Three Edinburgh venues could win a prestigious Food and Travel Magazine Reader Award.

Wedgwood the Restaurant, The Voyage of Buck and Millers64 have all been short listed and now face a public vote before the final in September.

Wedgwood the Restaurant hopes to defend its crown in the Best Restaurant Outside London category which it successfully won last year.

Paul and Lisa Wedgwood opened the restaurant in 2007 to offer their version of the perfect night out, exemplary service in a relaxed setting.

Wedgwood has been joined by one other Scottish restaurant this year, the Champany Inn in Linlithgow.

Cocktail bar The Voyage of Buck has been recognised in the Bar of the Year category less than a year after it opened.

It is only one of two outside of London to be recognised and it takes its name from fictional character William “Buck” Clarence who inspired the drinks list with his global adventures.

This summer The Voyage of Buck has a special Milan cocktail menu paying homage the gallerias and aperitivo of 1930’s Milan.

Millers64 is a bed and breakfast venue in an up-graded Victorian terrace on Pilrig Street and is the only Scottish venue to be recognised in its category.

The B&B is run by sisters Louise and Shona Clelland who, inspired by their own global travels, wanted to offer the best hospitality experiences for visitors.

Guests of Millers64 are welcomed to one of its two luxuriously finished rooms with freshly-baked shortbread and homemade tablet.

Winners will be presented their awards at a ceremony in London on 18 September and you can vote for these local businesses as well as Edinburgh for Best City at http://foodandtravel.com/awards until the first week in September.
