Turtle Bay

There are two Turtle Bays in Manchester city centre and both are letting kids eat for free this half term.

It's Caribbean themed, but the kids' menu - which has just been revamped - accounts for the fussiness of many little ones, so there's no big spices going on.

There are dishes for Tiny Turtles and Bigger Turtles, with the choice of a main course, side and drink, usually costing &5.95, or &7.25 respectively.

Dishes include healthy bites like grilled chicken with lemony rice, fresh avocado turtle wraps, sweetcorn fritters, and flat bread pizzas.

Bigger Turtles can opt for slightly bigger, more grown up options including a quarter jerk chicken and sunshine quinoa, chicken and cheese toastie with Caribbean slaw or crispy squid with fries.


For pudding they can choose from healthy fresh tropical fruit selection or the salted caramel fudge brownie – or there’s the halfway house treat of two good old scoops of vanilla, coconut or vegan chocolate ice cream.

And to keep the kids busy while they wait for their food, they each get a 'Cool Caribbean Fun Book' and at the Oxford Street site there's also a games area with everything from table football and board games to giant Connect 4.


The offer runs from now until November 2. Book online .
