Beautiful Food great service

Thanks to chefs at Urchins the pork steak was fantastic. The kind of dish where you want to lick the plate clean, but you know that's not dignified. Kids cleaned their plates too. Thought the decor was very fresh and modern. We had Emily as our waitress and she made sure the service matched the... read more

Great food, great value! After seeing this place on our first walk around town we promised ourselves a meal here before we left. The menu and specials board offer a good selection of meals. The childrens meals are almost half the adults price and yet were nearly the same size! Definitely book in advance, as walk-in's can make this restaurant... More

Great menu (even the kids chose with no moaning. !) the adults chose off the specials board and we were not disappointed. The fresh food is cooked to order not taken... More

Well with popping in to urchins if you are local or visiting Bude. Always a friendly welcome and the owner remembers a face which is great! The food and service is spot on although I would welcome some air conditioning during the summer months! Lovely find and you will not be disappointed!

We dived in for a family breakfast to escape the rain and really enjoyed Urchins. They had a selection of small cereal boxes on hands for the boys (aged 2 and 7) and my wife and I enjoyed a classic fry up. Great British fayre and really nice staff (despite the rain).

We ate here last year (2014) and it was excellent and so vowed to do so again. The issue is that it seems to be mostly closed. We thought we had it sorted the other Saturday........ it was open. We first browsed the menu from outside and then walked in to get seated - alas to be told we were... More

Hi Many thanks for taking the time to post your review although I do feel its a little unfair and maybe you don't actually realise how damaging to our business reviews like yours can be. The board outside clearly displays our current opening times based on the time of year and the level of trade, this clearly stated dinner was... More

Our first time in Bude for over 40 years, so didn't have a clue where to have lunch. We walked around and eventually found this place. We both had fish and chips which was excellent. The place is very clean and the staff friendly. We'll be back.
