The Newens family opened this Maids of Honour shop in Kew in 1860, and it's still here. It is believed that Henry VIII originally coined the term Maids of Honour when he met Ann Boleyn and other Maids of Honour. The shop still sells the Maids of Honour cakes, the recipe of which is a family secret. They also sell freshly made steak, chicken and salmon pies, cream cakes, danish pastries, fruit pies and homemade bread - all cooked on the premises. The tea-room is fully licensed. They also sell homemade chocolates. Lounge on the terrace for use in the summer.
