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.
