From Our Editors

Customers looking for a new way of sightseeing can enjoy a ride through Edinburgh or Glasgow in a vintage 1966 Routemaster Bus. Tours start at Edinburgh Bus Station, before winding their way through the best-known landmarks of the Scottish capital, including the historic Royal Mile, Princess Street and George IV Bridge. While enjoying the views and listening to a commentary from the staff, participants can feast on a variety of dishes. Red Bus Bistro strives to use fresh, local ingredients to create traditional Scottish flavours.

You would never think an old red bus could offer such good fun on a wet Sunday afternoon. The girls on the bus worked really hard to make sure everyone was welcomed on board and shown to their tables. How they produced the wonderful spread laid out for us in the small but perfectly formed galley kitchen beats me. Good food , and plenty of it. Great atmosphere. Will do it again.

Enjoyed the ride very much. We know Edinburgh so knew where we were but I think points of interest could have been pointed out by the driver, not a running commentary as that would be annoying. Other than that it was great.

It was something different to do and I enjoyed it. The bus looks great and the slate cake stands and plates were lovely. The scones were delicious and the best thing on offer. However, there was no option to substitute a flavour of sandwich you didn't like and the cakes were ok. Tea was served in a plastic "to go" cup, but I can understand tfor health and safety reasons being on a bus. The short tour of Edinburgh was good, although we had to strain to hear the commentary.

The bus and food was ok, a bit cramped at the front of the bus, a bit expensive for what you received
