We popped into Urchins for lunch when we visited Bude. The pricing is very reasonable and the staff are so lovely. I had a cream tea with two scones, still warm from the oven! My boyfriend had an English breakfast which looked yummy and he polished it all off so it must have been good! The only issue was the... More

I'd been here before and liked the lunchtime food, this was before I was a mum though. Once my daughter was born I wanted to go for lunch with my step daughter and my partner, upon arriving there i was greeted by a lovely girl who quickly pointed to a table of two out of the way (at this point...

Had another lovely evening. Excellent food and service as always, great entertainment. Not sure how Gary, Andrew and their team manage on these very busy evenings (and other busy times), but the do a great job and the results are worth it. Looking forward to the next but will be in many times before then.

Lovely bistro. Had a bit of a wait for food as two of the kitchen staff had called in sick. Lamb shanks were delicious as was veggie burger, both presented well. Friendly staff.

We said no worries, 45 minutes later our food still had not arrived. The manager's response was that we had arrived at a busy time! We said we were leaving and he aggressively said you have... More

We walked in and fair enough he was having problems with his kitchen but there is no need to be rude to potential customers. Will not be trying to eat here again.

I had a really nice meal here, it gets very hot in the summer evenings as they can't open any windows so make sure you dress appropriately! The staff were very attentive and the food was nice, waited a little long for the starters and it was very average prawn and smoked salmon salad with barely any smoked salmon, the... More

We found this restaurant last year and now has become a highlight of ours when visiting the area. Myself and my partner have had many delicious home cooked meals here and our black lab loves the doggy biscuit treats after the excitement of the beach. We have been made to feel very welcome here even though we are not locals... More
