When the sun is out, this is a super spot close to Boscombe Pier. You could almost imagine that you are somewhere far more exotic. It is also fairly well shielded from the wind.by glass panels. We had a very nice lunch and also coffee a couple of times. Friendly, cheerful staff but you do need... read more

Visited with another couple and our toddler. Staff was very friendly and helpful. My lamb meal was one of the best meals of the year. Cooked to perfection, nice sauce, good size.

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

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
