We had a lovely lunch with the calamari and the crab risotto being a real hit! Our dog was also allowed in and was offered some dog biscuits and fuss immediately. The service was friendly and quick. Well worth a visit!

Having wandered round Bude for a quiet, clean and appealing eatery, Urchins jumped out at us. A little bit away from the Touristy hustle and bustle, Urchins was quiet and relaxed and was a welcome place to take a bit of time to rest and have something to eat. The chairs and layout were very accommodating even for someone of... More

Really liked the look of this place and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and freshly prepared. I had the cheese and mushroom omelette and my son had a Cornish steak all washed down with a rose wine and a cider. We both had cappuccinos to follow. All in all a very pleasurable experience.

We stopped in at Urchins for lunch and it was absolutely gorgeous!!! We shared the calamari and fresh crab sandwich - if we had stayed longer we would have eaten here everyday!

Have visited Bude many times and always eat at least once during our stay. Called in for lunch - 1.15pm. We went to sit at a free table and before we could sit a young male waiter came across and snapped that we couldn't stay to juast have beverages - we explained that we did want to eat and he,...

Nothing is a problem to the staff, lovely cooked and prepared food, freshly made as you wait, the prices are reasonable, your not waiting long as the staff have the business running like clock work, try the freshly cooked and sourced fish and chips, I loved the beef lasagne and also the different soups on offer each day all freshly...

We were looking for a place to have lunch and all 3 children wanted different things! We stumbled upon Urchins and what a find. Lovely decor, polite staff and good service. The menu is varied with a wide range of specials. We had the fish of the day and our children chose from the children's menu. The milkshakes were delicious.... More

Brilliant fish of the day & chips something of a contrast with what seemed to be straight out of the freezer scampi. Children had omelette and steak, albeit neither was offered salad without dressing, so didn't make much progress with their 5-a-day! Service, and in particular table clearing or offering a 2nd drink was slow, offset by excellent treacle tart... More
