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.
SLATE CHEESE CLUB: SPECIAL OFFER FOR FATHER'S DAY
This month to celebrate Father's Day we have a special offer of a complimentary month with any six month subscription taken out before the end of June, so you'll get cheese right through to 2019.
Membership of our Cheese Club makes the perfect gift for tricky to buy for Dads! This Father's Day why not give the gift of cheese delivered to his door. Each month we put together a carefully selected trio of cheeses including our "cheese of the month" and a box of crackers. Your dad will be able to discover new cheeses alongside old favourites.
