The Thistle is our Bar (www.thethistle.co.uk) and it trades from an inconspicuous building, on the main thoroughfare through the village of Hurlford, by Kilmarnock.
The building was purchased and renovated by us in 2005. Since the launch of The Thistle, we have enjoyed the support of our local community and have achieved both, National and Regional Awards for the Bar, its function, and operation within our village and wider community.
Since the bar began trading, we have operated a wide variety of mobile bar options; in marquees, community centres and garden parties – The Thistle Vintage Bus Bar is a Unique option for Scotland.
As a Freehold Business, we approached Heineken UK, to discuss our plans to create The Thistle Vintage Bus Bar. They were very happy to support us in our plans.
We are delighted that The Thistle Vintage Bus Bar offers, fully chilled products on tap, supplied and installed by Heineken UK– Fosters Lager, John Smiths and Strongbow Cider.
A full range of spirits, premixed drinks and packaged beers come as standard on The Thistle Vintage Bus Bar – Special Menu offers are easy too – if you want a Champagne or Whisky Bus Bar ? We simply stock it to your requirements.
The Thistle Vintage Bus Bar has full refrigeration on- board, in addition,a refrigerated trailer (decal wrapped as a mini vintage bus) ensures that the fridges on our bus are restocked with drinks that are already cooled.
