Preheat the oven to 220 C / 200 fan / Gas 7.
Into a large mixing bowl sift in the flour then add the butter and rub together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the salt and cheese followed slowly by the milk.
Turn the mixture out onto a floured surface and knead into a soft dough. Lightly push down the dough to a thickness of about 2cm (3/4 in). Cut into squares or rounds with a scone cutter or knife and place on floured baking tray. Sprinkle a pinch or two of cheese on top of each scone.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until risen and golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm or allow to cool on a cooling rack.
