Sorry, The Bush Is Closed! (But we will be back!)

After yesterday’s announcement by the prime minister and talking to local authorities and looking at all the Medical advice I have decided to close the pub for the time being. This is to protect our staff, customers and their families. I would like to take this chance to thank all of our staff and customers for their continued support and kind messages during all of this crisis and hope you all understand this decision. Please follow the advice given in regards to distancing and stay safe, we will all get through this see you on the other side.

Thank You - Rhys

We will see you for a drink or 3 on the other side of this. Thank You

Open Mic Nights will now be on SATURDAYS!!

Open mic Every TuesdayOur popular Open Mic Nights have been run here over a number of years by Adrian Bold and have a well deserved reputation for being both "open", and all inclusive. Unlike many open mic nights that end up with a few people hogging most of the time available, performers and potential performers know that at The Bush, under Adrian's direction, each and every one of them will have a fair opportunity to perform. Whatever your style please come along as early as you can and please make yourself known to Adrian who will ensure that you get the audience time you need!

However it is increasingly clear that some of our Friday band nights audience are not very interested in the open mic nights. Similarly the open mic night regulars, many of them being performers, are not, in general, followers of our band nights. We have also had requests off open mic regulars to have a fixed day, say each month, when they know it will be open mic at The Bush.

PLEASE NOTE From May 2018 until further notice OPEN MIC Nights will be held on the first SATURDAY of each month!

Adrian Bold will continue to lead the Open Mic Nights!

Adrian and I look forward to seeing all our old regulars on these Saturday nights and we welcome your comments on these changes.

Friday Night is Music Night @ The Bush

Every Friday at The Bush we have LIVE MUSIC, usually a band (and good beer) (and the great Pizzas!) (and the nice barmaids) so not come along to the best live music venue in Cwmbran, the best atmosphere, the best bands, the best beer
(Good Beer Guide 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017)
and the best company?
PIZZAS AVAILABLE, hand made and stone baked, arguably the best around, from 6:15 to 9pm.

Coming Soon! (subject to confirmation)

Friday 3rd January "Jamie Thyer and the Worried Men"
Friday 10th January "Big Sky"
Friday 17th January "Space Vipers"
Friday 24th January "Fortunate Sons"

Friday 13th March "The Offshoots"

Why not come early on Fridays and enjoy one of our renowned hand-made stone-baked pizzas with a pint of real ale? (Book Pizzas if you want to be sure) Pizzas from 6:30 to 9:30pm Tuesday and Friday evenings, takeaways welcome!

Acoustic Jam Session. Every Monday from about 8pm. Some good music is being played, why not come along and listen or join in, guitars and a Cajon available on loan. Maybe you can break the ice by performing here before coming to the next Open Mic Session? A good way to finish off the weekend?

Curries every Wednesday. This is often a complete sellout, with most of our customers returning week after week. Booking advised (01633 483764).
If you are fond of curries and you have not sampled our curries then maybe this week is your chance! Booking is advised but be warned; most customers are returning week after week. We have reason to believe that eating curries at The Bush could be habit forming! Further details below.

The Very Best Italian Style Handmade Stone Baked Pizzas
(Eat In or Take Away)
Tuesdays and Fridays
6 to 9pm.

Our Pizzas are probably the best in the area, made using our own dough and hand produced.
Takeaways please phone 01633 483764




Sunday Quiz at The Bush! Popular quiz led by our very own Inn Quizitor, Nigel. Cash prizes and free raffle for a bottle of wine..
Only 50p per team member to enter please arrive by 9pm

From 8pm (or earlier by request) GIANT JENGA!  Available other times.

We are one of the last proper pubs in the area. We are doing more good food but we do not want food to dominate the pub. Real Ales are our specialty (we are in The Good Beer Guide 2020) and we usually have two available, three at weekends. We also have a good reputation for our Guinness (Quality Approved 2014). We have an increasing collection of single malts for the connoisseur and we offer excellent ciders (including local ciders) and lagers, and fine wines by the bottle (187ml or 70cl).
