Good town centre bistro

We had 4 vegetarians, 2 of whom eat fish. The fish pie was good, but needed more fish! Risotto and pasta very good. Local beers were available in bottles.

Looked nice, no trouble with tables, just wanted a drink after walking around Bude. Ordered milkshakes and coffee, 3 adults and 2 children. Nothing wrong yet, then a man who I can only assume was the manager then very hostile inquired as to what we wanted to eat. We politely informed him it was only a drink we were after.... More

It was a flying visit for us to Bude and needed somewhere to eat quickly. On first impressions, it was as very busy which is always a good sign. Food was gorgeous, great presentation and the service was top class.I would highly recommend a visit you won't be disappointed !

4 children with 4 adults had a wonderful meal in Urchins. Not only was the food superb, but also the presentation. It looked wonderful. Service was excellent and staff were extremely attentive, especially to the children aged 8-11. Lots of food choices in Bude, but would highly recommend this lovely Bistro.

Looked smart clean and well kept as we arrived for lunch, the sort of place you would think would be perfect for a family gathering with food in mind . . . My suspicions arose after we were told that there was not a table large enough at that time for all of us (there clearly was) we were a... More
