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 a market stall in Aldwych as early as 1742.
Winston Churchill once said, "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 you can buy the best of British cheeses at the oldest Paxton & Whitfield store in Jermyn Street.
