Masterchef Professionals winner Jamie Scott’s inaugural venture, The Newport Restaurant, was last night (Monday 25th September) awarded its third AA rosette at the highly anticipated AA Awards in London.

Restaurants with 3 Rosettes are described as having achieved culinary standards that demand national recognition well beyond their local area. The Newport’s third rosette comes as the Fife venue launches their latest menu, offering new 4, 6 and 8 courses.

One of the industry’s most prestigious and highly anticipated events, the AA Hospitality Awards span 15 categories, honouring the best hotels, restaurants, and spas across the UK. The accolade sees The Newport join The Cellar in Anstruther, The Peat Inn in Cupar, St Andrew’s HAAR, and Road Hole to become one of only five restaurants in Fife to hold the prestigious title.

Newport co-owner and Jamie’s wife, Kelly, said: “Our team has worked exceptionally hard for this award, and we really feel it’s well deserved for everyone who is part of the Newport team, and so we’re extremely grateful to the AA.

“We’re performing and cooking the best we ever have, with the most amazing feedback from our customers and to say we’re excited for this award and the new chapter it launches us into, is most definitely an understatement.”

The award comes at a time when Jamie has revitalised and streamlined the Newport menu with prices lowered for the first time since the COVID pandemic, in an effort to enhance their focus on a more diverse, seasonal and sustainable approach.

Jamie Scott said: “We’ve stripped back our menu, to provide one menu that takes us straight back to our roots, with innovative flavours, new dishes and some old favourites I know people will love as much as we do.

“It also means people can be part of what we’re creating here in a way that suits them, whether that be enjoying just 4 dishes of their favourite flavours, such as salt aged picanha beef and apple souffle,  or deciding to go for 6 or 8. The  keenest of foodies can even extend that up to 10 dishes.”

Simon Numphud, Managing Director at AA Media said: “Every year we present awards to the very best AA-rated hotels, restaurants, spas and their teams across the UK. We introduced the renowned star rating scheme for quality in 1908 and are honoured to shine a well-deserved spotlight on individuals and establishments who consistently deliver excellence to their guests.”
