Celebrate Father’s Day with Red Bus Bistro

Have you got an amazing Father? Show him that he means way more to you than another cheap #1 Dad mug with our Red Bus Bistro Fathers Day package.

Take him aboard one of our lovingly restored 1966 Routemaster buses for a special day out he will never forget.
As he steps on board all the best memories of yesteryear will come flooding back – the only big difference is that we’ve replaced the Clippy with a gourmet chef!

Don’t worry about racing for a good seat. Every seat on the Red Bus Bistro has a wonderful view as the bus trundles through the majestic streets of Glasgow or Edinburgh.

Soon after arrival, he will be tucking into a mouth-watering gourmet burger of his choice of Aberdeen Angus, Cajun Chicken, Pulled Pork or a Vegetarian choice.
To wash it down we have a selection of cold beers or better yet, the unforgettable Gunshot Gin by Gin Bothy.

Gin Bothy – Gunshot Gin

Gunshot Gin by our Scottish Gin supplier, Gin Bothy, is one of the most uniquely delicious gins on the market. If you are unsure of gin is your thing, tasting this infused tipple will make you think again.

The gin, which is made in small batches in a Bothy located just outside Kirriemuir, is infused with cinnamon, cloves and mixed spices.

It is fantastic neat on the rocks, with ginger ale to bring out the citrus notes or as part of the Smoking Gun cocktail which we will be serving aboard the bus.

The Smoking Gun Cocktail
50ml – Gin Bothy Gunshot
Splash Demerara Syrup

On father’s day itself, we have tours running throughout the day in both Glasgow and Edinburgh. If you can’t make aboard on the 17th of June, why not purchase him a gift voucher so that he can enjoy the experience at his leisure.
