welcome to slate
Slate is a specialist cheese retailer and delicatessen in the bustling Suffolk seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold.
Formerly known as Lawson’s Delicatessen in Aldeburgh, we have changed our name to Slate and opened a new shop in Southwold.
Our new name encapsulates our passion for cheese and delicious food and drink provisions. Quality cheese is at the heart of what we offer, alongside our prepared meals and salads, bread, charcuterie, olives, chutneys and preserves.
Cheese of the Month
Tastings and Events
Father Christmas will be switching on the town's Christmas lights at 5pm. All afternoon we will be celebrating the festive season with mince pies and of course cheese! We will also be joined by Ferndale Cheeses, makers of our November cheese of the month Ruby Dapple.
Back in Orford at The King's Head with the brilliant team of Adnams Aldeburgh, this will be an evening of festive fun with a selection of very special cheeses to include on your Christmas table and the celebratory wines to match.
