We're very fond of Urchins and it's our favourite lunch-time stop when we're holidaying in Bude. The food is excellent and beautifully presented (to a higher standard than I would expect from this style of restaurant) and the venue is equally as stylish. We've visited Urchins whilst in Bude over several years and the quality has been consistent.

Me and my family decided to eat here on the last day of our last family holiday, and I am so glad we did. A beautiful chilled atmosphere, very relaxing and cosy; with exceptionally pleasant staff who saw to our every need and whim. They even russled up some BBQ sauce to go with my steak. It was fairly busy... More

This establishment closes at 8 on a Saturday night, we arrived as a party of 8 at 7.45 with a table available and we're refused entry after being told by a member of staff that we could be accommodated, other people were also refused prior to ourselves. This begs the question, why do these people open a restuarent and then... More

Hi Many thanks for taking the time to write your review. I have talked to all staff members on duty on Saturday night and all assure me without fail that they did not close until 8.00pm as stated on the door. The waitress you spoke to remembers the incident well, we did not have a table for 8 available but... More

We tried to go here for coffee and brunch with a party of 6 adults and a 1 yr old - hardly a huge amount of people. But it was as though we had asked for the moon. We were told that there was just one table of six and that was taken (by two adults and a child). The... More

I’m trying to be as fair as possible with this review, but I have to say that I was very disappointed with the overall experience. I had no particular expectations, knowing nothing about the restaurant in advance and not having read any reviews, nor seen their Tripadvisor rating or menu in advance. We were on holiday in a party of... More

We popped here lunch and the whole family enjoy it. I can not understand how any one can rate this place terrible. If I am ever back in Bude, I will go for a revisit.
