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

We were looking for a place to eat before going to the O2 Academy and came across Urban Beach - what a find ! A nice laid back atmosphere, efficient service, tasty food and a decent range of drinks mean we'll be back soon, preferably when it is a little warmer so the outside space can be enjoyed. It was...

I visited with my daughter, we just went to have a coffee. We were served almost immediately, coffee came 3 mins later and was very good. Loved the fairtrade sugar. We browsed through a menu and will definately be back as the food looks and sounds amazing. We were very lucky the sun was out and we could take advantage... More

After working in the hospitality industry for over six years, you can never be too busy to at least acknowledge someone that has walked into your establishment. Tried to visit this restaurant recently with my elderly parents. Entered the door and waited for approximately 5 minutes where we were walked past by two different members of staff that did not...

I'm a tad biased as Urban Beach is one of my local establishments. That being said, there is a reason i hold it in high regard. The coffee is of great quality, the food is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced and the staff are without a doubt the kindest, most attentive and knowledgable you could ask for. Want the main...

It took me a while but I finally visited Urban Beach last weekend! The menu is ok. That's about the sum of my review for that. It's quite a short menu so I was expecting the food to be mindblowingly good (this always seems to be the case with short menu establishments) but it just didn't really blow me away,... More

I was taken here as a surprise by my better half. The restaurant was fantastic! The food was excellent and very good value, and the staff were amazing. I enjoy my food, and this was one of the best meals I have had. The hotel side of the visit was equally as good. The room was spacious and clean, with... More
