The restaurant was really busy that night. It was really hot and the restaurant had little space. The service was also fairly slow.

Would just like to say that we had a fabulous evening at Urchins on 12th July. A combination of fantastic live music provided by local musician Gary McCausland and delicious food (as ever) provided by Gary and Andrew the proprietors. We did make their life more difficult by adding more people to our table but they were very accommodating, nothing... More

It was your choice to enter the bistro upon which you found it unbearably hot maybe it was then your choice to maybe leave rather than suffer the heat. Our food is far from rubbish we use only...

I visit Bude quite regularly, and always have a morning coffee and sometimes light snack at Urchins. The coffee is ALWAYS of an excellent standard. The staff are friendly and accomodating. I see quite a few local people using it (I used to live near Bude many,many years ago) The service is always good and prices are reasonable.

Visited Urchins now on two occasions first in June 2013 and were greeted with warm friendly staff with a relaxing atmosphere. The food on both occasions was excellent...we would recommend the ploughman's for a wholesome tasty lunch.

If your looking for fast food the you will be disappointed. if its great tasting, well presented food in intimate surroundings then this is the place to go. It is small and a little quirky and the...
