About RedBus Bistro

Red Bus Bistro Afternoon Tea, Gin Tea and Gourmet Burger Experiences.


Get on board and enjoy either an Afternoon tea, Gin Tea or Gourmet Burger Experience on our vintage 1966 Routemaster Bus, while you take in the stunning sights that both Edinburgh and Glasgow have to offer.


Whilst touring you will enjoy a sophisticated Afternoon Tea or Gin Tea Experience, or treat yourself to a Gourmet Burger Experience. Our Afternoon Tea and Gin Tea consist of a selection of freshly made sandwiches made up of some of Scotland’s best local ingredients combining traditional flavours with the finest produce. You will also be served a selection of both sweet and savoury treats, and warm home baked scones with Traditional preserves and whipped cream. The selection will be accompanied by an array of specially selected breakfast and herbal teas, and your choice of freshly brewed barista coffees. Our Gourmet Burgers are all homemade using the finest quality Scottish Meats.


Should you have special dietary needs such as Vegetarian or Gluten free just let us know at the time of booking. We are unable to accept special dietary requirements within 3 days of tour.


The Red Bus Experiences in Edinburgh will depart and arrive back at Stance ZF, Waterloo Place, the Red Bus Experiences in Glasgow will depart and arrive back at 266 George Street.


This Unique experience is perfect for special occasions, or just to enjoy the sites. There is also the option to hire the bus for exclusivity. For more information for Private Hire please email our office [email protected] or call the team on 01355 229448. Whatever your special occasion we will cater for it.


Children under the age of six are not permitted to ride on the bus due to Health and Safety Regulations. Due to the design of the Routemaster Bus we are unable to accommodate wheelchair users, although we can certainly reserve seating downstairs for those who are unable to manage the stairs.


We now have a licence to sell Alcohol onboard, so if you fancy a little tipple or even a Gin Cocktail please see the staff onboard. We no longer offer the option for a Corkage fee.


Please note that there is a surcharge of £3 for Vegan & Gluten Free menus.
