Join Jamie Scott, Head Chef and Patron of the 2AA rosette restaurant, and AA Restaurant of the Year 2018-19, The Newport, for our latest Penthouse Social on the 22nd of May at The Edinburgh Grand, St Andrew Square.

Jamie will host a fun food and wine masterclass, making the most of the stylish surroundings and magnificent views of our seventh-floor penthouse apartment.

From 5.30pm, guests will be treated to canapés designed and created ‘live’ by the award-winning chef, accompanied by wine, selected by The Register Club’s sommelier.

Throughout the event, Jamie will be on hand to chat with guests, share anecdotes and demonstrate his cooking expertise.

In addition, from 7.30pm, and for those who want to join The Edinburgh Grand Supper Club, Jamie will welcome diners to the beautiful surroundings of The Register Club, to enjoy his own specially created tasting menu, served with paired wines. Booked separately here.



Head Chef, Patron and driving force of The Newport, Jamie was crowned the 2014 winner of the BBC’s MasterChef Professionals. He followed this with a series of pop-ups and events, before the opening of The Newport in 2016 with wife Kelly. The restaurant quickly earned 2AA rosettes and entry to The Michelin Guide.

Jamie’s style is unique and with his team, this is constantly evolving. He is an advocate for zero waste and works closely with all producers to understand supply and demand. Using classic recipes and pairing with modern techniques Jamie showcases the bountiful larder from the surrounding areas in a modern Scottish offering.

At The Newport, situated on the Southern bank of the River Tay, Jamie and his team aim to create a destination, unique visit and dining experience. The two-storey building's stunning design has panoramic windows offering views of some of the best sunsets in Scotland.

The Newport was recently awarded the coveted AA Restaurant of the Year Award 2018-19. A massive achievement and much deserved.
