Milton Keynes first Caribbean restaurant to open at The Hub

Wed 29 Sep 2010

Turtle Bay will open its doors at the beginning of November offering a completely authentic culinary experience with food, drink, decor, entertainment and service all coming together to create a casual and contemporary ambiance.

Director of Operations, Stephen Entwistle, said; “We are thrilled to be opening our first restaurant at The Hub in Milton Keynes. 

“The Caribbean is such a great source of inspiration with regards to culture, food and atmosphere. At Turtle Bay we’re committed to sourcing the finest ingredients to celebrate a cuisine that represents a glorious and delicious mixture of many cultures. It is our aim to create a memorable dining experience for customers of all ages to savour and enjoy.”

The menu will be bursting with traditional ingredients native to the Caribbean with lunch and evening dishes ranging from Beach Food, inspired by beach shacks and street hawkers across the islands, to meat from the wood fired BBQ and One Pot dishes such as Bob Marley’s reported favourite Rastafari Itah Run Down and Blue Mountain Goat Curry. Other irresistible specialities include Jerk Chicken, Trinidadian Rotis and Banana Leaf Snapper.

Not to be overshadowed by the food, and in true Caribbean style, the Turtle Bay drinks menu is also extensive with over 20 cocktails, such as Reggae Rum Punch and Mo’Bay Ting Swizzle, all shaken and stirred with the finest native ingredients, including home-made ginger beer and sorrel juice. Also Red Stripe lager on draught, and for wine lover a great selection of both old and New World wines.

Seating 135 diners inside and 85 alfresco, the restaurant’s eclectic interior design will feature an open ‘street’ kitchen, distinctive bar servery, and a verandah area with hammock and bench beach furniture - all created with textures and layers for a relaxed balanced of slick yet rustic decor.

Open seven days a week, 12 noon – 11.00 p.m. and 11.30 p.m. at weekends, the opening of Turtle Bay will create around 30 full and part-time jobs.
