Welcome to George & Joseph - an award-winning cheesemongers in Chapel Allerton, Leeds.

George & Joseph Cheesemongers was started by Stephen Fleming in 2012.  A lifelong cheese addict, after he moved to Leeds in 2001 he developed a passion for Yorkshire cheeses and locally produced food.

After a first year in business visiting fairs and farmer's markets, George & Joseph opened their first cheese shop in Chapel Allerton, a suburb in North Leeds.

In 2017 we relocated to a larger shop in Chapel Allerton on Harrogate Road, after four years in our first shop.

In 2018 we were named winners in the Best Specialty Cheese Retailer category at the Great British Cheese Awards.

In 2023 we were named winners in the Farm Shop & Deli Awards - Best Small Retailer in the North East of England.

We also won the People's Choice Award at the Academy of Cheese Affineur of the Year competition.

Stephen is also available to host cheese tasting events, and has held talks and tasting events for audiences of all sizes - from a informal get-together for a few friends to corporate events with 200 guests.
