There are certain things, like the word ‘fizzy’, or the music Slayer make, that are exactly as they sound. The Cheese Bar in Camden’s Stables Market is just that as well. It serves cheese, lots of cheese - you can have a fondue on the counter, a five cheese macaroni outside, or a grilled cheese to go. As the bar in the name suggests, this is more of a quick bite spot rather than anything more, and it’s best to keep things simple with sandwiches and sticks, as other dishes tend to underwhelm.
