As it prepares to open on 31 March, Hammersmith’s new Caribbean restaurant Turtle Bay has been granted permission by the council for an outdoor terrace with seating for up to 48 people under colourful retractable “jumbrellas”.

The terrace, which will have its own integrated heating and lighting system, will be in front of the premises in 245 Hammersmith Road, the office block nicknamed ‘the big red workplace’, a few yards east of Hammersmith Broadway.

As we reported in December, the new restaurant, part of a chain promising to deliver the flavours and spirit of the Caribbean with “a tropical mix of rum, reggae and jerk”, has taken over empty ground floor premises within 245 Hammersmith Road.

Turtle Bay promises an ethos of good times, with a Caribbean-inspired menu with signature jerk pit dishes and soul-food and a huge range of rum-based cocktails which can be sampled during Bottomless Brunches and Happy Hours.

The menu has been created by executive chef Collin Brown, who is the Caribbean’s most awarded chef. It includes classic dishes and spice-infused West Indian plates like brown stew chicken and curry goat, chargrilled jerk chicken (marinaded for at least 24 hours) with rice and peas, salt fish fritters, garlic pit prawns, and decadent mac and cheese.

There are also lots of plant-based options for veggies and vegans.

The restaurant will also offer two drinks for the price of one every day during two Happy Hour sessions, running from 10am - 7pm , and the Late Happy Hour from 9:30pm till closing time.

On its website, the team behind the new launch say: “ We cannot WAIT to bring our mix of Rum, Reggae and Jerk to Hammersmith. We'll be opening one of our biggest restaurants to date and we are so excited!”

Local foodies are invited to visit the web site and sign up for an invitation to Turtle Bay’s soft launch event, where they can look round the new restaurant and sample free food and cocktails.
