Like many chefs, Jamie Rogers is a tornado of creativity. Epicurean as well as business ideas equally spill forth from this focused young man at a breakneck speed. Contrast this energy with the calming space that is his loft-like restaurant, Twenty-Seven, designed perfectly with simple lines and soothing artwork so you can lose yourself in the food this talented chef creates. Set in the ‘food quarter’ of Kingsbridge, the charming little harbourside town in the South Hams of Devon, it’s no surprise to discover Jamie and his team have been serving a sold-out restaurant every night they’ve been open since lockdown was lifted.
As a child, Jamie would walk past the building his restaurant now occupies and dream, ‘One day, I’m going to own that.’ And in 2018, the dream became reality when Jamie was 27 years old (hence the name). This is when the hard work really started and - in a relatively short space of time - he’s created a sought-after dining experience, tackled the challenges of a global pandemic with gusto, continues to pick up highly prized awards, along with a battalion of loyal foodie followers from the local region and far beyond. Word is spreading widely about the talents of Jamie Rogers. It’s time to come and find out for yourself what the well-deserved fuss is all about.
