British Cheese Week: Survey Reveals The Nation's Favourite Cheese

When a cheese board arrives, do you pounce on the parmesan or fight your friends for some feta?

To mark British Cheese Week, the nation’s favourite cheese has been revealed in a survey of 2,000 people.

And it turns out, the cheese we just can't get enough of is (drumroll please).....

Cheddar.

That's right, us Brits absolutely love of the versatile cheese, with 80% of people surveyed naming it as their favourite.
