January 2015 - WVGuide Reviews Turtle Bay

28th January 2015

We popped into Turtle Bay on Wednesday night, Walthamstow’s newly opened Caribbean restaurant, and were instantly transported to a happier sunnier place.

The staff are friendly and chatty, the music is brilliant, and the food was delicious. Warning, the portions are huge!

We started with Jerk pit ribs, and pulled jerk pork, which was mixed with a fruity salad.

Followed by Jamaican Browned Chicken (which took me back to my holiday in Barbados a few years ago!). And Jerk lamb, nice n spicey.

January 2015 - WVGuide welcomes Turtle Bay to E17

15th January 2015


Hundreds of food and rum lovers turned out to the VIP launch of Turtle Bay; a new Caribbean restaurant and bar, which opened its doors on the High Street, in Walthamstow, yesterday.  The launch night proved this new residency is a welcome addition to the town’s thriving food scene.

Guests were served delicious Caribbean dishes such as the Jerk Chicken and Blue Mountain Curry Goat, as well as authentic Caribbean cocktails including the Reggae Rum Punch and Tobago Tea; which proved the perfect remedy for the January blues and ensured the crowds had an unforgettable evening.  The legendary Troy Ellis and the Hail Jamaica Reggae Band provided the sounds, as guests let their hair down for a mid-week party.

Eddie Coyne, general manager at Turtle Bay said he was ‘thrilled with the number of people who came down and supported the team - the launch event was a perfect way to celebrate our arrival in Walthamstow and we can’t wait to continue the love with the local residents’

Turtle Bay promises to whisk away guests to an island paradise, where they can relax and enjoy authentic Caribbean food with friends and family in a relaxed environment and with a friendly and good service.  It’s a perfect place for dining; whether out with friends, family, a cosy dinner or a big night out during the weekend.

Each month we will do our best to let you know what is going on in and around Walthamstow Village via our twitter account. There are so many diverse activities and events happening, from comedy nights to life drawing, and of course the live music scene. So take a look and be prepared to be entertained as only the Stow can.

Walthamstow Village is E17's hidden gem and is the historical centre of Walthamstow, the original Town Hall is found on Orford road along with an array of shops, bars, pubs and restaurants.

It is hard to believe at times that you are only a twenty-minute tube or train journey into central London.
Or if you fancy a little greenery Epping Forest is also only a walk or cycle ride away, boating at Hollow Ponds in the Summer is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours if the weather is permitting (followed by a cold pint in one of the local pubs).

There is a lot of history to be found in the area, the Vestry House Museum is a great place to go and find out about the local history of Walthamstow.

As each year goes by this area has become more and more popular with artists and each year Walthamstow holds an "E17 art trail". Where people open up their homes and businesses to show the public their displays of arts and crafts.
