BBC 2014 MasterChef: The Professionals Winner, Jamie, said: “It was always my intention to open my first restaurant in the Fife and Dundee area.

This is where I grew up and drew all my inspiration from. "The Newport gives me everything I wanted in my first venture. Newport on Tay is a beautiful coastal town with the most incredible views across the river.

"The Newport is a popular venue and with the addition of the restaurant I am looking forward to being part of this wonderful community. My food will reflect the natural surroundings and I am very excited about the future The Newport will bring.”
