Turtle Bay Food.

Get ready for a taste of the Caribbean in Middlesbrough thanks to Turtle Bay!

Turtle Bay Caribbean restaurant and bar coming to Middlesbrough.

Opening 23rd April 2017

Located on Corporation Road

50 Jobs created.

Spring has certainly sprung in Middlesbrough as Turtle Bay Caribbean restaurant and bar prepares to roll into the town.

Turtle Bay is coming to the town’s Corporation Road and is set to open its doors on April 23rd bringing a new, vibrant and delicious Caribbean dining and drinking experience to the town.

There has been a £800k investment in the 4,144sq ft site that has transformed the interior and exterior to a capacity of 231 seats.  Fifty new local jobs have also been created with roles are across the whole of the restaurant that include management, chefs and serving staff.

Turtle Bay is all about celebrating the lively, colourful, soulful and, above all, delicious experiences that the Caribbean has to offer - from rich and explosive flavours to laid back ‘liming’. Their mission is to capture the spirit of celebration that the Caribbean is famed for around the globe - making customers happy by delivering a hedonistic combination of joyous food, wicked drinks and a fun, relaxed atmosphere. 

The Middlesbrough restaurant will be no exception with its vibrant, welcoming and sociable atmosphere and bespoke design. In fact the team have pulled out all the stops for their first restaurant in the area, which will be a beach-shack-inspired ray of sunshine. The bold, bright, joyful interior will be designed to transport Middlesbrough guests to sunnier climes.

As well as the stunning ‘island hut’ bar, there’ll be outside dining and a vibrant, open ‘street kitchen’.

Caribbean colour schemes and bespoke wall murals will be in abundance, as well as the restaurant’s trademark use of reclaimed materials. Customers can expect to see oil drum lampshades, reclaimed wood and chequer-plate and disused speakers… all making up one totally unique, vibrant restaurant.

Food is at the heart of the Turtle Bay experience – just as it’s central to the heart and soul of Caribbean culture. An eclectic cuisine that is influenced by a rich tapestry of ethnicities, the food at Turtle Bay offers a vast choice of bold flavours and rustic dishes, all inspired by the laid back, social outlook of the Caribbean. The menu is meticulously researched and lovingly created.

Dishes are brimming with zesty flavours and spicy hues – there’s plenty to share or dig into alone.

The offering includes ‘Cutters’ (inspired by Beach Shacks and Street Hawkers of the Caribbean Islands  - perfect for sharing over cocktails); the Jerk BBQ Pit (which is exactly as fiery as it sounds); ‘One Pots’ (rich, slowly simmered and uniquely Caribbean) and Lunch and Light (a briefer encounter with the Caribbean). Signature dishes include their famous Jerk Chicken and Curry Goat.

This is fuss-free soul food for individuals that love, and live, to eat!

The bar offering is something to behold, with a menu of more than 40 Caribbean rums to choose from, all used to create a cocktail list that’s as cool and credible as you’d expect from a culture that brought us Bob Marley.

Turtle Bay’s happy hour lasts from 11.30am – 7pm and then starts up again at 10pm! This makes it the happiest happy hour in town with ALL of their cocktails available at 2-4-1 during that time – it’s a must for cocktail lovers and rum enthusiasts all week long.

The restaurant will be opening on 23rd April.  Imagery is attached and further images will be available upon launch and more details will be announced during the lead up to the opening.
