About company

The original Partridges was opened on 25th May 1972 by Sir Richard Shepherd in the fashionable area of Sloane Street in Chelsea, and quickly gained a reputation for selling the best quality foods from British producers and importing food and wines from all over the world.

Today, Partridges is still very much a family-run business with Sir Richard’s brother, John Shepherd, now the Managing Director. In fact, it is one of the few remaining family-run food shops in Central London and still cherishes its original idea of providing the very finest quality foods.

Partridges was awarded its Royal Warrant in 1994 by Appointment to HM The Queen. Today, firms that hold the Royal Warrant include grocers like Partridges, wine merchants, chemists, plumbers, mole catchers and dressmakers. The distinguishing feature, no matter the size of the company, is to provide the highest standards of service.
