Jamie Scott, Chef Patron at The Newport Restaurant commented:
“This is a massive achievement for myself, my wife and our team. It is everything we could have hoped for and really confirmed for us that everyone’s hard work and determination in such a young business is paying off. A huge thank you to not only our amazing team, but also our customers for getting us to this stage with their continued support.”

An AA Inspector said of The Newport Restaurant:
“There's not much better publicity than winning MasterChef: The Professionals, so 2014 winner Jamie Scott got off to a flyer when he opened his own restaurant. Cheerful and enthusiastic service and a breezy contemporary decor make for a relaxed dining experience, while pin-sharp contemporary cooking from Scott and his team make it a hot ticket. Choose between the small plates or go for a pre-ordained tasting menu and expect the likes of a glorious veggie number with violet artichoke, goats' curd and pickled carrots.”
