A tremendous sense of history at this excellent cheese shop, which opened it's doors for the first time just down the road at number 18 in 1797.
Whilst there are no more Paxton's or Whitfield's at the helm, the tradition of selling the best cheese, and offering advice on how it should best be kept, remains.
A range of their own chutney, biscuits for cheese, traditional hams, smoked salmon and caviar is also available. A mail order service operates.
