Our Story

Mathew started The Cheese Truck in early 2014 to celebrate and promote all that is great about British cheese.

From humble beginnings at Maltby Street Market, to becoming a regular fixture on the UK festival circuit, we made a name for ourselves serving some of Britain’s best grilled cheese sandwiches from our iconic classic Bedford vans: Archie, Alfie & Audrey.

We’ve conquered the fields of Glastonbury, starred in Hollywood Movies and travelled as far as Istanbul and Dubai, selling half a million sandwiches & amassing a passionate following on our mission to rejuvenate British cheese.

In 2016, we decided it was time to make the jump to bricks and mortar. We reached our crowdfunding target in less than a week, and opened our flagship Camden restaurant the following year.

Fast forward to 2019, which sees the launch of our latest concept, Pick & Cheese – the world’s first cheese conveyor belt restaurant. It’s our attempt to shake up the traditional cheese and wine bar format, and encourage people to get out of their comfort zone and try something new!

Our aim is to share our food with as many people as possible, whilst informally educating our customers on how great British produce can be.

The price of our dishes fairly reflect the quality of their ingredients, as well as the time and energy it’s taken to get them to your plate. That being said, we’ll always keep our food affordable and accessible.

We want everyone to embrace it, and be part of our British cheese revolution!

“This Cheese Truck could be the best street food truck ever…”


“At the heart of the Cheese Bar is a passion for good products. Everything is as local as it can be, and all from the UK. There’s attention given to everything… That’s why it’s so good.”

Evening Standard

“The Cheese Truck have reached new heights in the art of melted sandwich fillings.”

Mike's Fancy Cheese

November 26th 2013: the day Mike Thompson made his first Young Buck, deliciously smooth and savoury raw milk “Stilton”. Mike fell in love with cheese at Arcadia Deli in Belfast and then followed a pilgrimage of the great cheesemakers of the UK, living out of the back of his car. Truly dedicated to his art, in Young Buck, Mike has made an iconic modern classic.
