At Newens | The Original Maids of Honour on the Kew Road, we’ve been keeping traditional baking skills alive for over 150 years. And our history dates back even further – to Tudor times and the dainty little tarts 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…
ALL ONLINE ORDERS ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY AT THE TIME OF PACKING
