  • Turtle Bay Caribbean restaurant and bar coming to Solihull.  
  • Opening Tuesday May 31st  
  • Located on Station Road.

Solihull should prepare for sunny times ahead as Turtle Bay restaurant prepares to roll into town  – it’s going to be all about jerk, rum and reggae this summer!

Turtle Bay Caribbean restaurant and bar is set to open its doors to Solihull this May, bringing a brand new, loud, proud and authentic Caribbean dining and drinking experience to the town for the very first time.

The restaurant will be as bold, fun, and bursting with life as its sister site in Birmingham - and every bit as tasty of course.

The restaurant will open its doors on 31st May.   

The 210 seater, £800K,410 SQM Solihull restaurant will be located on Station Road right in the heart of the town centre.  

The new venture will create 50 jobs.

Turtle Bay celebrates the lively, colourful, soulful and, above all, delicious experiences that the Caribbean has to offer  - from rich and explosive flavours to laid back ‘liming’. Their mission is to capture the spirit of celebration that the Caribbean is famed for around the globe - making customers happy by delivering a hedonistic combination of joyous food, wicked drinks and a fun, laidback atmosphere. It’s democratic, welcoming and sociable destination – CEOs are as welcome as students.

Turtle Bay is designed to create the perfect atmosphere for enjoying bold, spicy food and drink, and its ‘look’ is as vibrant and lively as you might expect, with each restaurant designed bespoke for its location.

The Solihull restaurant will be no exception and local pleasure seekers can expect an interior designed to capture the joy and beauty of the Caribbean, as well as the urban, smart nature of Solihull itself.

The Solihull venue will evoke the best of the beach, bringing a huge ray of sunshine to the town. There’ll be reclaimed wooden furniture, vibrant mosaics, colourful and eclectic murals, quirky feature lighting, an open kitchen ‘jerk shack’, plentiful outdoor seating and a whole wall created from speakers!

This is a restaurant that sets out to immerse customers in the blissful atmosphere of the Caribbean.

The central island bar, and indoor ‘veranda’ style drinking spaces created mean that those who just want to just enjoy the, now legendary, Turtle Bay happy hour can do so without dining too.

Turtle Bay’s happy hour lasts from 11.30am – 7pm and then starts up again at 10pm! This makes it the happiest happy hour in the city with ALL of their cocktails available at 241 during that time – it’s a must for cocktail lovers and rum enthusiasts all week long.

Ajith Jayawickrema, Founder of Turtle Bay Restaurants commented:

“We have been keen to open in Solihull for some time, so we’re delighted to have secured such a great spot in the town centre. It’s already a fantastic place to live and work, and we think our sunny Caribbean soul food will provide something completely unique in an already vibrant community.


  • 50 jobs created
  • 210 cover restaurant
  • £800K investment
  • Stand alone bar offering.
  • 50+ authentic Caribbean dishes.
