Fine Artisan Cheese in Birmingham
Fine artisan cheeses
Our vision is based around integrity, quality, and freshness from an honest, trusted, knowledgeable, passionate and experienced cheesemonger.
¡Queso! is a specialist cheesemonger selling the finest artisan cheese from around the UK and continental Europe.
¡Queso! is owned by Mick James, cheese enthusiast and connoisseur.
¡Queso! always has a selection of over 60 cheeses at any one time; rotating approximately 100 cheeses depending on season, availability, maturity and how much Mick feels like stocking them! We do not sell any cheese we personally do not like (sorry!) which generally works well because we’re passionate about good cheese.
We have high standards! We only sell cheeses which are
- artisan, made by small, independent producers, not mass produced
- generally unavailable to purchase from supermarkets
- unpasteurised wherever possible
- without additives (we make an exception for black truffle)
- made from milk from either cows, goats, sheep or buffaloes
- absolutely delicious
What Customers Are Saying
I came across Queso at the Cheese Festival, Aston Hall, Birmingham last weekend. They were v helpful and passionate about their products. I’m very passionate about Cheese and it was an absolute delight to speak with Mick and sample some Cheese. I went on to buy quite a bit, which I ate all to myself throughout this week. The Baron Bigod Brie actually blew my mind it was so good and the 30 month aged Comte, delicious. I await a delivery tomorrow from Queso and I think have become a new and very happy customer. Highly, highly, recommended.

I have had a few orders from Mick @ Queso over the last few months and can honestly say they have never been disappointed, always super fresh, amazing flavours, delivered on the day of cutting and beautifully wrapped. Mick is extremely knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. I have bought the cheese hampers for myself and as gifts for friends and always the same feedback, “what a unique gift and so yummy” I would have no hesitation in recommending Mick the team Queso, Thank you.
