Great place for breakfast

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

Walking along the promenade on my birthday, we stopped off to enjoy a cool drink along with lots of other visitors. Lovely ambience, good view, tasty drinks. Staff very friendly and amiable. No service charge but a FREE hug, which I gave our waiter. Highly recommended. Have visited a few times via the DWiB group for breakfast. Urban Beach have... More

No beer served as ordered, the grilled octopus had a weird texture and didn't seem grilled at all as it was all the same colour and this is one of my favourite meals I eat it in Greece and Spain all the time. Mussels in cream soup, yuk, absolutely no sea food flavour left but the mussels were well cooked,... More

I recently enjoyed an evening here and would highly recommend. The food was hearty and delicious and the portions generous (possibly the largest pork chop I've ever seen). The staff were very accommodating and happily left us alone to enjoy our pre-dining drinks without rushing us to order, all in all and enjoyable evening and I plan to return.

...a shame because it's easy walking distance to our favourite Guest House. I thought £19.00 for a rib-eye steak was a bit much, I'd pay that for a fillet steak all day. A bottle of wine though was very reasonable and very drinkable.

Situated right on the prom. just after Boscombe Pier is the fun buzzing Urban Beach bar and restaurant. Contemporary style with wooden tables and floors and a real sense of welcome and fun place to either chill with a beer or dine. The food is plentiful, reasonably priced and well presented in a timely fashion. Children are catered for with... More

Went to this place place recommended by a friend with 4 of us. Food we had was spot on. We all drank beer all night and that was delivered just as they noticed we were running low. Staff were really attentive without being overbearing. Didn't get the name of the young lady who served us all night but she was... More
