Turtle Bay Caribbean restaurant and bar opened its doors in Bath in May 2014, bringing a new, loud, proud and authentic Caribbean dining and drinking experience to the city for the very first time.
The concept celebrates the lively, colourful, soulful and, above all, delicious experiences that the Caribbean has to offer, from explosive flavours to laid back ‘liming’. Their mission? 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, delightful drinks and a fun, laidback atmosphere.
Located on Bridge Street near Pulteney Bridge and Victoria Art Gallery , the venue features a large restaurant space, central island bar, and indoor ‘veranda’ style drinking spaces – the venue is designed to encourage long, lazy lunches, as well as loud, proud parties with plenty of space for everything in between!
Food is at the heart of the Turtle Bay experience – just like its 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 authentic dishes, all inspired by the laid back, social outlook of the Caribbean. The menu is meticulously researched and has been lovingly created. Dishes are brimming with zesty flavours and spicy hues – there’s plenty to share or dig into alone.
The cocktail menu is inspired by a culture that brought us Bob Marley, and so is as cool and credible as you’d expect. Naturally, rum is at the heart of the list. Turtle Bay use Blackwell Rum created by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell who, amongst other things, launched Bob Marley’s career. It’s a characteristically Jamaican rum with a dark hue and spicy kick. This is only one brand though, of a list taking in more than 40 Caribbean rums at the beach shack bar. The menu takes in the whole of the Caribbean from Mount Gay’s Bajan to Appleton Estate’s Jamaican rum, and everything in between. The resulting cocktail menu is a refreshing mix of contemporary and classic Caribbean cocktails.
