Nice outdoor bush pub. great atmosphere. Good service. Food above average Friendly people running the place. Some work to be done on roofs of the restaurant - we visited on a rainy day, and could not stay dry. Very nice experience

Bush Pub is a restaurant and bar about 26 kilometers out of Hoedspruit, towards the east. The location is nice and the setting is so relaxed with a beautiful swimming pool and hammocks between the trees. Great location to watch the rugby and enjoy a cold beer on warm Saturday afternoon.

Had quite a lovely time with great friends right before their wedding. The atmosphere was truly great and the service really good. Would return anyday!

Service is so chill that it is almost non-existent, but was just enough not to feel ignored during a late lunch. Pizza was average, hubby's chips were soggy. Beer was deliciously cold and the atmosphere far from the madding crowd was beyond relaxed, although incredibly hot.

Looking for a chilled pub to chill with friends. Look no further. The bush pub will provide the bush setting, good food (pizza never disappoints) and a bar with wide verity. Enjoy. Chill. Or celebrated.

When we, a party of three, felt like pizza for lunch, my friends took me to the Bush Pub. It is a faiirly short drive from Hoedspruit to find a crispy pizza, cold drinks and shade under the trees accompanied by a good music selection. There was a varied crowd, some people were local, others tourist, and all seemed to... More

We visited the Bush Pub twice during a recent visit to the Timbavati. It is friendly place with good service. On the first occasion we had lunch and the food was quite good. The owner was even prepared to accommodate deviations from the menu items. The second visit was primarily to watch a rugby game and to have a few... More
