I have a bit of (a weird) obsession with ‘public toilets’ especially historic ones (see previous posts) so I was busting to go to WC at Clapham Common.
I do adore a cheese board, and this one was cheese board/meat board heaven in a heavenly setting.
Sat literally on top of Clapham Common station these converted old toilets perfect that chic shabby look whilst feeling sanitary enough to dive in to the yummy cheeses and meats they specialise in. Lots of dark wood, mirrors and mosaic flooring. The layout is very good and seats more that you would imagine for a small place. Even comes completed with curtained booths, perfect for a romantic date.
The night we went, was a scorcher, so it was good to hide underground, however for those who want to enjoy the summer evenings they even have a sizable garden’ area to seat plenty more.
As we sat and enjoyed our wine (our hostess boasted that they carefully selected the best wines, we ordered the house white, which went down a bit too well) we watched as they chopped charcuterie and cheese and served up plate after plate. Ours consisted of a range of meats (they did tell us what they were, but I only remember one was rabbit) whatever it was it was exceptionally tasty. And pretty reasonably priced too.
As far as converted toilets go, this has gone on my ‘favourites’ list. I am busting to go back, I highly recommend you pay a visit to WC too.
