The Original Maids of Honour, a traditional bakery and atmospheric restaurant in Kew Gardens, London, was founded  in 1887.

We recently re-designed the website to reflect how this much-loved business had moved on into the next millennium. Our clients are  immensely proud of its heritage and were passionate about keeping the history alive. The same traditional methods and recipes used in the last century are still used in the original bakery today.

Working with a copywriter who researched the fascinating history (which stretched back to Henry Vlll), and using archived photography with new photography – managed to retain the ‘old world’ feel of this lovely business.
