Paxton & Whitfield

In business for over 200 years, the last 100 of those on this site, Paxton & Whitfield sells a wide range of British and continental European cheeses, plus excellent hams, biscuits and real ale. Service is exemplary and delightfully unstuffy – a rare pleasure on Jermyn Street. Among the unusual English varieties to look out for are Oxford isis (washed in mead), caradon blue from Cornwall and naturally smoked ‘ceodre’ cheddar, and the shop now has an extended range of French cheeses, courtesy of Androuet, a traditional Parisian cheese shop. P&W is also known for its celebration ‘cheese cakes’ – contrasting tiers of artisan cheese rounds made to look like traditional wedding cakes. They also now serve sandwiches at lunchtime.

The oldest and most fantastic cheese shop in London ,this is the place to go if you have a cheesy craving. Me and my mum shop here every year for Christmas day where there is a huge cue coming out of the shop as people wait to taste and buy cheeses from all around the world. Despite the cue the people still let you try whatever cheese you like and take the time to make suggestions. You feel like an important customer despite the huge crowd around you and everyone is given that time and the effort is made. I love the selection they have going from epoisse to gorgonzola; you can go around the world here and find some of the most luxurious cheeses about. I have to say this is my favorite cheese place to buy cheese but it is an occasion as it is pretty expensive and far too tempting to buy loads.
