About Bustronome

Don’t you just love it when London restaurants have great views? It makes for awesome pictures, it’s something pretty to look at while you eat and proves a good talking point between guests. If it's a yes from you, you will adore Bustronome, which not only gives epic views of London, it takes you on a sightseeing trip of the entire city during your meal.

High on the immersive dining scale, Bustronome is a double-decker bus kitted out as a fine-dining restaurant. You embark at Victoria Embankment and get whizzed around London to see all the major attractions such as London Eye, Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral. We particularly like the glass roof, which allows you to take in the sights in all their glory.    

Won’t the food go flying every time the bus makes a turn, you ask? Not at all. The bus is fitted with special suspension to make breaking and turning as smooth as possible for guests. Besides, plates rests on non-slip place mats and there’s a (surprisingly pretty) rack on the table for you to slide your glasses into.

The menu is constantly changing, but always seasonal and creative, with a strong local feel. Various chefs are invited to help develop dishes, under the helm of chef and creative director Vincent Thiesse. What we tasted on our visit was delicious – particularly so when taking into consideration it was cooked in a mobile kitchen on board a bus.

You can hop on the bus for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. A four-course lunch is served every day daparting at 12.15pm for £65pp (it's £85pp with wine pairing). Afternoon tea is only served on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 3pm, and has both vegan and halal options. Prices start at £60pp. For dinner, you can expect six courses starting at £105pp, kicking off at 7.15pm. Make sure to be there at least 15 minutes before departure.

Oh, and for those of you wondering – there’s a toilet downstairs.
