Speculation that a VIP cheese room would be a feature of Spurs’ new ground has been ended after the club confirmed that one will not be built.
The prospect of such an inclusion was reportedly mentioned at a stadium preview presentation more than two years ago.
One of the first things you learn in the building trade is don’t make a room entirely out of cheese. https://t.co/HyA3nMynHr

It was said that fans would be able to “to select their own specially sourced half-time cheeses”.
But The Guardian has now revealed that they have been informed there will be no cheese room.
Due to the recent news regarding the lack of a cheese room in the new stadium, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club would like to announce a Farmers Market in the car park on every second Sunday of the month. pic.twitter.com/SrhNz2Kewl

Tottenham also apparently suggested to the paper they were never intending to create one in the first place.
These were the best Spurs cheese puns after the decision was announced:
First they rename the Bell and Hare and now this. I camembert it… https://t.co/3JXlnflMOh

Doubt any proper spurs fan gives a edam about no cheese room in the new place. Only the more rich & mature fans who wanted it anyways.

I'm sure they thought very Caerphilly about this decision.
Sadly it has gone by the cheese board. https://t.co/adPGakER6x
