A group of Caribbean-inspired restaurants in Manchester has just launched a bottomless Christmas party deal with unlimited drinks and plates of fiery jerk chicken, and it sounds like it will be quite the raucous affair.
Turtle Bay, the restaurant group famed for serving a bottomless brunch with every cocktail on its menu included, has decided to play right to its strengths this season – creating an updated version of the offer for partygoers over the festive period.
With two hours of unlimited drinks, a burger, roti or brunch dish all included in the £32.50 price, from now until the New Year, it will run its bottomless deal right through till 5pm – meaning that any festive get together booked before this time can really make the most of their budget.
There’s also an option to upgrade if you fancy a main with your botomless Christmas deal, choosing from the likes of fiery jerk chicken, Caribbean katsu or chef Colin’s mac and cheese for an extra £4.50.
As for cocktails, indulge in the likes of the Dessert Island (dark rum, Tia Maria, cold brew and salted caramel); Tobago Tea (white rum, vodka, tequila, gin, triple sec, grapefruit, mango and lime); Jamrock Punch (gin, passionfruit, strawberry, apple, grapefruit and lime) and the Tingwray (Wray & Nephew, white rum, grapefruit and lime) over the course of your bookinh.
As well as extending its bottomless deal to make it available to afternoon and early evening Christmas parties, the restaurant group is also planning a NYE bottomless dinner , where fans can ring in the new year in style after a quiet couple of years.
Here, guests can celebrate the arrival of 2023 with two courses and two hours of unlimited cocktails for £44, or three courses for £49.
It is worth noting, however, that those who want to keep their table until close will need to book their table after 9pm.
As for those who fancy a Christmas party with a twist, but don’t want to go all-in with bottomless drinks, Turtle Bay has another food-only package, with two courses for £18.50 or three courses for £23.50.
As art of this festive offering, the whole menu is up for grabs – with an option to mix and match starters and small plates if two or three course dining isn’t your thing.
Turtle Bay has three sites in Greater Manchester, two of which are located in the city centre and a third, newly-opened waterside restaurant with a huge outdoor terrace at Salford Quays.

However, when it comes to local favourites, biryani, ice cream, and cookies all top the list of the most searched-for dishes in Manchester, with searches for biryani rising by 39% in the last two months.
