Overall the food was very nice, however, this was grossly overshadowed by the fact that I could barely hear my friend speak at the table - to the point where we couldn't even have a conversation without me asking her to repeat what she said multiple times. The cheese bar itself is very small which probably contributes to why it is so noisy, the music was too loud and there are no toilets. I think it is a good concept but there are many flaws and for these reasons I wouldn't return here or recommend it to a friend.

The cheese bar is a must for any cheese lover! The Mozzarella dippers and Raclette are my favourites but there is a great selection of cheeses and drinks to compliment them.

It was our first time in Camden market, although we have been London before. Our experience was fantastic, service was excellent and food was delicious. We ordered cheese fondue which was delicious , we also had a kid with us who ordered the 5 cheese pasta which was also delicious. We also ordered the rosemary and colada cocktail which where really nice as well. Servers were very nice and friendly, they also took our languages so that we can sit comfortably. Service was quick and efficient. I would definitely recommend this bar to anyone, it's worth a visit.

I had real high hopes about the cheese bar. I had contacted them prior about being gluten free so they could accommodate.

They substituted the bread with the most tasteless crackers you could buy. Honestly the packaging they came in probably had more flavour

The potatoes were so salty it sucked all the moisture from my mouth.

The wine tasted like soap.

I've been before so was extremely disappointed. I would not recommend this place.

My partner and I arrived adhoc to this venue, we was told the tables inside where fully booked so was recommended to sit outside which we had no issue doing. We took a seat outside and awaited someone to bring menus/introduce themselves for roughly 10 minutes, no one arrived. During this time I booked a table online.. walked back inside and said that I had booked a table (I found this odd as the server had already informed me there was nothing available and they where fully booked inside the restaurant?). He seated us at the bar counter, I must say the venue itself was gorgeous. We waited a further 10/15 minutes before someone approached us and asked if we 'wanted anything', I was a little unsure if we could order food at the bar counter so had to ask. We then surveyed the area to see minimal customers and the 4 servers chatting among themselves for a large majority of our stay. We had ordered the Classic Four Cheese Fondue Pot (For 2), it was quite impressive but nothing overly wowing about the presentation nor the taste. At no point did anyone approach us to ask if we where enjoying our meal or if we needed a top-up on our drinks. Once we had finished we waited patiently for someone to clear our plates after 5 minutes I staked the plates myself to see if this would spur any of servers on, nothing. We then waited another 5 minutes before calling a server over to clear the plates and get the bill. We would have stayed for another course or two but the poor service really jilted this experience for me.

My Girlfriend and I visited for her birthday in May 2019 and it was one of the nicest restaurants we've been to. The staff were extremely friendly and polite. We LOVED the four cheese fondue! They even surprised my girlfriend with a sundae and a candle (a very nice touch!) We are definitely going to come back and will certainly be recommending The Cheese Bar to our friends. :)

My first experience at The Cheese Bar has been really good: great food and drink selection, nice buzz, great food. Customer service was good: some team member better than others and they looked after the customers in a professional and friendly way (I've been there when the manager on duty has to handle a complaint with some customers sitting close to me, it went smoothly and nicely). I'd recommend this place to a friend and I'll be back soon!

We made a noon reservation and were very glad we did as it was steadily busy while there.

The recommendations were spot on. We had the blue cheese raclette, cheese board and shared a 500ml Sauvignon Blanc. I need gluten free and they knew because of my Open Table profile so they brought GF crackers to me. Fantastic!

It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

If you love your cheese, go here! The mozzarella sticks are unreal! We had the raclette and our friends had fondue, both very yummy, although we would have like to have our own raclette so we could melt the cheese ourselves (it came out already done for you on the plate!) but it was extremely yummy nevertheless and we will be back! :0)

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday as he loves cheese. Great venue, really good vibe. Has lots of gluten free options, not bread (maybe could think about doing this?) but had crackers and tortilla chips.Different. Would definitely go back.

I had bought my girlfriend 100 miles
To come here as a birthday surprise as she loves cheese, unfortunately they had run out of the dishes she wanted. The staff were ok albeit a little dismissive and slow. The food we eventually had was very good though. Although in terms of value for money was a little on the high side.

Great Cheese, with lots of options and really well constructed dishes. It's an inclusive restaurant with everyone sat around a counter or at one other long thin table, but that adds to the experience.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and willing to go the extra yard to make sure you enjoy yourself.

The only slight downfall is the walk to the public toilet as they don't have one in the restaurant.

Very nice place for every cheese enthusiast. Nice atmosphere and a good selection on the menu. Prices are a bit high for the portion size but on the other hand the quality of the food is exquisite. Service was very nice and quick.

Would have liked to be able to buy some of the cheeses they display on the big panel, it's a shame it's just a brag list :)

We asked for the fondue and the bread had mould. They changed it immediately and tried to fix it by saying it wasn't mould but "it was next to the blue cheese" which sounds like the lamest excuse ever. Of course we didn't receive any discount, or complimentary bread or anything.

My friends and I enjoyed our meal here although the service was very slow. We ordered starters, sharers and main plates to all come at once to share and received one starter after about a 45 minute wait before waiting another 45 minutes for the rest of our food. The waiter who served us was helpful and apologetic but unfortunately this did not make up for the inexcusable wait.

When the food arrived it was excellent (although a little tepid which suggested it had been ready for a while) and we would visit again in the hopes that this service was a one-off poor experience.

Great food and ambience. The service can become slower when there’s a lot of people seated - particularly around the bar. The food was really nice and what others were eating looked good too. The only thing that lowers comfortability is that you are sat on high chairs around a high bar that is quite cramped and therefore you may find you haven’t got much arm space. Also, at the main bar, there is corner seating which may not be to everyone’s liking.

Cheese was delightful, but service was average. Booked a table and asked to sit at the bar, but those spots were 'all reserved'. Seats still vacant when we left. Service wasn't great either as it took quite a bit of time for us to get some attention from wait staff. Probably wont be rushing back.
