"To capture the vibe and feel of classic blues, rock and roll, country, and r+b in a modern and contemporary way is no mean feat. Step forward GLAS, a three piece band from S Wales. Featuring a combined collective of talent that has seen them share stages with the likes of The Groundhogs, leo bud welch. Crazy Cavan and The Rhythm Rockers, The Spellkasters, John Otway and Gerry Mcavoy's Band Of Friends ,.Larry miler, GLAS are about to explode onto the blues and rock'n'roll scene with their upcoming new album. Fronted by Dai John on vocals and bass, with the in-the-pocket drums of Huw Hannan, and lead guitar of James Oliver, the band are one of the hardest working on the scene, with regular festival appearances ( including Tenby Blues and Brecon Jazz), and shows at legendary venues such as London's 100 Club."

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.

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.


Dave Lewis, facebook, 22 January

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).
