Preheat the oven to 375°F.
In a large bowl sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Cut cold cubes of butter into the flour mixture until the butter is completely incorporated and the mixture has obtained a fine, mealy texture.
Add the cheese and black pepper and mix together until well combined.
Fold in the buttermilk and mix together until just combined and the mixture has formed into a dough.
Form the dough into 2 discs and place in fridge for about 30 minutes.
Once chilled, flatten the disc to about ½ inch thick and cut each into 8 wedges.
Brush tops of each scone with a small amount of cream and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the scones puff up and the tops just start to brown.
Serve warm with a side of honey.
