The eating and drinking scene in Edinburgh is in rude health, and new research has ranked the Scottish capital amongst the UK’s top cities for foodies.

It comes as Accor reveals the top 15 UK foodie destinations outside of London, and the best cities to visit for each cuisine. The research analysed each location against its number of Michelin stars, Instagram and TikTok statistics, Google reviews, OpenTable, news outlets analysis and social sentiment to generate a score out of 100.

Edinburgh received an overall score of 86, placing it in second, just behind Sheffield. The city also has the highest number of restaurants in the Michelin Guide listings, and was found to be the top UK destination for lovers of Spanish cuisine.
