But it just returns no titles whatsoever. Am I being a bit thick?
Ideally, what I want to do is exclude all books tagged "ignore". Is that possible?
Your search syntax is incorrect. The server expects that quotes surround words, not operators ('=' is an operator). This is different from calibre, which expects the text after the colon to be quoted. In addition, there is no need to use quotes if the search text contains no white space.
In your case, use
$config['restrict_display_to'] = array('fred'=>'tags:=ignore');
$config['restrict_display_to'] = array('fred'=>'tags:="ignore"');
