The Cheese Bar to open Funk, a cheese shop on Columbia Road

23/10/20 - updated with the opening date and pics

Not happy with a cheese truck, a cheese bar, a cheese conveyor belt and a cheese barge - the team behind all those wonderful things has opened a cheese shop. 

Called Funk, expect the shop to have a strong focus on British cheese and, as it's specifically a cheese and bottle shop, there will be plenty of wine to pair with your cheese.

It's taken over the space that used to hold A Portuguese Love Affair (which is still running from Hackney Road). On a post on Instagram, they say "After the success of our cheese selling antics during lockdown, and with Christmas fast approaching, we thought it would be a good time to get into retailing cheese proper!". And judging from the pic below, there is quite the selection of cheese and charcuterie on offer.
