Somerset Ploughmen at Southbank Centre

Somerset Ploughmen bring the finest jams, cheeses and ciders direct from Somerset growers and producers to London.

The company is owned by Henry Hobhouse, who farmed cider apples in Somerset for 21 years.

Visit their stall for a range of chutneys, curds, jams and pickles from Cherry Tree and cheeses from Barbers of Ditcheat, Montgomery, Somerset Cheese company and Cricket St Thomas.

And if you’re thirsty, there’s proper Somerset cider from Burrow Hill (famous as the cider bus supplier from Glastonbury), a lovely perry, or try something stronger from the Somerset Cider Brandy Company. They also sell a range of interesting soft drinks.
