Very interesting buildings with a unique feel. Great food and good value for money with the two or three course lunch specials. Try the onion soup!

I was really looking forward to dinner with my husband and my teenage daughter at Maggie Jones's, for which I made a reservation a couple of weeks in advance. The restaurant turned out to be quite bigger that it looked, with three floors of tables. We were seated on the ground floor, which was empty except for a large table of stylish young people celebrating a birthday. Our table was a poorly lit booth in the farthest corner, so we asked to be moved to another table. The waiter's immediate answer was no, then said he'd be right back and returned two minutes later to say that, no, we couldn't sit at another table. So we stayed at our poorly lit table, even though the restaurant was never full, even after we left. Also, they never offered the day's specials to us, even though they did to the other tables. My guess is that maybe we were underdressed? I can't really find an explanation for this behavior towards us.

Except for this setback, dinner was outstanding. Really tasty British dishes served with warm bread which absolutely lived up to our expectations. I would definitely love to come back for another try (in a dress and high heels, maybe?)

We had such a great meal this afternoon at Maggie Jones's! The staff were so accommodating, finding us a table on the ground floor as one of the group had a bad knee. Then the service was fantastic, the waiter was extremely attentive with a great sense of humour. The food was delicious and we just loved the decor. Maggie Jones's is such a welcoming and friendly place and we will definitely be back soon!

We have been coming every year from Yorkshire to celebrate our anniversary in London. And a meal here is an annual event. We absolutely love the restaurant. The food is superb and the service impeccable. OK - it’s not a restaurant for those on a budget, but if you don’t mind spending around £70 a head for 3 courses and wine, you won’t regret it.

The food here is very good, the service was good and a nice ambience. My only complaint was the prices, which I thought were a bit on the high side. Wine starts at £29 a bottle. Potatoes, vegetables were all extra. Budget on £100 per couple for two courses.
