If you like cheese, Paxton & Whitfield is the name to know. The shop on Jermyn Street goes all the way back to 1797, but even that stems from a market stall set up in 1742. That’s 278 years of cheese mongering experience, and an absolutely mountain of cheese that’s passed through this shop’s doors. It even holds two Royal Warrants, one from the Prince of Wales and one from Her Maj herself. If it’s good enough for royalty, it’s good enough for us. Pop in for English and French cheeses and anything and everything you could imagine to accompany them, from the company’s absolutely banging chutneys and pickles to every kind of cracker under the sun. And your choice of cracker is almost as important as the cheese, you know.
