SquareMeal Review of WC

The former Edwardian toilets adjacent to Clapham Common tube now serve as an altogether more appealing public convenience. Wine and charcuterie – ‘WC’: see what they did there? – is the proposition at this candlelit, subterranean watering hole, the brainchild of local lads Jayke Mangion (of Battersea restaurant Entrée) and business partner Andy Bell. There’s room for 50 inside the handsomely appointed space – all black leather banquette booths, original mosaic floors, tiling and skylights – and the same again at street level on a picket-fenced alfresco terrace, set with jolly patio furniture. Select from two dozen wines starting at £20 a bottle (for house Languedoc rouge et blanc) and rising to £50: all available by the glass. The launch menu (set to be expanded) also offers Brixton-brewed beers, charcuterie and fromage boards from £12, plus various salads. Not your bog-standard bar.

So the local WC facilities are now W&C! Converted into a fairly grungy urban look; at least they've removed the stand-up options (apart from a couple remaining in the unisex toilets). Dark booths with old wine cases on the ceiling; prompt service from a waitress all the way from Long island, NY! We ordered a mezze, cheese&meat board, beetroot salad and a Toulouse sausage cassoulet. Quite sufficient for 4, and all freshly prepared and sliced. A bottle of average Argentinian Malbec was a bit much at £36.50 I thought. Pretty busy for a Sunday evening but not too noisy, though the space is quite cramped.
