Any restaurant rated as ‘perfect for spies and/or affairs’ gets an entry in our notebook, & Maggie Jones’s certainly manages to live up to its ‘private & romantic’ billing. The frontage is adorned with bright red blooms, & inside is a mishmash of trinkets, brass pots & pans, flickering candles & wonky stairs. Despite the lush surrounds, the menu plays it straight, steering a course through the well-tried British repertoire with, say, rack of lamb with rosemary & garlic or stuffed roast chicken with tarragon sauce. The ‘game of the day’ could be medallions of venison with a West Riding sauce, while starters keep it simple with duck-liver pâté or a smoked salmon & crab parcel. House wine is served from a magnum, & diners are merely charged for what they drink – a cute touch.
