Great food, poor wait staff

We went here on a Monday afternoon for a light lunch. The food was very good but we had to go in and request refills because of inattentive staff. During the hours we were there we talked with the very charming owner and still had to call back for refills. Justin is a great owner and a great person... read more

Went here for afternoon drinks during a stay at nearby self catering facility. Friendly staff and nice setting with outside area, covered and uncovered, sports on screens, and a mixed crowd. We had a good time, so decided to go here for breakfast the next day. Proper food, attentive waiters, and good coffee with extras as hot water to dilute... More

Great menu, friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. We were looking to have a light lunch, so Bush Pub seemed like the obvious choice. I had a yummy Toastie from the Kiddies menu (R25 and was charged R35). Great outside area. We went back the next evening. looking forward to dinner but sadly they were closed (though Tourism website says... More

This is a great place for a family lunch or dinner. Their steaks are fantastic, fish is awesome and fresh on a Tuesday and deserts change often so always something new to be had.

The Bush Pub in Tulbagh is not fine dining, but the burgers were good. The service was good even though it was quite late and the waiters had had a busy day. Nice local pub and casual atmosphere, so if you fancy a bite to eat, try the Bush Pub!

Got there no one greeted us. We just sat down waited ten minutes. No one served us so I went to the bar no one was there. Came back to the table and the waitress said she would be with us in one minute. Never saw her again. So we left after about twenty minutes. Awful service.

We had the fish, and it was nice the waitress could have been a little bit friendlier, but she was the only one working and it was busy, one negative: there was no desert left at 20h30, very bad

The service was friendly, but not very good. My wife and i went for lunch and waited AGES for a burger and a pancake. The food was average. There are nicer places to go, even in main road. (We did NOT go to a show there, so that might be quite good)

Clifton C, Owner at Bravo Cafe & Bush Pub, responded to this review

By default we ask all diners if their meals were satisfactory and unfortunately, these folk did not bring any complaints to our attention. We do admit that we don't serve fast food. Everything is made up from scratch and while it takes a little longer, most diners appreciate the time, effort and passion we put into our food. This is... More
