I am not a fan of big portions but I left this restaurant hungry after £12 seafood lingunie I have had here for lunch. I had to cook myself extra pasta on returning home. Either this meal should have been at smaller price or served in bigger portion. My little one's burger was dry and dense which made it hard... More

Amazing breakfast at Urban Beach - gorgeous smoked salmon, perfectly toasted granary bread, and lush soft free range poached eggs. Hard to beat anywhere. Service was attentive but casual enough to leave you to enjoy the morning feast. Highly recommended.

Came for breakfast today, the restaurant wasn't busy but it took 15 minutes for our coffee to arrive and it wasn't that hot. Our breakfast took another 30 minutes to arrive. The smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were apparently delicious but the full English was disappointing as was the mackerel. My eggs royal was dreadful, dry hollandaise sauce and poached... More

We were really impressed with comfortable decor of Urban Beach and the friendly staff BUT when our Sunday veggie roast arrived, exceptionally dry and uninviting one was left feeling totally let down. After asking for veggie gravy we were advised they did not have any and the kitchen could rally up a creamy sauce which is not suitable for a... More

Had the best beef Wellington I have ever eaten. The staff were friendly and happy. The surroundings clean, welcoming and very well set out. Would recommend it highly.

We stayed here for a night recently. Upon walking in I was immediately impressed with the beach café feel to the covered outdoor bar. Rustic ropes, ferns and other seaside accoutrements gave it an authentic shore feel, despite being located right in the middle of a residential area. The same theme continues inside, but to a lesser extent. We were... More

as always the food and service was excellent - as always I forgot to order vegetables; it is the one thing that I never come to terms with, having to order veg separately, they should be included

What an excellent place for a mid-week lunch, witnessed by the fact that all of the tables were full. The decor is eclectic but fun, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the food was very good. The club sandwiches were huge and very tasty and the barley risotto with sweet potato was delicious and filling. Highly recommended.
