    A great little place with a fine selection of great cheese, cold meats, a selection of hot dishes and even desserts. The drinks list is interesting and they offer reasonable prices for the wine. We had six excellent cheeses from Europe and Australia, excellent olives and the superb chicken liver pate. A good bottle of Pinot Noir washed it down. The service was friendly, helpful and tolerant. It was a good night and we will be back.

    Staff were very warm and helpful with the many cheese options on the menu & food was amazing!! Try the house made soda if you're not a big wine drinker

    Food and meat board was really great. Staff were helpful in helping us choose what cheese and meats we wanted. Would suggest to go with slightly more people so you can try more different cheeses! Slightly on the expensive side but would go again (just can't afford to go often)

    good vibe, great diversity of cheese meats and wine. Cheese servings a bit small to be honest but the diversity of what they can offer is really good

    The cheese and meat platters, and mushroom tart were delicious! The red wine the waiter suggested was also lovely and complimented our platter selection. Great place! Can't wait to visit again!

    Loved cheese platter and desserts, didn't like the main dishes as much. Lamb shoulder wasn't as good as I had expected it would be for the price they charge and the other main dish didn't have much flavour. Drinks were also very average, I tried 3 different drinks. Would still go back for cheese and dessert and trying more of their drinks.

    We really loved this place! Being huge cheesaholics we were thrilled to be sitting at the Bar where all the cheese platter prep was being done. Very informative and interesting. Similarly for the cold meat platter option. We will definitely be coming back.....there are so many more cheeses to try!!!

    We had a great lunch here. The service was friendly and fun and the staff know their meats and cheeses. Their beautiful cellar has something to compliment every selection. Just opposite the Enmore, it is a great place to sit, eat, drink and watch the Newton crowd stroll by. We'll be back for sure and soon !

About the restaurant

Cheesy goodness

Wine & Cheese. The two go hand in hand. And Sydney’s food scene is taking note. Fromageries, wine bars and hybrids of the two are popping up in pockets all over town. The Stinking Bishops is a Newtown cheesemonger-cum-wine bar. Named after a British washed rind cheese, legendary for its hefty pong you won’t find great big glass displays of cheese here. What you will find is a wall of Australian and imported cheese and staff willing to have a chat about them. The eat in menu showcases the cheese products in exciting ways. Take for example their spin on a croque monsieur, made with Gruyere, Barossa Valley smoked wagyu, house-made pickles and horseradish mayonnaise or the the slow-cooked beef cheeks with manchego and creamed corn. More simple options such as cheese and charcuterie boards are also part of the mix. Match these with local wines and you’re in for one perfect cheesy evening. This place is like Willy Wonka’s factory, but for cheese lovers - and it will make all of your fromage dreams come true.

Best dish: mushroom 'Mr Crispy' sandwich - field mushrooms, enoki, thyme mayo and taleggio Cheese
