“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We visit Urchins frequently and always find the food and service exemplary. You can get cheaper but as the old adage goes "You get what you pay for".

“Smells like dog”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The service was distinctly surly and we got the feeling that dogs were actually more welcome than humans here. I own a dog myself, but found the smell of damp dog in the restaurant was overpowering, despite there not being any dogs there at the time. We thought the food was pretty average, and the whole experience was brought down further by the arrogant and sniffy manner of the staff.

“good eating in bude”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Good food in newly refurbished restaurant. excellent fresh and local food wherever possible, served by front of house Andrew one of the owners. Nothing too much trouble, dogs and well behaved children welcome. Gary co owner and chef will also come and say hello if he has a minute!!
We particularly liked the calamari, and fresh local fish, desserts are good and there is an excellent range of beers,wines and spirits. Would recommend to anyone who wants quality food at a reasonable price.

“Lunch at Urchins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

What a find for lunch - freshly caught fish, excelent chips and mushy peas, The owners are friendly and greate the right atmosphere. Looking at the menus, the only problem was we didn't find it until the end of our holiday!
