Timeless Afternoon Tea Experience in Gorgeous Glasgow

Step aboard our elegantly vintage ’66 Routemaster in Glasgowand let all of the best memories of years gone by flood back. Scottish heritage blends in with the iconic Britishness of our red bus as hints of tartan and stag lamps decorate the interior. Upon arrival, a friendly member of the crew will direct you to your table – and your celebratory glass of fizz.


Take a seat and begin to relax and enjoy your experience aboard the Red Bus Bistro. Your cake stand will be set up ready for you laden with a sumptuous selection of sandwiches, smoked salmon blinis, mini quiches, petits fours, cream cakes and warmed freshly baked scones.


Plus – what is Afternoon Tea without the tea! Ours is unlimited and will be brought to your table in a bright red Red Bus Bistro travel cup that will keep your drink at the perfect temperature whilst you tuck into your treats.


If you prefer something a little bit stronger than tea, we have a fully licensed bar to order from. Just look for the little red bar list on your table.


The highlight of our bar offerings is our gin cocktails, or ‘pot-tails’ as we like to call them. Our gin is sourced locally from Scottish gin distillery, Gin Bothy, and comes in a variety of flavours. The ‘pot-tails’ are served in darling transparent teapots and are topped off with edible flowers.


As the tour trundles around the historic streets of Glasgow, the crew will (time permitting) point out points of interest on our onboard microphone. If you are hungry to learn more about Glasgow, they are always happy to answer any questions that may pop into your head.


Our tours typically operate at 12 noon, 3.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m., with each tour lasting approximately 90 minutes.


A Braw Brew Tour


Trying to find a gift for the man who has got everything? Or just looking for something new to do in Glasgow? Why not choose the Red Bus Bistro for a brewery tour experience like no other.

Jump aboard our beautifully restored vintage Routemaster red bus where a fridge full of cool beers will be waiting to be brought to your table as you take in the sights of Glasgow.

We will have your mouth watering as the smell of our freshly cooked gourmet burgers travels from our onboard galley to your table. You will be served from a choice of delicious Burgers of Aberdeen Angus, Cajun Chicken, Pulled Pork or a vegetarian option, all garnished with crispy lettuce, tomatoes, streaky bacon and served in a brioche burger bun, all dressed with our signature burger sauce. The burger will be served with gherkins and seasoned fries. Your first beer is free. After that, you can take your pick from our selection of drinks from our fully licensed bar.

Aboard the Red Bus Bistro, there is no need to fight for a table with a view as from every table you can look out the window and take in the delights of Glasgow from the majestic Glasgow Cathedral to the stylish West End.

After you have been suitably fed and watered we shall drop you off at Tennant’s famous  Wellpark Brewery which is home to more than 450 years of brewing tradition and award-winning beers – a must-see for any beer buff!
