The Christmas menu is also available for takeout or delivery this year, served with cocktails and a reggae playlist. Designed to lift spirits and provide an escape from tired turkeys and predictable puds, the Christmas collection is filled with brand new warming, vibrant takes on the traditional festive fare, as well as a host of much-loved Turtle Bay Caribbean classics, and an abundance of the Bay’s vegan and veggie dishes too. First things first, guests will start with a table full of grazing-style appetisers including all time Turtle Bay favourites like juicy grilled halloumi, crispy chickpeas and fresh watermelon. Starters follow with Turtle Bay classics including vegan-friendly Trini Doubles (fragrant and rich curried chickpeas on two freshly made bara roti flatbreads) and Crispy Chilli Squid; as well as the very special festive Berry Jerk Wings (marinated wings, pit grilled and glazed with juicy berry-infused jerk). For the main course say hello to the amazing new Christmas Half Jerk Chicken - a tropical twist on the classic Christmas bird. The Bay’s famous fiery jerk-marinated chicken is pit grilled, topped with a creamy festive jerk sauce and served with fresh watermelon and coconut rice & peas. Other Caribbean Christmas treats include the extra-indulgent 21 day-aged Jerk Sirloin; the festive ‘Berry Breast’ marinated chicken; vegan dishes including ‘Sweet Berry Jerk Tofu’ and the exotic and spicy Chestnut and Roasted Squash Curry. Alternatively, for the main course festive diners can opt for classic Bay favourites such as Curry Goat and Jerk Salmon. Christmas Pud gets a tropical Caribbean twist via the Rum Soaked Festive Pudding (Ve) for dessert. There’s also sunshine-inspired Coconut Tart; Banana Toffee and Rum Cheesecake as well as the ultra-decadent Chilli Chocolate Brownie, served with creamy vegan coconut ice cream. The Christmas menu is £24 for 3 courses and £27 for four courses, and is available all day long from November 9 until January 3 . For bookings visit www.turtlebay.co.uk/
