Delicious food and a late licence makes Fouronine the best place in South London for long, leisurely dinners

Where? 409 Clapham Road, Clapham, London SW9 9BT (020 7737 0722,

Mood? Smart, stylish and secluded – draws a great crowd but feels exclusive.

Who goes? Keep an eye out for the odd celeb – we spotted a very dishy ex-Coronation street actor when we visited.

To eat? Perfectly light starters, melt in the mouth Chateaubriand and delectable desserts mean you will want three courses!

To drink? Fabulous cocktails like the Rossini (strawberry puree, crème de fraise and champagne) and an impressive wine list.

Need to know? Chef Iain Smart is previously from Chez Bruce so the food is understandably superb. A late license at the weekend means you can stay for a drink or two after your meal – very good if you are too full to move!
