I love going to Urban Beach for many reasons; the food is great, the atmosphere is relaxed and cosy and the staff are friendly and attentive. I have NEVER stayed in the hotel due to living in Bournemouth, however if the accommodation is anywhere close to the standard of the restaurant I'm sure it's well worth a stay! Urban beach...

Went there for a three course meal just before Christmas. We had a large group with us and this was the second time we had been there. Unfortunately, our second visit we were not impressed with the service or the food. It was tasteless and over priced. To add to this drinks were really expensive, £28 for a bottle of...

So how many times have you eaten out and selected 'home cooked' or 'thrice cooked' chips from the menu and been bitterly disappointed ??? Well for the first time in my life I've eaten somewhere that's pulled it off ! Amazing, crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy in the middle. That's worth 5ive stars alone. I'd class this a...

We only booked the rooms we stayed in about 2 hours before we arrived at the Urban Beach and were so pleased we did. The rooms were all clean, bright and fairly newly refurbish I should say. I stayed in a single room which was compact but had everything I could need. Colleagues stayed in bigger rooms and each one...

Although this is a few miles from home, we try and visit most Sundays for what we believe are the best breakfasts and roasts in town . To boot this restaurant has such a laid back and cool vibe plus the staff are amazing ! Way better than Urban Reef !!

Sunday lunch at Urban Beach is 2 or 3 courses @ a reasonable £15 or £19, the quality of the food was excellent and the staff were all friendly and attentive. We arrived with no booking so took a table in the open plan conservatory type extension. Although it was chilly outside the heated seats and numbers of people made...

Just had a lovely overnight stay at Urban Beach. Although fleeting, the place is just the right side of funky and kitsch. A little bit worn around the edges, it's still got a lovely relaxed charm and judging by the newly refurbished deck outside the bar area, it looks as though the owners are sorting the decor out. Our room...
