Not as good as I had expected

I had heard a lot about the Urban Beach restaurant and was looking forward to trying it. Whilst the food was good, and menu interesting I didn't feel the food was anything special. I was disappointed that it was not possible to buy a basked of freshly made bread, although we were brought a couple... read more

Got to the Urban Beach for our evening meal. Service brilliant as always, the staff are really lovely and so attentive. Food was amazing. Such a wonderful... More

On a very cold, wet and miserable February day, we decided to visit Urban Beach (a) because the staff are always very welcoming and (b) because there is a lovely fire. We were not disappointed on either count today. We started off with a Latte each - and enjoyed those, so decided to ask about breakfast - by this time... More

Decided on the home made pasta with mussels, squid and leek off the specials board - and it was so good! and so reasonably priced! Wonderful wine selection and knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Have been here before and have been impressed before. Second time around and a little dissapointed. The staff are excellent always! (And always the same faces) We ordered leg of lamb this time and was greeted with 4x 10mm thick very pink lamb pieces. We wasn't even asked how we wanted it cooked. No other sauces/condiments were offered, although I... More

We had a fairly late lunch here, and were surprised that they hadn't "run out". We both had Roast Beef and it was first class. The vegetables (lots) were all Al Dente and we love that, I don't want to eat vegetables that are mushy, it reminds me of school food! The staff here are excellent and they have a... More

We thought we would check this place out as we always go to Urban Reef. Really lovely inside and outside (for summer). Staff really lovely and we are going to go back for something to eat next time.

We stopped off for lunch and received a very warm welcome as we entered. The lunch menu had lots of choice from sandwiches to larger meals. Fantastic food, great staff and brilliant relaxed surroundings. Well worth a visit
