Bull & Bush Pub

International in Gaborone

This long-standing South African–run Gabs institution is deservedly popular with expats, tourists and locals alike. Though there’s something on the menu for everyone, it's renowned for its thick steaks, pizzas and cold beers. It has some themed nights – Monday is ribs night, Thursday is pizzas – while on any given night, the outdoor beer garden is buzzing with activity.

There's a fun pub quiz on the last Wednesday evening of the month and menu highlights include T-bone (750g!), BBQ steak roll, rack of ribs and great burgers. To really confirm this as a place apart, there was even an Action cricket pitch under construction out the back.
