Diners at Nottingham’s Cornerhouse can now be whisked away to a Caribbean island without leaving the city.

Turtle Bay is the newest restaurant to be moving into the city’s leading leisure and entertainment complex, offering something a little bit different for customers.

Dishes like Curry Goat, Jerk Chicken and Jamaican Fried Bait, will be on the menu, served up from a street style, open kitchen. From a central beach bar, you will have a choice of over 30 different Caribbean rums perfect for creating refreshing island cocktails.

Turtle Bay, which also has venues in Milton Keynes and Southampton, is due to open in October after a complete renovation inside the vacant unit on the corner of Forman Street and Burton Street.

Founder Ajith Jayawickrema said: “We are trying to recreate a holiday vibe right here in Nottingham with our open street kitchen and island beach bar. We want to offer our customers something unique, after all everyone has tried the likes of Italian, Chinese and American food.

“Nottingham seemed like a fantastic choice for our third restaurant and The Cornerhouse is a perfect location in the city centre, close to the theatre and the two universities.”

Suzanne Green, manager at The Cornerhouse said: “Visitors to The Cornerhouse can almost travel around the world when they visit us with so many different tastes and flavours on offer under one roof.

“It’s an exciting time for us with Turtle Bay opening in October and other new operators due to be announced very soon.”

Land Securities purchased The Cornerhouse in May 2012 to give them a presence in Nottingham and allow them to expand their leisure and retail portfolio.
