CARIBBEAN restaurant Turtle Bay is offering 28 vegan dishes and more than 30 vegan cocktails this January.

The Bournemouth restaurant is promising island vibes, beach-shack-inspired décor, reggae beats and warming soul food.

Its vegan collection is an ambitious, diverse and extensive menu covering all day dining from brunch through to dinner with super sides and a 30 strong collection of vegan-friendly cocktails too. Both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic vegan cocktails are part of Turtle Bay’s happy hour - available as 2 for 1 from 12-7pm and then again after 10pm (and after 9:30pm Sunday – Thursdays)

Kick off a Veganuary day the Turtle Bay way with a plant-based, Caribbean take on the Full English (The Big Vegan Grill Down), or a bowl of coconut porridge with pomegranate (Blackwell’s Breakfast – named after the favourite breakfast of Island Records’ Chris Blackwell).

For big hearty bowls of meat and dairy free soul food there’s Jerk Tofu, Curry Aubergine and Coconut Rundown. Or for the most indulgent of vegan treats guests can opt for a plant based burger… The Vegan Mother Clucker is Turtle Bay’s decadent twist on a vegan ‘chicken’ burger. A seitan patty is cooked in Jamaican spices and served with smashed avocado, wild rocket, pink onions and jerk mayo. The Kernal Vegan Burger is a double decker tower of sweetcorn patties created using vibrant flavours and spices, roasted red peppers and sweet onion chutney.

Or for lighter plant-based options guests can go for the Island Buddha Bowl, Festival Salad or Chilli Smashed Avocado – all can be topped with your choice of jerk vegetables or organic jerk tofu (whatever January diet you might be on – these dishes will serve you well!).

Then there’s an abundance of magnificent vegan small plates made for endless possibilities - these ‘beach tapas’ dishes can be added to complement any dish on the menu or to make up your own perfect, plant-based grazing experience. From Trini Doubles and Sweetcorn Fritters to Fried Plantain, Coconut Rice and Peas, Curried Chick Peas and Avocado Fries – this is laid back, ‘no rules’ dining at its best, and it’s all vegan.

When it comes to puds expect the dreamiest dessert in town – that just happens to be vegan… choose from Chilli Chocolate Brownie or Rum & Coconut Poached Pineapple.

Guests can keep the party going all Veganuary long too with Turtle Bay’s famous cocktail list now ALL vegan and all 241 during Happy Hour.

Turtle Bay’s vegan menu is available throughout the year for those of the opinion that veganism’s for life not just for Veganuary!

If plant-based isn’t your focus this new year then step into Turtle Bay’s Caribbean oasis and tackle anything from a depleted bank account to dry January.

A hearty lunch can be yours for a tenner with the Turtle Bay lunch offer which includes a burger or roti plus a side and soft drink and runs 12-3pm Monday – Wednesday, whilst the set menu includes two courses for £12 and three for £15 available all day and night from Sunday – Thursday.

If it’s time to detox via dry January or just cutting back, Turtle Bay have now introduced 241 happy hour on their famous mocktails.
