Durham's first Caribbean restaurant set to open

A Caribbean restaurant and bar is set to open its doors to the residents of Durham on Friday October 15.

The Turtle Bay Durham restaurant is located in a 4850 sq ft two-storey venue at The Riverwalk with views across to UNESCO World Heritage Site Durham Cathedral and Castle.

Ryan Sullivan, general manager of Turtle Bay Durham, said: “We can’t wait to heat up the social scene in Durham this Autumn. From rum and reggae to jerk chicken, bottomless brunch and classic curries, Turtle Bay is bringing the spirit of the Caribbean and its legendary good times.

“We’ve been planning this opening for a long time, the team is ready and chomping at the bit and we can’t wait to welcome Durham’s first diners through the doors.”

Fusion Design and Architecture has created bespoke interiors including a central island bar, open kitchen, flaming jerk-pit and grill, indoor veranda seating plus a Reggae and D’Rum themed rooms.

The group operates more than 40 restaurants nationwide including popular venues in Newcastle and Middlesbrough.
