 and 1995 respectively.
Unlike today the city - where Ray worked as a management consultant in the eighties - was a rather sad place as far as food and shopping was concerned. 'There was no choice whatsoever at lunchtime. No nice shops either' says Ray.
.... this is how the crazy idea to put a speciality food store with old fashioned flair, high quality products and tons of freshly made rolls and sandwiches into a busy train station came about.
Thinking about it, 30 years into the project ...it doesn't actually seem that crazy after all
Another plunge was taken in 2012 when International Cheese went 'online @ last".
is open 24 hours a day. Just saying.
