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.

Adjoining the shop, our dining room offers a warm welcome to visitors from near and far – for coffee and cake, high tea, a hot luncheon – whatever takes your fancy…

We also offer a range of catering services including Traditional Buffets, Formal Luncheons, Outside Events, Picnic Hampers, Afternoon Teas, Birthday Parties, Hog Roasts, Marquee & Equipment hire.

Our restaurant  is also available for private hire in the evening.  Please contact us at bookings@theoriginalmaidsofhonour.co.uk.
