London restaurant group Mac & Wild is giving guests the chance to dine inside a Land Rover Gun Bus.
Found at Mac & Wild’s City of London location in Devonshire Square (the original restaurant is over in Fiztrovia), The Land Rover Gun Bus is a private dining experience that differs from the norm.
The Gun Bus can seat up to eight diners comfortably, but you can squeeze in 10 people at a push. The Land Rover Gun Bus was previously used for ferrying hunters and beaters around sporting estates, but you'll find her parked up outside Mac & Wild until January.
While you’re in the Gun Bus, you’ll be able to feast on Mac & Wild’s menu of Scottish-inspired fare, with plenty of comfort food dishes on offer to keep you warm this autumn and winter. Groups at Mac & Wild dine from the Feasting Menu, which kicks off with a 'wee tasting board' that features the much-loved haggis pops (deep-fried nuggets of haggis), as well as a venison Scotch egg.
The main course is all about Mac & Wild’s succulent steaks, with guests able to feast on a on the bone Tomahawk steak – 300g of Macduff tomahawk steak served with a portion of truffle mac 'n' cheese, leafy salad and chips. Desserts are just as decadent – pick from a sticky toffee pudding with a whisky caramel sauce or The Highland Mess: fresh strawberries, whipped vanilla cream, smashed meringue, strawberry sauce and toasted almonds.
Wondering what a Gun Bus has to do with a Scottish restaurant in the Square Mile? Wonder no more, as Mac & Wild’s trump card is its virtual shooting range and whisky bar. Found on the lower ground floor, the shooting range boasts two lanes, each decked out with virtual shooting systems and replica shotguns, so you and your pals can make out like you’re at a shoot in the Scottish Highlands. The wardrobe of shooting attire and tweed should also help you get into the spirit of things.
