A recent addition to the list of local hangouts is Stonhouse, a pub and restaurant just near the Clapham Picture House in Clapham. The place has a nice, relaxed feel to it and the food is excellent value and very good which is why it is one of Matt and Tom's favourites. Service is also very good and there is a good selection of drinks given it is a pub. On this visit we were without Matt as he was in Malaysia for work so it was just the three of us for a relaxing Friday night dinner before the movies.

To start with, Dave had the potted confit duck which was very tasty, whilst Tom and I shared an antipasti plate which was very generous and definitely enough for sharing. For mains, Tom had the four cheese gnocchi which was very rich but yum; Dave had the spit roast pork belly with plenty of crispy skin which is never a bad thing; and I had a steak and ale pie with mash. The meals were huge and for the price (£11-13 for our dishes) it was amazing value. Unfortunately as we were so full, we were unable to squeeze any desserts in so I will definitely have to come back again to sample more from the menu. Good pick Matt & Tom!
