“Good Value”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Pub / restaurant set just outside city centre. Inside or outside seating with tranquil garden surroundings. Food & service was good & overall a positive experience. If you're looking for decent food & service at reasonable prices this is the place to be!

“Best steak in town - most of the time!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

The Bull and Bush is one of those places where you'll find people who have been in Gaborone ten days or ten years! The food is usually great, especially the steaks, but make sure it's on a hot plate as they're often underdone.

They try to keep you coming back with a variety of events such as live music or a farmer's market. I was recently at a kids party on a Sunday afternoon which worked surprisingly well, despite part of the jungle gym collapsing.

The service varies, but most staff and management are excellent, which is not the norm in Gabs. With it's central location and extensive, well-priced menu it's a great place to meet friends and family pretty much any time of the day or week.

“Service is pretty fast good for quick lunch”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Outside or indoor seating. Good for quick lunch. Has a childrens play area. In the evening the bar comes more into play. Sometimes there is live entertainment which can be very loud if you are sitting near.

“Food not that great”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We stopped by at 6pm on a Wednesday night. It got pretty full around 8pm and they had a pub quiz going on inside. We ordered some food from sirloins to pizza, however it was very disappointing and was not at all to our taste and expectations. Service was good and managers came around (before the food) to ask if everything was fine. We did not stay that long, just was not that nice of an atmosphere...
