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

Arrived on a Monday night and found the Love Mondays deal which offered an outstanding value for money deal on well cooked, interesting food. A carafe of water arrived on the table without being asked for, which is refreshing. Starters were tasty, bruschetta and trout (although the latter turned out to be a slice of salmon, but nice anyway). Mains... More

As with previous reviews please note that this is the Bistro attached to the Hotel and not Urban Reef which is on the sea front. Seaside towns often suffer from unimaginative eating options but Boscombe enjoys a high end Bistro which serves not only the Hotel but has become a focal point within the community. Locals visit throughout the day,... More

Urban Beach is between Boscombe and the beach and is a hotel / bar. Similar ambience to it's sister bar/restaurant at Urban Reef but cosier. Food is always excellent and adventurous. Could do with a decent beer on tap.

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
