A Homage to Fromage

Once a year, regular as clockwork, the Swan & Rushes pub in Leicester comes over all cheesy. Big deal I hear you cry, since when did cheese become a big story? Well this is no ordinary collection of cheeses, and here's the clever bit. For every rare and delicious cheese available at this years festival, there's an equally distinctive cider or perry to help wash it down. Ha! Now I've got your attention.

Cheese will be cut, and Cider will flow from 5pm on Friday the 21st May. Note: no unaccompanied Mice admitted.
