Worcester Hop Cheese, cheddar in toasted hops, formerly called Hereford Hop
Our biggest seller, tangy, cheddar rolled in Hops
Worcester Hop Cheese was formerly known as Hereford hop cheese, but although the name has changed, it's the same cheese we've always sold by Croome cuisine and by far our biggest seller in Hereford. An unusual cheese made near Worcester and rolled in toasted hops from Herefordshire. Invented in 1990 it's softer than other Cheddars and has a strong distinctive flavour. This is a really popular cheese in these parts, so much so that we sell over 100kgs every Christmas! Worcester Hop has a really tangy flavour and is really smooth and creamy.
This cheese has been present on the base of a many a wedding cheese cake, it looks great with all the hops and as it's such a popular one, seems to go down very well to a wide variety of tastes.
Please note, the size of the Hop has recently changed. All of the sizes are a little narrower and taller.
A whole 4kg Hereford Hop 21.5cm x 10cm. (Picture 6)
We often cut them in half across the middle so you can have a circle that is 21.5cm x 5cm high (picture 3).
You can also get a 2kg whole circle which is about 18.5cm x 6.5cm.
Lastly, a 1kg semi circle, which matches well with a Whittington Oak for a base of a little cake (picture 4) - we sell a lot of these for birthday parties and smaller weddings. (picture 4)

Amazing cheese that is hard to find
My husband and I found this delicious cheese during a trip to Ludlow years ago when we stumbled across The Mouse Trap Cheese Shop but we hadn't been able to find it since. That is until we found the shop online so ordered 500g alongside a selection of different cheese for Christmas. All were delightfully received and enjoyed. The online experience was a smooth process and delivery was as expected, packaged well (and environmentally friendly) and the Worcester Hop amongst others was amazing. We would definitely recommend a visit to The Mouse Trap Cheese shop, online and in-person and look forward to buying more Worcester Hop in the future!
