“Cosy, fun, old place that has been around for years and years” – a favourite in its time of Princess Margaret, who used to slip away to here from nearby Kensington Palace, and whose alias when booking provides the current restaurant’s name. Its rustic, heavily-romantic style isn’t dissimilar to its stablemate, La Poule au Pot, and it likewise serves “basic, traditional English dishes” designed to satisfy your hunger at a “decent price” rather than to dazzle your tastebuds. “There’s a reasonable wine list too, unless you go for the magnum where they measure with a stick how much of it you’ve taken from the bottle: amusing to say the least but not their best vintage…”
Limited feedback this year on this “romantic” stalwart near Kensington Palace (named after the pseudonym Princess Margaret used to use when booking here). Such as there is supports the view that the main reason to visit is the date-potential of the charming, faux-rustic decor, rather than the indifferently rated Anglo-French bistro fare.
“You can hide in the booths and hold hands” at this eccentric, extremely “romantic”, rustic-style operation near Kensington Palace (named after the pseudonym Princess Margaret once used here). The dated Gallic cooking is “average for the price”, but only those with the hardest hearts “are surprised there are really so many first dates looking for novelty decor and uneven staircases?”
“Eccentric but fun”, this enduring “hideaway” near Kensington Palace (named after the pseudonym Princess Margaret used to book under) is “reminiscent of a cluttered farmhouse” and ever-so romantic. “The only thing on the menu which has changed since 1976 are the prices. It’s nursery comfort food for maiden aunts (and nothing wrong with that!)”
Maggie Jones’s has been a favourite haunt among Kensington locals for over 40 years. Cosy, rustic, informal and incurably romantic, the restaurant is tucked away in a little cul-de-sac between Kensington High Street and Kensington Church Street.
Maggie’s is warm, friendly and traditional, with a generous menu full of classic dishes, beautifully cooked.
