Oh My Gouda! This London Restaurant Is Opening A Dedicated Cheese Room

We don't brie-lieve it! Fancy French restaurant Le Pont de la Tour is opening a new cheese room.

Cheese-loving diners can book themselves a sitting in the cosy riverside hut and tuck into a three-course cheese fondue menu.

The intimate experience is designed for a maximum of four people at a time, though we reckon you'd chock up some serious date points if you booked it for yourself and your other half.  

Cosy blankets are provided at your table on the restaurant's Alpine terrace, and you're allocated your own private waiter for the duration of your meal. Lunchtime and evening sittings are available, and the Cheese Room offers views over the Thames.

Now, about that cheese. The three-course feast begins with a gratin of potato, leek and smoked Morteau sausage with a frisée salad, followed by an indulgent cheese fondue to share. Finish up with a mini tarte Tatin with lemon, thyme and caramel and a Brillat-Savarin cheesecake.

The Cheese Room at Le Pont de la Tour,  Butlers Wharf Buildings, 36 Shad Thames, SE1 2YE. It's open 8-31 January 2020, and need to be booked in advance — tickets are £50 per person and include a welcome glass of Moët & Chandon champagne. Once you've bought your tickets online, you'll need to phone 020 7403 8403 to book your date.
