“Whether you're feasting with friends or simply want to relax with a cocktail or two, our unique blend of Caribbean spices, warming rums and sunshine on the rocks has got you sorted. From vegan to the ultimate meat jerk pit feast, there is something for everyone at Turtle Bay! We’re all about slowing down hanging out and feeling good and we have three big loves – rum, reggae and jerk. Sure, we do much more these days but our oh-so-good cocktails, fiery jerk and juicy tracks always remind us of the warmth, spirit and flavours of the Caribbean – in fact, they’re the very things that got us opening our first-ever restaurant. ”

“This monument at Runnymede Meadow to the historic moment Magna Carta was sealed here was designed by Sir Edward Maufe and erected in 1957 by the American Bar Association. Nestled in a quiet spot near the meadows and sat on a gentle slope looking out towards the Thames, today the memorial is the perfect place to pause and reflect.”
