Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

It’s evolution more than revolution for this late-night watering hole after its refit in 2017. The rough and ready spirit remains, with a cleaner aesthetic and a lot more light shining in. Maggie’s always had its groove in the darkness – now it feels nicer during the day. The new menu’s focus is dirty burgers (brioche bun, big juicy pattie) with a gallus commitment to finding the musical reference in everything – ‘The Sabbath’ is topped with black pudding and blue cheese, ‘Whisky A Go Go’ has haggis and whisky peppercorn sauce. Rich, sticky-sweet and full-on tastes define the food, and ‘Hail Seitan’ and ‘Halloui, I Love You’ mean vegetarians are invited to the party as well. What’s brand new is downstairs. Inspired by PING in London, we have King Pong, a table tennis bar with equal part student and work night out appeal. That’s until 10pm, and 5pm Fri/Sat. After that, this gaff is (still) all about the great and the good of the city centre coming to let loose while most everywhere else has shut. Beer flows, guitars play. It’s only rock ’n’ roll, but we like it.
