Scottish restaurants have a good showing in the latest edition of The Good Food Guide which is published on Monday 9th September.

Now owned by Waitrose, the long running guide has announced eleven new Scottish entries. The newcomers bring the total number of Scottish restaurants, pubs and cafes included in the guide up to 104.

New entries in Scotland who have landed a spot in Waitrose Good Food Guide 2014 are:

The Limetree Restaurant in Moffat; Anstruther Fish Bar in Fife; Galvin Brasserie de Luxe, Purslane Restaurant, The Gardener’s Cottage and The Pompadour by Galvin all in Edinburgh; Cail Bruich and Central Market in Glasgow; The Cross in Kingussie, Mountain Café in Aviemore and Birch Tree in Delny, all based in the Highlands.

Top 50 listings

But it’s not just new entries making an impact on the Good Food Guide 2014. Five restaurants from Scotland have made it in to the much coveted top 50 restaurants listing. The names which have made it into the Top 50 won’t be a surprise to anyone who is interested in food in Scotland.

They are Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles at number 20, The Peat Inn in Fife at number 28 and The Kitchin, Restaurant Martin Wishart and Castle Terrace all in Edinburgh, at numbers 21, 26 and 46 respectively.

Long serving restaurants

Scotland is also home to some of the longest serving restaurants in the Good Food Guide. The Ubiquitous Chip in Glasgow has appeared in the guide for 42 years with Airds Hotel in Port Appin, Inverlochy Castle in Fort William and Ostlers Close in Cupar all appearing for over 30 years.
