Maggie Jones's

Charles Brodie was the founder of Maggie Jones restaurant in the early 60s. In those days he was a revolutionary in design and restaurant décor. The stripped pine and scrubbed tables gave a cottage kitchen feel .Charles with a stickler for freshly grown vegetables and home-grown meat, and this I am glad to see continued even after his death in December 2002 .Maggie Jones restaurant is not for the fainthearted. The portions have always been generous to say the least, and good brisk walk around Kensington Gardens will give you an appetite to match their delicious traditional dishes .And yes, it is true that Princess Margaret, and the then Tony Armstrong Jones were frequent diners. There was a rumour that they used a take-away service on Thursdays when the Palace Cook had her day off. I have been eating here for over 40 years the food is just as good as always, as is the service. It gives me a good excuse to catch a flight from Marseille to London every now and again
