Revolving Sushi Bars are now a thing of the past as a new contender has taken the food conveyor belt game to a whole new level.

Two words: Revolving Cheese. Yup, you heard that right, Revolving CHEESE.

The world’s first cheese conveyor belt restaurant has opened it’s doors as part of the new KERB Seven Dials food market in Covent Garden, London, and it’s here for good.

The company started life in 2014 as a cheese van in Maltby Street Market in South East London and travelled around UK festivals. But the company made a name for itself after getting rave reviews about its grilled cheese sandwiches causing the company to expanded to a restaurant, two years later.

The Cheese Bar opened in 2016 in Camden after an overly successful Crowdfunder with a huge reception and now the company has launched “Pick & Cheese”; the world’s first cheese conveyor belt restaurant.

There are a huge 25 different kinds of cheese to try – that’s right, 25 kinds of cheese rotating around straight to you.

Mathew Carver, the mastermind behind the Cheese Bar and Pick & Cheese told iNews:

At the Cheese Bar, customers see cheeses on the board and often want to pick and choose their own. There’s always been demand for more options. 

So this is a natural progression. We want to let people pick what they want, and give them the chance to try as many different varieties as possible.

And surprisingly – given London prices – Carver has made sure it’s all affordable; prices start at £2.95, with £5.25 being the most expensive option.

Carver hopes Pick & Cheese will help people discover some British cheeses which he says are ‘underrepresented,’ while also offering a diverse range of wines from France, Italy, Sicily, and more.

This comes after the hit from Homage2Fromage’s All-You-Can-Eat-Cheese Parties where you can eat cheese, chat, taste wine, eat cheese, meet new people and did I mention eat cheese? Nick, the co-founder of Homage2Fromage, explained to Metro:

The aim of the club is to celebrate great cheese in an informal fun way – this is not about snobby cheese and wine tastings, it is about sharing one of the greatest foods ever, in a simple, relaxed way.

Homage2Fromage helps you discover new cheese, meet like-minded cheese fans and hear some of the amazing stories behind cheese and cheesemaking.

If you are passionate about cheese, curious about the many different kinds of cheese out there, how it’s made, where it comes from, who makes it, why something so simple can be so diverse, so versatile, so delicious – then this is the club for you.”

For those interested in Pick & Cheese, the restaurant opened its doors on the 7th September – so what are you waiting for?

Cheese and wine nights will never be the same again.
