Comfort Food

WC Bloomsbury, Clapham's Sister venue continues the legacy of beguiling and bewitching spaces, descending from unassuming entrances on pedestrian level in an Ex Victorian Water Closet. Listed on Historic England’s 'buildings at risk register’ we have preserved and respected the 120 year old space, paying homage to the surrounding area’s rich history, creating a warm and inviting wine and charcuterie bar.

The venue offers rest and respite from the streets of London, with a considered drinks menu that has something for everyone - be that a glass from the thoughtful, simple and everchanging wine list with over 30 sold by the glass or from a list of 16 signature cocktails.

WC Bloomsbury’s food offering has been created to complement the drink selection. Charcuterie and cheese is sacred here, served with homemade chutneys and pickles, perfect for grazing. A selection of small plates and several plant based options to cater for all palates.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

    Very good idea and friendly staff, couple of things.... the smell of food is overwhelming, like hot oil, there seems to be no extraction, that was a bit much. There was very little food available and what we did have felt a little overpriced

    We had an amazing time. The place is absolutely amazing and the wine and food were of high standards. The service was great and we could really feel that our waitress knew the products well. She gave us some good advice on the wine. I would definitely come back either for a date night or for a nice dinner with a small group of friends.

    Loved this place! Great atmosphere, lovely food and fabulous wine. Super-cool quirky venue (loved the background music too - including Bowie/Springsteen/The Rolling Stones when I was there)-would certainly recommend an evening here, especially if you want a wine bar out of the ordinary.

    Strange how from one week to the next, a venue that was great became disappointing. Food & cocktails consistent, however the service was woeful. Hope there's improvement by the next visit.

    Well what an evening! Absolutely fabulous with service that is second to none. The cocktails were delicious and even personalised if necessary by the skilful bar staff. Food was a real passion for the chef and this was evident in taste and presentation. Such an eclectic place to enjoy an evening! Definitely be back! Special mention to Keira who makes sure your visit is special, nothing is too much trouble.

    Loved this place. Great food and service in a very relaxed atmosphere. Main thing I was worried about was noise given the venue and tiling but the wooden booths deadened the echo perfectly. Couldn’t fault the place - will be back!

    I came here for a casual date and we both had an amazing time! The staff were super friendly and helpful — especially when it came to helping us choose a wine. They even let us sample a few before finally choosing. We also got the cheeseboard, which we shared between us. Overall it was a lovely experience, and I would definitely recommend it or go again sometime.
