Caribbean restaurant chain set to bring taste of tropics to Durham

A national Caribbean restaurant chain has announced plans to launch a new eatery in Durham.

Turtle Bay has started work on a new 4,850 sq ft restaurant at Durham’s Riverwalk leisure venue.

The two-storey restaurant and bar is scheduled to open in October and will create 50 new hospitality jobs in the city.

Phil Dukelow, operations manager North East for Turtle Bay, commented: “Durham’s dining and social scene is about to heat up. Turtle Bay is bringing the tastes, spirit and energy of the Caribbean to this beautiful historic city.

Diners will experience laid-back holiday vibes with signature cocktails, bottomless brunches and island-inspired dishes like jerk chicken and fiery goat curry.“

Alan Day, centre manager at The Riverwalk, added: “We are delighted to welcome another great brand to join The Riverwalk and complement our already extensive food and beverage offering.

The new Turtle Bay restaurant will create more jobs for local residents and strengthen The Riverwalk as Durham’s premier leisure destination.“
