The Original Maids of Honour

At The Original Maids of Honour on the Kew Road, we’ve been keeping traditional baking skills alive for over 120 years. And our history dates back even further – to Tudor times and the dainty little cakes we’re named after.

Legend has it that ‘Maids of Honour’ were brought to notoriety by Henry VIII who so loved their ‘melt-in-the-mouth’ sensation, he took the recipe and kept it under lock and key at Richmond Palace!

Today these delectable pastries are still served warm from our ovens – with a wide variety of other sweet and savoury treats all made by hand to traditional recipes using fresh, natural ingredients.
