We had a lovely time, thank you. visited Bison and Bird on 11 Feb 2017

The bar was lively, drinks were reasonably priced (especially in happy hour) and the food was also very good. We were there to watch the Six Nations as B&B markets itself as a sports bar - there were a good amount of screens although only a few of the seats at our table had easy line of sight to one, this was frustrating as we'd booked a spot a 2 weeks before and made for an uncomfortable afternoon for half of our group. The commentary of the games was broadcast through the sound system, but at such a low level that it couldn't be heard over the general hum drum of the bar. Despite asking several times for it to be turned up, we were told that it was at full volume - a limitation of the sky box apparently - despite being played through some sizeable club speakers... It made for a good afternoon, and we'd all revisit the bar for sure ... probably not to watch sport though. visited Bison and Bird on 04 Feb 2017

Visited for the Super Bowl night, excellent as usual but suddenly this year we are not to be trusted with our drinks to be served in glasses & were given plastic pint pots instead :( visited Bison and Bird on 05 Feb 2017

It was initially a great night, we had great seats and were easily able to see the multiple TV's. However I was very disappointed with how it ended, the game ended and the presentation was occurring when we were made to move from our seats and forced to watch the presentation from the front of the pub, this got even worse when at 3.30am with the presentation half way through the sound was turned off. Why did we pay for a ticket to not get to see the whole show? James visited Bison and Bird on 05 Feb 2017

We were really disappointed by the customer service at Bison and Bird. Bar staff were very rude and slow- one even did her hair whilst supposedly making a cocktail (which took 15 minutes). However, the food was delicious and came out promptly despite our large group size. visited Bison and Bird on 06 Jan 2017

Good table given to us per booking request which was appreciated. Good was good and timely despite pub being busy. The waitress I experienced at the bar wasn't then friendliest... I asked to open a tab as we planned to order numerous rounds of food and drinks and she said no. Next round, I sent my friend to the bar with my bank card and hey presto he came back with a tab! visited Bison and Bird on 03 Dec 2016

I made a booking through your online reservations turned up and was told they had no knowledge of my booking luckily it wasn't busy so managed to get a table only got a half hearted apology from manager. Almost ruined my birthday evening and it made me feel embarrassed in front of my friends and family who were invited to share my evening. Won't ever return. visited Bison and Bird on 08 Nov 2016

Wasn't very impressed. The place has definitely changed as I used to come here often and always had a good time. Was having a birthday gathering so thought I'd order in a couple platters, was told at the bar that they no longer do them? I bought 4 jugs of cocktails that all tasted of juice and nothing else. The music was really bad and was made worse by the most tinney sound system I have ever come across. Everyone commented on how bad it sounded, how could a bar have such a poor system? I left with a headache. Would not recommend this place anymore. visited Bison and Bird on 15 Oct 2016

Despite booking online with a confirmation our table has been booked, we turned up with our names not being on the list. Although most managers would of sent us packing, the manager at b&b took time to actually checked if there were any free tables, having hearing the news that there were no free tables available. The manager then suggested to bring a table from outside for us to seat down and eat which they cleaned down with an excellent view of their projector screen. Considering this was happening while the England game was on. I would like to thank everyone at B&b for making my time there enjoyable and have recommended a few more friends to go there. Great environment, friendly staff and excellent food too! Sunny visited Bison and Bird on 12 Mar 2016

You've asked for a review - what do you want me to say?!? I cancelled the booking because somebody at Bison & Bird promised to phone me back and confirm they were screening the boxing on Saturday night - they never did! rhowardc visited Bison and Bird on 27 Feb 2016

Booked a table for superbowl party, was placed miles away from a tiny screen. Food was poor - greasy burgers and wings were of the standard you get frozen from Iceland. To cap it all they served us a drink at the end and the bouncers immediately came round and told us we had four minutes until we had to leave Tim visited Bison and Bird on 07 Feb 2016

Thank you so much for helping me throw one of the best parties I've thrown for my birthday! It was awesome! I had almost 30 people come, and that was partly because of the venue! There was a small problem with the actual table booked which was sorted out really quickly and we all had a fantastic time! Thank you!

We arranged an evening for a stag diner and drinks before Infernos. The team at Bison and Bird were amazing. From arranging pre order drinks and nibbles to the night itself. We arrived a little early but the team had no problems accommodating us. Johnny (?the manager) was fantastic as was our (dedicated) waitress. The venue really is great, we reserved the back long tables which were perfect for everyone. I cannot recommend this venue enough, food drinks and staff were spot on. We had reviewed all the other venues in Clapham before and this was by far the best in terms of venue and food and atmosphere. Thank you!

The Bison and Bird is styled like an American roadhouse, sporting dark woods and scarlet red walls, it's not the typical kind of establishment you'd find in Clapham Common. The atmosphere is equally rich, by night the bar is lively, with notably fun and friendly cliental. The restaurant staff however, ’huffed’ when approached and only vaguely pointed us in the direction of a free table (that was covered in spilled candle wax and pieces of dirty, ripped up napkin.) The food similarly failed to reach even a mediocre standard; I had to return my first dish (a risotto of gorgonzola, baby leaf spinach and pine nuts) for mistaking it as a humourlessly tasteless bowl of triple-churned vomit. An inexperienced waitress giggled that ‘everyone complained about it’, whilst another argued that 'it was fine' and insinuated I didn’t have a legitimate reason for returning it - she was not prepared to refund me anything and wanted me to pay for my second meal. After some time the waitress did return, apologise, and took both meals off of the bill. Food aside, we continued our night there: and gladly. Bison and Bird serve great mojitos. From classic fresh mint and lime to Raspberry and passion-fruit, they are really good - and even better, they’re all just £3.00, all night, every Thursday. Boasting an exciting and dynamic atmosphere, and at this price, it's the justifiable way of enjoying that mid-week drink.

Maybe somewhere for a drink at the beginning of a night but would never again go here for food. AWFUL service - food arrived in dribs and drabs after an hour of waiting and was luke warm, average drinks, shocking food, horrendous atmosphere - they started doing DIY and using a powertool to buff the bar whilst we were eating. The only saving grace is the manager was very apologetic and handled our complaints effectively. Not even worth one star

have to agree with the previous reviewer, one of my least favourite clapham venues - always packed to the brim and playing rubbish music....defo one to avoid on a sat night. The only saving grace this place has got is that it has a huge projector style screen that they show the rugby and football on.

Not one of my favourite bars in Clapham, normally filled up to the brim, not much space to let your hair down and lacks that xfactor feeling when you are in the bar.
