Most luxurious selection of cheese in Newcastle

It is grate to welcome you to our independent local cheese shop in Jesmond, Newcastle.

We are so proud of our huge selection of cheese sourced from farmers and cheesemongers locally, all over the UK and across the continent.

We are passionate about all things cheese. So whether it’s a classic cheddar or creamy camembert that you’re after, rest assured that Grate will have the perfect cheese for your palate.

Our knowledge combined with over 30 years’ experience and genuine love for cheese is what makes us your trusted local cheesemonger, and we are always happy to share.


Grate is your local, independent cheesemonger, championing both local and British cheese.

Our founder, Moz, discovered her love of cheese in the late 90s when, working her first job at Fortnum & Mason, realised that not all cheese came in individual foil-wrapped triangles, and that there so much more to the delightful dairy dish.

Since then, she has worked for many independent food retailers including Fortnum & Mason, Bluebird at Chelsea and Fenwick, before deciding to open her own shop in 2019. After a long delay due to Covid restrictions, Grate finally opened its doors in October 2020.

We believe cheese shouldn’t be intimidating, and that it should be accessible to all. At Grate we love nothing more than introducing a new cheese or cheese style to someone. We think our informal approach and friendly attitude both online and in-person makes the shop welcoming to all, whether you’re a newcomer, or a cheese connoisseur.
