No frills, no fuss, just great service and fantastic food.

My kids always ask to come here when we visit Bude. I doesn't matter if you are looking for a simple snack, or something more substantial, you should find something to suit your mood at Urchins. The squid salad was really good, and pretty good value too.

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

We went here for an evening of music and a meal. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was amazing. The music was also excellent. We also popped in for a hot chocolate and ice cream the following afternoon and they were both great. Staff here are lovely and it is just a nice place to relax and chill out.

We called in for a snack whilst touring the area and were pleasantly surprised. We had a toastie, tuna sandwich and some cheesy chips with tea all round. The food was good value and very tasty without being too expensive or pretentious. Judging by how busy it was I guess the meals were good too.

I am soooo full writing this review! What a lunch! For a small venue the menu was extensive, and a specials board with over a dozen additional items on it! Steak cooked blue was spot on, cooked medium was cooked perfectly too. The cottage pie from the specials board was full of flavour! The jacket potato options were huge! Only... More

The opening times/closing times seem to be eratic and I have gone to eat there only to find it closed. Food good and atmosphere good. Seats are rather heavy and hard. Toilets are outside and up an alley....??
