Narrowly missing out on the top 10, Edinburgh’s own Bread Meats placed 11th on the list, while the Hawksmoor chain, which has a venue in West Register Street in the capital, also made the list for their Manchester venture.

Writing about the Edinburgh restaurant, Big 7 wrote: “Bread Meats Bread certainly don’t hold back on the cheese, and some people have even been known to go for the triple patty burger in their order. There’s some serious eating in this one.”
