My new year’s resolution to eat more delicious food continued with a trip to the Stonhouse.

This gastropub is a little bit off the beaten track from the hustle and bustle of Clapham High Street.

I was expecting the pub to be quiet, with everybody banging on about their gym trips on social media, but this was not the case on a Thursday evening.

Your Local Guardian:

My friend and I managed to find a table tucked away in a corner next to an open fire.

It is darkly lit and cosy inside, with exposed beams, brick walls and chic leather banquettes.

Whatsmore, operators Renaissance Pubs are running a 50 per cent off food during weekdays in January.

With that in mind we began with a cocktail, with traditional and more adventurous options on offer.

I opted for a refreshing cucumber cooler, made up of Hendricks gin and cucumber garnish while my guest sipped a lychee liquor.

Your Local Guardian:

A generous portion of vegetarian mezze was served on a large wooden platter, with halloumi, artichokes, home-made hummus and foccacia.

I sampled the parma ham wrapped hake for my main course, served on a bed of ratatouille, swiss chard and cayenne hollandaise.

The hake was a huge portion of chunky fish and the cayenne hollandaise was very moreish.
