Jamie'sStoryJamie, 30, was born in Kirkliston around the time mum Winnie was working at the Caledonian. His dad, Grant, was in the Black Watch and the family moved around when Jamie was young. He started his career at 14 as the most junior person in the kitchen of his parents’ pub, and eventually worked his way up to running it.
“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 Restaurant will bring”.
