Located in heart of London's historic Merton Abbey Mills, Cut & Cured is a purveyor of some of the finest cheeses and cured meats from across the UK and Europe.
Hand picked and handmade from the finest producers
We take pride in sourcing the products on our shelves and work with small scale producers who share our commitment to quality and make real food with real ingredients the old fashioned way. Our bread is long fermented sourdough, we do not stock products made with additives, palm oil or ingredients that shouldn't be there. Our cheese is made the proper way, by hand and with minimal ingredients! Not only are traditionally made foods better for us and our planet but they taste better too!

The cheeses we stock are chosen by us for their superior quality and taste. Many of them come from small producers we have personally visited and worked with for a number of years. As well as the better known classics such as Stilton, West Country Cheddar and Brie, we also stock an ever changing range of lesser known interesting cheeses.
From springtime Goat's cheese to full flavoured Christmas Stilton, our range reflects the changing seasons and is always based on what is tasting great right now! When visiting us, we're always on hand to help you create the perfect cheeseboard.
We definitely believe in trying cheese before buying it and want to make sure that you are happy with your purchase. Our cheeses are hand made in small batches, often with different and interesting characteristics that do change with age as the cheese develops.
If you need any serving suggestions we have a great range of hand picked complementary products from locally hand made chutneys, truffle honey (great with blues and bries), biscuits and sourdough bread (the walnut bread is a must)!
we're already Looking after your cheese
The correct storage of cheese can make all the difference to the final taste of your cheese board. We carefully monitor the cheese in the deli daily in order to serve them to you in their optimum condition.
How you should Store your Cheese
Cheese is best stored in a cool, rather than cold place, a larder or cool pantry is ideal. Domestic fridges are fine for storing your cheese at home but they do tend to be a little on the cold side and also very dry. If storing your fridge in a cheese we recommend that cheese should be stored in a small container to reduce drying out, the salad compartment or a tupperware box are ideal.
how best to enjoy your cheese
We sell every piece of cheese wrapped in waxed paper as this allows the cheese to breathe. Wrapping cheese in clingfilm is a bad idea, it causes the cheese to sweat which impacts on the flavour and quality of your cheese when you come to eat it. When storing cheese in the fridge, bring it out a few hours before serving and let it get to room temperature. Coldness suppresses flavour, serving your cheese at room temperature will make them taste so much better.
We've sourced a range of cured meats from London to Lombardy, all are different with amazing, natural flavours. Whilst our Italian and Basque meats are made from rare breed, free range animals our London salamis use lovingly raised, indigenous locally grown British Heritage pork.
