Rules of the space

As it is a vintage bus, we have no seat belts, therefore, we would not recommend it for children under 6 years old.


Red Bus Bistro, in a nutshell, is a quirky vintage London bus/restaurant touring the wonderful cities of Glasgow, on a daily basis.

Our destination on this iconic vehicle/restaurant is a gastronomic journey to take in some of the best sites Glasgow has to offer and an opportunity to sample delicious home-cooked Scottish cuisine, all produced from locally sourced Scottish suppliers, and freshly cooked onboard.
