Paxton & Whitfield’s first business transaction is recorded in 1797 from their shop in St James, but the company’s origins can be traced back to market stall in Aldwych as early as 1742. In the subsequent 200 years and more, the business has accrued such sterling accolades as the possession of Royal Warrants, and a glowing recommendation from none other than Winston Churchill – “A gentleman buys his hats at Locks, his shoes at Lobbs, his shirts at Harvey and Hudson, his suits at Huntsman and his cheese at Paxton & Whitfield”. Today, Paxton & Whitfield still has its iconic premises in Jermyn Street and shops in Stratford upon Avon and Bath. Our warehouse and mail order department can be found in Bourton on the Water, Gloucestershire. We are in partnership with celebrated Parisian Fromagerie Androuet in whose branches we stock a range of the best British cheeses, and who in return recommend and provide our stunning range of French cheese.
With its iconic black and gold frontage and enticing, gourmet window, the Paxton & Whitfield store in Jermyn Street is the oldest and best recognised of our branches. It satisfies the cheese demands of retail and wholesale customers alike with exceptional expertise, customer service and of course, a plethora of the highest quality cheeses, matured on site in the underground cheese cellars. For many, it plays an un-missable part in a traditional Christmas, where the winding queue of expectant customers must be negotiated in order to take home one of the finest examples of Stilton to be found.
