Paxton & Whitfield

You can’t serve great cheese without great biscuits, of course.

So who better to team up with than one of the oldest-established cheese specialists in the country. We’ll be matching one of their superb range of biscuits to each of our regional hampers, and to complement our Warwickshire choices of Berkswell and Fowler’s, we have gone with Paxton & Whitfield’s Celery & Sea Salt Oaties. Handmade with locally sourced rolled oats from County Armagh and palm oil from a certified sustainable source, the sharpness of the celery and the crunchy sea salt create a delicious contrast to the nutty taste of the oats.

The company set up its first cheesemongers in London’s Jermyn Street in 1797, and still has its flagship shop there today. Over the years, building its reputation for great products and quality service (not to mention royal appointments going all the way back to Queen Victoria), it has continued to expand, with a second London shop in Cale Street, a shop in Bath, and its head office and maturing rooms in Bourton-on-the-Water in the Cotswolds, from where it services its online orders.
