I see a few around used outside pubs/cafes. Of course, most aren't actually London buses and amusingly I've actually seen a couple painted red that definitely weren't red when in service in the UK!

If the one in Largo is the British Food Stop (based at the British Food Shop), it's just a red food truck, painted with British looking symbols.

I don't eat fish, so can't comment on the quality, but others have said it's the best fish and chips in Florida. I concur that the chips are like those from a UK chip shop. Other menu items include battered sausage (UK style), steak and ale pie, mushy peas, and even a Scotch egg.

I would agree with Bob the shipping can be an issue with delays especially over the weekend in the heat and items melting.
I have imported quite a few shipments and had one held in customs for a week luckily in winter.
Another shipment was rejected by customs due to incorrect paperwork from a well known supplier in the UK and sent back.
I lost about 200 pounds worth of goods but they refused to refund me.

Anyone looking for British style pies, bacon, sausage, black pudding, mealie pudding, and other British groceries could give Ackroyd's a try. We have tried the sausage and the mealie pudding which were great, and still to try the others. The shipping is expensive, but the food comes in a box with freezer packs by UPS on 2 or 3 day shipping and is still good when delivered.
