Maggie Jones's - London

November 09, 2003

This has to be one of London's better kept secrets, hidden in a tiny side street off Kensington Church St.

When I saw the sign I imagined a small American diner and wasn't very impressed with Pedro's suggestion.

I was well surprised to see that inside was a three floor mansion with a very rustic and charming decor; intimate booths in the basement for a romantic first date and a lower and first floor with various sized tables, booths and a banquette table (seats 16).

The menu is a meat feast. While there are classics like filets, saddle of lamb and rump stakes, there is also a lot of game. Choose between rabbit, ostrich, duck and venison.

My Scottish fillet with a rich mushroom sauce was just fantastic. The beef was tender like butter and the dish had a cozy home made feeling to it. Probably the best meat I have had in London during the last 3 years. The deserts are massive and include classics like apple crumble pie and bread and butter pudding.

A main dish is around £15, deserts are £4.50 and there is a set three course menu for £23 if you are hungry.

Maggie Jones's has an interesting concept for serving wine. It comes in large 1.5l jars and keeps coming until you are ready to pay the bill. You pay only for what you drink
