MasterChef Winner Jamie Scott Brings Brasserie Style Dining to Broughty Ferry

Kelly & Jamie Scott launch Sandbanks Brasserie

MASTERCHEF winner, Jamie Scott is bringing his signature style to Broughty Ferry, Dundee as he and wife Kelly open the doors to Sandbanks Brasserie this Friday, 12th May 2023.

The couple who run The Newport Restaurant, several bakeries across Tayside and Fife, and Shipwrecked Seafood are introducing a more casual style of dining than the fine dining experience of The Newport, which was awarded the AA Restaurant of the Year Award 2018-19.

Jamie and Kelly took over the seaside premises just a few weeks ago from owner Adam Newth who successfully ran The Tayberry from the Brook Street location and has decided to step away to pursue other ventures.  

Jamie said: “We are extremely excited to offer a more casual dining style, while still delivering the delicious flavours, exceptionally fresh and local produce, and attention to detail that we’ve hung our hat on across everything we do – from the tasting menus at the Newport to all four of our bakeries.”

“Customers can expect a more relaxed feel from The Sandbanks Brasserie as they enjoy dishes full of flavour made with the best ingredients including slow cooked pork belly and pancetta sausage, Fife Buffalo Farm buratta and Loch Etvie sea trout. We’ll also be open in the morning when coffee and pastries can be eaten in or taken away.”

Bookings can be made via the website but a number of tables will be held back for walk-in customers, as the eatery aims to make the experience more accessible to a broader audience. Initially opening five days a week Wednesday – Sunday, the team plans to open seven days a week within the coming months. 

With a presence in Newport, Dundee, St Andrews and Arbroath, the entrepreneurial duo have been eager to open a venue in Broughty Ferry that provides an opportunity to bring something new to the area, while driving strong crossover between their existing offering and supporting their zero waste ethos.  Every item on the Sandbanks menu is made from scratch, with the Newport bakeries supplying all baked produce including the Sandbanks Burger brioche buns and iconic sweet staples, such as the triple chocolate caramelia brownie which will be given a Sandbanks twist. 

Kelly said: “While The Newport and The Sandbanks Brassie mirror each other in many ways – both have incredible views across the Tay, several floors of dining, champion local produce and strive to source and support seasonal & sustainable food, we wanted to change up the expectation and deliver something that can’t be experienced at any of our other venues. Whether it’s coffee and cake, a ladies lunch, a date night or wine and nibbles we’re really excited to see how people use and enjoy The Sandbanks.”

“We’re really looking forward to welcoming our regular customers and have been blown away by their response, and with walk-in tables available for every lunch and evening service we’re also excited to see the concept in action within the community and those visiting this beautiful part of the world.”

Kelly added: “We’ve only been able to realise this dream because we have such an excellent team behind us. We have a truly impressive core team that allows us to focus on how we can support everyone in the business, expanding on their knowledge and skills. We’re passionate about encouraging growth and development in the team and we’re excited to showcase that expertise and skill at The Sandbanks.”
