As soon as I knew that Cheese & Cheers on Osborne Road was opening I just knew I had to go. I absolutely love cheese and the French culture and anywhere I go that has a cheese board on the menu I have to order it. It is my weakness.

We decided to head out to Cheese & Cheers on a Friday shortly after work so that we could bring the kids with us and not have to worry about childcare. Though they do not provide highchairs (which didn’t bother us as we brought out little booster seat) they were very accommodating with us having two young children.

Instead of having a main meal each, we decided to go for a few little dishes and that way we got to sample more of their yummy menu.

Our first plate was a charcuterie board. This went down pretty well, particularly with the little one asking for “more, more”. Next we decided to have a cheese tasting board, which was a selection of 5 different cheeses varying in strength. When they were brought out to us the waitress described each of the cheeses, their flavours and regions and the board came with a little card to remind us what cheeses were on the platter. Whilst we all shared this, the girls had these gorgeous little homemade blinis with cheese, of which they devoured.

To accompany our cheese and charcuteries, my husband and I had a Bordeaux. Now I’m not a wine buff by any means, but I can assure you this wine was good!

The service at Cheese & Cheers was excellent, and we even met the owner Nadine who is a lovely lady and clearly passionate about what she does and that really shines through in her wine bar/deli and menu selection.


Now, if you want to take a little slice of Cheese & Cheers home with you, they have cheese counter displaying a fine selection and they frequently have market stalls in Southsea, so there is always an opportunity to have a bit of Cheese & Cheers in your life!
