Eat dinner on a Routemaster bus

The Rootmaster 'Bustaurant', in Elys Yard off Brick Lane, is a vegetarian restaurant in an authentic 1967 Routemaster Bus.

There is a kitchen on the lower deck, with a takeaway hatch for those on the run and upstairs it is a fully fledged restaurant with seats for 28 people. There are also seats outside.

The bus was withdrawn from service after 37 years in 2004 when and went through two more owners before being acquired by the current restauranteurs and launched in May 2007.

The kitchen serves up healthy vegetarian fare which is priced around £5-£8 at lunch and £9-£12 for dinner. The bus is open Monday to Saturday from 11am to 11pm and Sunday from 11am to 10.30pm, though the kitchen only opens at noon and closes about an hour before the time listed. The nearest tubes are Liverpool Street or Aldgate East. for more information visit the website at http://www.root-master.co.uk/.

  4. was looking forward to the meal-experience, went sunday night,not good, walked out.ate somewhere else..service was bad:bus was dirty. they did not seem to be bothered if we were there or not, then did not want to serve food, although we asked before and got a yes, but after waiting for a while was told that they stopped serving food. This was at 5.30pm. better luck for anybody else,
