This little gem of a place is run by two real gentlemen who deserve to succeed

Looking for a lite bite in mid January in bude is not easy but this place was a real find and the guys who run it were welcoming and friendly. The food was pretty good too! Fish and chips with beer batter - excellent. Very tasty and more than I could manage. Wife had vegetable pie which turned out... read more

Been here again recently. Wonderful staff. Wonderful food. Lovely atmosphere. They allow dogs too which is really nice. I watched a few staff interact with dogs and they all washed their hands straight away so you know the hygiene is good. I'd recommend the breakfasts, the calamari is exquisite and the specials board has a lot of nice things on... More

We've been to Urchins a few times and have found it consistently one of the best places in Bude to pop in for a drink and something to eat. It is warm, comfortable and the service is excellent! At no point do you feel harassed, but you know that if you need someone, they aren't far away. Definitely recommended. NB:... More

I've put great as usual, which the food and service was. My big complaint is that they allow dogs in there. Which I think for a food premises is wrong and is starting to put us off going there!.

Return visit with my partner. Had a super burger and scampi and it was very nice. The staff could not be anymore helpful and were very welcoming. Great choice of food on the menu and reasonable price for the quality of food. Would recommend :-)

Came here last week during half term. As soon as we came in we were told there was a wait on food, but I felt as though the waitress didn't want us to come in at all. The food came and it was wonderful and all the other staff seemed lovely too. But the young female waitress was so miserable... More

Everything was OK although staff a little 'cold' (lacking personality or seemingly time to interact) however quality of food was of a high level, piping hot and freshly cooked
