My wife finished the chicken, and when the waitress came, she asked if I'd eaten, seeing the cutlery still there, I explained... More

I visited Urban Beach Restaurant recently with three friends, two of whom were visiting from Somerset. We were originally booked for a table at their sister Restaurant Urban Reef to enjoy their wonderful food and enjoy the sea views from their outside decking area. However with the significant change in weather conditions we changed our reservation to Urban Beach who... More

Good service, great food. We decided to share nacho's and the chicken/bacon club sandwich which proved to be the best of both worlds, Fab lunch for 2

I was introduced to the Urban Beach a couple of months ago and have been back 3 times since. The food is good and the £10 lunch menu for two courses is really excellent value. The staff are friendly and helpful and the casual ambience is just right. I just wish that the outside seating had umbrellas as I can't... More

We had avoided Urban Beach for a couple of years because the service was so slow. But the hot sunny morning demanded breakfast on the beach so we thought we would give it another try. So glad we did. We had prompt service, great coffee and a superb full English breakfast whilst watching the sea.

A wonderfully friendly and relaxed local. Whether I'm popping in for a quick drink or hanging around for dinner I always have a great time at urban beach. The food menu has a good varied selection and changes seasonally. The ham hock pie is delicious - as are their breakfasts and Sunday roasts! Whenever I have guests in town I... More

My partner (who's used this place often) took me here for lunch. Tucked up inside Bournemouth's unending but not unpleasant suburban sprawl, it doesn't look immediately promising from the outside, but it offers excellent food at very reasonable prices, in a somewhat quirky and very relaxed environment. Tables are well spaced and chairs are upholstered. There are menu choices ranging... More
