When you first walk into Maggie Jones’s you’re not sure if you’ve stumbled on to the set of Poldark, or into the stash house of The Great Rocking Horse Robbery of 1922. As much as we love the nicknacks, it’s the menu of British classics - dishes like the apple sauce smeared roast belly of pork, guinea fowl in white wine sauce, and a grilled rack of English lamb - that keeps us coming back. This is a great date spot, because Maggie Jones, whoever she may be, is a romantic. There’s enough candles, hidden booths and Bordeaux wines on offer, that by the end of the night you won’t care where the rocking horses came from, you’ll just feel like you’ve met an old friend, in restaurant form, and be entirely ready to book a table to do it all again.
