Paxton & Whitfield

Paxton & Whitfield Review

In business for more than 200 years, this venerable and aromatic London shop stocks hundreds of the world's greatest artisinal cheeses, particularly British and French varieties (a homesick General de Gaulle shopped here during World War II). The cheeses are laid on straw on refrigerated shelves, with tasting samples set out on a marble-top counter. You can pick up some ham, pâté, condiments, preserves, wine, or port, as well as cheese-related accessories like boards or knives.
